The article actually has the statistics incorrect. 3% of all pregnancies are monozygotic (identical) twins. Of these identical twin pregnancies only 1% are monoamniotic/monochorionic (they share a placenta and amniotic sac) like these twins. Mortality rates for these pregnancies used to be about 50% but with the proper care and early delivery success rates have gotten better.
