This is a rather remarkable video, certainly something you don’t see everyday. We all know how siblings love to fight when out of the womb, but have you ever thought about what may happen in the womb when there is more than one occupant?
In this video, you will witness two twins fighting for space in their mother’s womb. Kicking and occasionally pushing one another in order to just squeeze out an extra inch.
A report from the Public Library of Science One says that twin fetuses learn to be social from within the womb.
This video was captured while researchers were trying to examine a rare medical condition, potentially lethal among twins in the name of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. It has further been claimed that the syndrome occurs in identical twins, as blood moves from one to another. If researchers at London’s Center for Fetal Care are to be believed, this condition can be life-threatening for them, as it can cause stroke or hemorrhage in one or both of the twins’ brains.
However, the video found the twins kicking each other so that they can get space as per their comfort inside their mother’s womb. “What this lets us do is see their positions in relation to each other and how much space they occupy, and how they might move around and push each other out of the way”, said Dr. Marisa Taylor-Clarke.
