Loss in utero or the womb has two levels of grief: One for the parents and probably one for the survivor(s) at some point in time. From time to time, it happens that a parent may feel that their survivor is responsible for the death of the co-multiple in utero. One survivor shared that she had a difficult relationship with her mother and when she was in her mid-twenties, her mother ‘lost it’ and screamed at her that she had killed and eaten her twin in the womb. Such a situation isn’t possible and the loss in the womb isn’t anyone’s fault. From time to time for no apparent reason a fetus is absorbed (Vanishing Twin Syndrome) or miscarried at some point in the pregnancy. Neither the survivor or the mother is responsible. More likely is that one embryo was unhealthy and unable to properly attach itself to the uterine wall to obtain the maternal nutrition it needed to grow and develop as its co-multiple did. We don’t exactly know why this happens, but it does from time to time.
