Spanish term or phrase: parto doble
I know what it actually means in Spanish but I'm having a hard time trying to write it formally in English, having the least amount of words would be ideal but not mandatory. The document literally just states "sexo femenino, nacio a las ---, *en parto doble*, en el Canton -----". This comes from El Salvador and is a simple birth certificate if that adds anything.

"Parto" means "birth" in Spanish. There is no "part". "Parto doble" means "twin birth." The document you are translating indicates that the person's birth was a "parto doble" (twin birth).

Notes to answerer
Asker: would "part of a twin birth" be appropriate or does that sound off?
