‘I was strapped down. ‘What if I feel him cut into me?’ My husband wiped away the tears that ran down my face.’: Mother says newborn’s delivery was the ‘most terrifying day of my life’ after HELLP syndrome diagnosis

“I must have looked terrified. The nurse said, ‘Don’t worry, this may be your first time, but it’s not our first time doing this.’ I strained to hear what the doctor was saying but couldn’t make it out. They’d occasionally laugh so I thought everything was going well. I felt a tug and I suddenly felt hollow. I remember asking, ‘Is she ok?’ She was only 2 pounds. The tiniest baby I had ever seen.”

‘I got pregnant and joked my twin and I would deliver babies together. Sure enough, 2 weeks later she was pregnant, too!’: After battling infertility, miscarriage, twins deliver babies in ‘magical’ moment on same day

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was really excited but also anxious to share the news with my twin due to her fertility struggles. Four days later, she called me to say she was pregnant, and we cried happy tears! Our pregnancies were almost as identical as us. The babies were positioned in the same way, their weights were ounces off, and length was the same. Our doctor and the ultrasound tech could not believe their eyes!”
