Identical Twins Give Birth On The Same Day After They Each Suffer Miscarriages
A pair of identical twin sisters from Fresno, California just became mothers together when they each gave birth to a baby on the very same day.
Bao Kou Julie Yang and Bao Nhia Julia Yang are 23 year-old twins whose due dates were actually two days apart. On November 4, however, the twins both went into labor at the same hospital, welcoming their rainbow babies on the same day.
Bao Kou was the first to give birth at Fresno’s Community Regional Medical Center when she welcomed her first baby, daughter Nadalie Xiong. Less than two hours later, Bao Nhia welcomed her third child when her daughter Candra Thao. Making things even crazier is the fact that Bao Kou did not even know her sister was in labor in the very next room until after Candra was born!
“I knew that I was going to be in labor and then I told her and then she was like, ‘I’m having pain here and there too, I might be in there with you too’ and then later on that day, my husband was like, ‘Oh I saw your sister next door,'” Bao Kou explained. “I was definitely in shock, but I was happy for the both of us. It’s really a miracle.”
Though the babies were both born a week early, they are each healthy as of this writing. Bao Kou said that the births were even more special for the twins because each of them had suffered miscarriages “within months” of one another.
“My sister and I went through miscarriages together and that definitely brought us closer,” she admitted. “Being able to see her, being able to have her be there and keeping me together after our miscarriages was something that was very important to me.”
Now, the twins are getting ready to enjoy motherhood together!
“I think that me and Julia will try our best to ensure that our children know what a close bond she and I have,” Bao Kou concluded. “Hopefully they will get to share that as well.”
