WOMB TWIN SURVIVORS

WombTwin.com was established in 2007 by UK therapist and author, Althea Hayton, who developed the idea that the lone born survivors of a twin or multiple conception exhibit behavioral traits and psychophysiological symptoms which could be noticed, so a Healing Path was developed in print.  Lacking research, she developed a questionnaire which was answered by 1246 respondents, of which only 877 confirmed Womb Twin Survivors had evidence of loss, resulting in the following shared traits which those with proof were found to have in common:

  • All my life I have felt something is MISSING

  • I know I am not realising my true POTENTIAL

  • I have been SEARCHING for something all my life but I don’t know what it is

  • I fear REJECTION

  • I feel DIFFERENT from other people

  • I have a problem with expressing ANGER - either there is too much or too little

  • Deep down, I feel ALONE, even when I am among friends

  •  I fear ABANDONMENT

  • There are TWO SIDES to my character

  • I always feel in some way UNSATISIFIED, but I don’t know why

 
  • All my life I have carried deeply-felt EMOTIONAL PAIN that persists, despite all my efforts to heal myself
