Types of Twins

0 mums' stories

Twins can either be identical (monozygotic), meaning they develop from a single fertilised egg which splits and forms two embryos. Or they can be fraternal (dizygotic) which means that each embryo has developed from a separate egg and separate sperm.

There were 4,497 sets of twins born in Australia in 2016. Approximately one-third of twins are identical and the remaining two-thirds are fraternal twins.
