Twin Birth

  1. Default Twin Birth
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a twin gestation Mom who delivered one twin prematuraly and retained the second twin. My question is, was the baby we delivered a single birth or a twin birth (for the maternal record), as she was pregnant with twins at time of delivery, however did not deliver both twins.

  2. #2
    I would code the outcome of the delivery the single liveborn.
