Does monoamniotic pregnancy benefit babies in some way?

In brief: Not really.

Monochorionic monoamniotic pregnancies are extremely rare (<1% of all twins) and very complicated because fetal demise (of one or both twins) can occur without any warning from umbilical cord entanglement.
You may be referring to the "protection" from ttts (twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome) in mono/mono twins; this is indeed true, however the risks above trump that benefit.
