What is a fetal pulmonary sequestration and what is treatment like for the baby after delivery?

What is a fetal pulmonary sequestration and what is treatment like for the baby after delivery?

Definition/Prognosis: Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a lump of lung tissue that doesn't connect to the windpipe, so it doesn't work like a lung. In most cases, it doesn't cause any problems. If it fills too much space in the baby's chest, or presses on a vital organ, it needs to be removed.

What is the difference between labor with a multiples and labor with a single baby?

What is the difference between labor with a multiples and labor with a single baby?

More complicated: When the babies are correctly positioned, with the first baby head down, or vertex, rather than breech, they can be delivered vaginally; otherwise a c-section may be required. This usually limits labor to twins. Most concerning is that the uterus starts to contract after delivery of the first infant, which can compromise the placenta of the twin still inside.
