Twins @ 24 weeks kidney failure

Patient: Hello.My wife has End Stage Kidney Disease at age 30, for about a year now. She has had 2 kids before her kidney failure. We just learned 2 days ago she was pregnant again….with twins. We had no idea because she hasn’t had a menstrual cycle in over a year. We also learned that the babies have kidney failure caused by her blood pressure medicine, licinipril. She is 24 weeks. Can the babies regain kidney function so that they produce enough fluid in their sacks before she is term? Is there anything we can do to improve their chances?
