Twin US sisters deliver babies an hour apart
New York, July 29 (ANI): A set of twins from the US have given birth to healthy babies on the same day at the same hospital despite conceiving a month apart.
Shaakira White was accompanying her twin sister Zaakira Mitchell to Palmetto Health Baptist Hospital in Columbia on July 24 for a check-up.
While White's due date was August 1 and Mitchell's was to give birth on July 26.
But during White's checkups, Mitchell told the physician David Ferguson that she felt contractions that morning and he checked to make sure she wasn't entering labour early.
Dr. Ferguson, who discovered that she was already five to six centimetres dilated, started preparing her for a caesarean section.
Mitchell delivered a baby boy, Kadin.
Once Dr. Ferguson knew that Mitchell was healthy and stable, he attended to White.
According to WLTX, White gave birth to twins, Landon and London, one hour later, the New York Daily News reported.
Dr. Ferguson, who was understandably surprised by the timing, admitted that he has never seen anything like this before.
"I've never actually seen just twins pregnant at the same time, more or less delivering on the same day," the tabloid quoted him as telling ABC News.
As far as the twins are concerned, the experience of giving birth was even more meaningful because they did it together.
"That's like my best friend. So for us to share this, that was really special and it was really emotional," Mitchell said. (ANI)
