10 Amazing Birth Stories
Giving birth is an amazing miracle in and of itself, but as you read on, you will find it to be more so in some cases!
I find myself on the weirdest websites, reading the weirdest stories... this included. I found the '10 Most Curious Birth Stories' on Oddee.com and curiously enough, 2 of the stories were from Michigan.
The article includes stories of a woman giving birth to twins of different race, a woman giving birth to twins... IN DIFFERENT YEARS, and the 2 stories that are out of Michigan (listed below).
The twin sisters who gave birth at the same day, at the same hospital
Twin sisters and best friends can add giving birth to the list of life experiences they have shared. Amy Gilbert and Allison Oliverio, both 25-years-old, were only a wall apart at Henry Ford Macomb hospital while both gave birth for the first time and the babies, just 14 minutes apart. Dr. Timothy Kim was back and forth delivering both babies. I've been doing this for 12 years and I never heard of twins having a baby on the same day,” said Dr. Kim. Amy gave birth to baby Claire and Allison gave birth to baby Garrett. The sisters both married their high school sweethearts six months apart. They say they didn't plan on getting pregnant at the same time. The babies were not only 14 minutes apart, but also a pound and an inch apart.”
