But to our great surprise, the contractions have stopped. Physicians for the first time in my practice, faced with such a phenomenon. At the birth of the twins, usually, the uterus shortens and pushes the two kids. This, according to doctors had happened because of the tiny size of the Amy. The twins — not the first woman’s children — she has an older daughter, 18-year-old Olivia and 16-year-old son Jack.

“At first I couldn’t even feel the joy of motherhood. One my baby was in intensive care, and the second still clinging to life in my womb. I didn’t know if I’m coming back home with at least one of them. But, in the end, got together and decided that he would leave the hospital only with both my girls,” — says the mother of twins.
