The doctors revealed that their babies were rare mono-mono twins and were under risk, but these precious souls were predestined to survive. Their beautiful bond between will indeed last forever, simply as they learned to share and support, from the moment of their conception!
Hayley and Charlie Lampshire, from Kidlington, Oxfordshire, married in 2015; the couple was thrilled and overjoyed when they found out that Hayley was pregnant a few months later.
But soon the happy would-be parents were heart broken when they were told that their babies were a rare mono-mono twins. This meant that they shared the same amniotic sac and their umbilical cords could either cut of each other’s supply of food or strangle one or both of them as they grew.
“It was all pretty worrying at the beginning,” Hayley told Inside Edition. “If that did happen, then it would be likely that we wouldn’t know. We couldn’t do anything to prevent it, which was the scariest part.”
The uncertainty of the situation was most disturbing. So every one to two weeks, Hayley went in for an ultrasound to check on the twins.
Every time, she saw the two boys, cuddling or holding hands in the womb. “They were always really close and tucked up together. Each time they seemed to be doing well,” Hayley said.
The wait and anxiety came to an end when the twins, Rowan and Blake, were born through a C-section on August 25.
“The boys were born 36 seconds apart and were taken straight to special care,” their mom said. “They had fluid on their lungs and were struggling to breathe on their own.”
“They settle a lot better when they are together,” Hayley said. “They chat together [and] sleep in the same crib. They have a really good bond. They are healthy and happy.”
It is extremely heart warming to see the twin brothers holding hands and cuddling all the time. Just like normal twins, they share a very special bond between them, including their own very special secret baby language.
After all, they knew each other even before they were born!
