All Ann Le wanted was for her twin girls to be healthy after arriving 12 weeks early, so when they shared their first out-of-womb interaction on her chest, the moment was even more rewarding.
During her pregnancy, Le learned that she was carrying mono-chorionic mono-amniotic twins. The condition, referred to as “momo” twins, happens when the babies share an amniotic sac and placenta, according to Very Well Family.
Ahead of the delivery, doctors explained that Le’s pregnancy was very high-risk, so the Australian mother and her husband Jason Poon were simply hoping for both their girls to survive.
When Olivia and Zoe arrived three months early in January, the babies were instantly transferred to separate incubators in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to regulate their breathing. It was nearly a month before the girls finally met face-to-face outside of the womb.
While introducing her premature babies for the very first time since their birth last week, Le’s daughters laid on her chest side-by-side. She was immediately taken aback, however, when Zoe lovingly placed her arm over her sister’s back and snuggled into her.
“27 days after birth the girls finally got to meet. Zoe immediately went in for the hug ]]>😍😍😍
