Jenna and Jillian were born in a one in 10,000 monoamniotic birth. At the time when they were delivered, the twins immediately reached out to hold each other’s hands. The twins were born 45 seconds apart after defying great odds to survive! And two years later, the girls are inseparable.
Monoamniotic births are a rare condition and affect one in a 10,000 where serious complications could arise. But the twins powered through and two years later, their bond is as infectious as their cute little smiles.
They were born on May 9, 2014. Their mom Sarah was put on a 57-day bed rest to reduce the risks of her pregnancy and her joy was evident when she birthed two healthy girls.
“Sometimes if my husband goes to the store, he’ll take one twin and I’ll keep the other. When that happens, they both get really upset and ask for each other. They’re definitely really close. They’re like two peas in a pod,” says Sarah.
