Having a baby is exciting and stressful, but having twins is even more so, in fact, its one of the most exciting experiences to go through! It comes with its own challenges and sometimes serious complications with mom or baby.
Giving birth takes its toll in the body, one mom got the surprise of her life when it was time to give birth, even the doctors were in awe!
Around 10-15% of pregnancies are estimated to start with twins but, sadly, end up with only one baby. It’s called the “vanishing twin” syndrome, many mothers never find out even. It is more common to need extra care as a mother of twins though, more observations, and many things can go wrong too.
Sara Thistlewaite, a math teacher from Ohio decided it was time to start a family of her own with her husband. They were excited for the arrival of their tiny babies, identical twins, they had many many questions!
As it happens the twins were having a really rather rare set of twins, they were identical but monoamniotic twins, which means that they shared the same anionic sac inside the mom’s womb. That was a 1 in 10,000 chance that they had babies like this, straight away, they knew they were special!
….they didn’t expect a delivery as special as the pregnancy though!
Sarah spent over two months in the hospital due to her rare pregnancy, every single person concerned was interested in the rare pregnancy, she began to feel like she was under a microscope. But what she did not know was that it was about to get worse…
The couple, early on, knew that Sarah was set to have a C-section because the babies were completely together, right next to each other. The doctors thought said that it was a routine procedure and said that everything would be just fine.
The Doctors gaped in shock though, it was really apparent that what they were seeing was unusual…
Sara had a screen that covered un what was happening and what the doctors were doing. She just wanted to hear her baby cry, it would indicate normal breathing and a successful birth had happened. But instead, she just heard noises of shock as the babies were taken from her womb.
