Having a pregnancy buddy is usually beneficial, but having your twin sister as that buddy is even better! Of course, it’s much nicer if you’re both due on the same day!
Amber Tramontana and Autum Shaw are identical twins who gave birth to their kids only 10 weeks apart. They’re used to being in sync with one another, but they never expected to give birth to their second children, both girls, on the same day – which also happened to be their birthday!
These two nurse practitioners from Tennessee definitely have that twin intuition thing down. Before Amber could even get the words out when she called Autum to share the news of her second pregnancy, Autum asked, “Are you pregnant?” Amber’s response: “Yes, why are you pregnant?” As it turned out, she was!
Once again, the sisters went through their gestation periods together. Then, as luck would have it, they ended up being induced on the same day, their birthday! They delivered their baby girls 90 minutes apart… in the same hospital… with the same doctor!
After soaking up all the serendipitous beauty, Autum said, “We’ve always done everything together our whole lives. We went to nursing school together, we went to grad school together, we had our boys, and now we have our girls. So it’s almost like, what’s next?”
While some people might feel a little bummed to share their birthday with so many relatives, Autum and Amber are the opposite. In fact, they said this was the best birthday present they could have asked for! According to Amber, their only other wish is that their girls “grow up having the same bond that we do.”
What a wonderful turn of events! Be sure to share this unlikely story with your friends to make them smile.
