Sharing Amniotic Sac

Question: Do my twins have to share sacks to be identical?

Answer From Charlene: No, identical twins don’t need to share an amniotic sac to be identical. Although twins who do share a sac also share a placenta having separate umbilical cords and are always identical. They are referred to as Monoamniotic, Monoamniotic - Monochorionic twins or MoMo twins.
