Twin sisters in California passed on their tradition of sharing a birthday, giving birth to baby daughters within an hour of each other.
Fresno sisters Bao Nhia Julia Yang and Bao Kou Julie Yang, 23, unexpectedly went into labor at the same time, although their due dates were two days apart, KPGE reported.
“I started having like, I started spotting, so I think I knew that I was going to be in labor. And, then, I told her, and she was like ‘I’m having pain here and there, too. I might be in there with you, too,'” Bao Kou told KPGE.
Sure enough, both had baby girls Sunday night at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno.
“It’s like a miracle,” Bao Kou said.
Laura Schleicher, a nurse who helped deliver the babies, told KPGE, in 18 years at the medical center, she’d never seen twins give birth on the same day.
“They just had great timing, very unique timing,” Schleicher said.
Bao Nhia told KPGE that her daughter, Candra Thao, weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces. Bao Kou said her daughter, Nadalie Xiong, was “7 pounds, exactly. Almost the same!”
