Mother Gives Birth To Miracle Twins Who Were Holding Hands In The Womb
These identical twins have been holding hands since before they were born...and as it turned out, they needed to help each other to survive.
When Hayley Lampshire learned she was pregnant, her excitement was dampened by a scary scenario.
Since the twins share one amniotic sac, they were in danger of strangling or starving each other if their umbilical cords became tangled.
Doctors said the babies would have to stay as still as possible to survive.
Hayley and her husband were encouraged each time they went for a sonogram to see their boys were holding hands and cuddling.
Rowan and Blake Lampshire were born at 34 weeks weighing 4 pounds each, and 5 months later, they are doing pretty well and are still holding hands.
