You have sparked my interest in the proportion of twins in the UK population as a whole [having a pair in my family] and why there is a current decline in frequency.

I notice that you joined RC in 2017.
The excitement of my granddaughters births was in 2013!
And there were quite a few conversations back then ;D

I still have the certificate from Guinness World Records hanging on my wall :D
(Joint record holders for Most Consecutive Generations of Twins.)

We still have the memories of seeing it on 'One Born every minute'   :):)

Me, too :D
Something weird about seeing your granddaughters being born by C-section on TV!
