I was attending a caesarean section for a transverse lie and the baby was doing well, when the attendant brought another one! This baby also did well, and I had been attending a twin delivery without knowing it. This had happened to me once 40 years previously, when the twins had been undiagnosed. This time the problem was one of misunderstanding due to language difficulties, and visual clues such as two lots of resuscitation equipment were simply not available.
