GONE WITHOUT A TRACE? | Disappearing Heartbeat, Unexplained Bleeding | Heather Fern

Heather Fern, a woman who experienced a missing heartbeat and bleeding during her pregnancy, potentially had a vanishing twin. A vanishing twin occurs when one of the embryos in a multiple pregnancy stops developing and is absorbed by the mother or the surviving twin. This phenomenon is often accompanied by bleeding and a decrease in fetal heartbeat. Despite the absence of one fetus, the remaining twin usually continues to develop normally, and the pregnancy can still proceed successfully.
