Twin Sisters Give Birth To Babies In Same Hospital Hours Apart

  • 5 years ago
Two twin sisters defied million-to-one odds to give birth to their babies on the same ward in the same hospital - just HOURS apart. Natalie and Leanne Paulson, 21, were due to have their first children over a week apart. But when Leanne went into labour a week later, she was taken to the same ward as her sister. The twins, who are not identical despite looking similar, were even given rooms next to each other at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Leanne gave birth to her son Carter, who weighed 8lb 8oz, at 6.17pm on July 29 while Natalie's daughter Mila-Rose, who weighed 8lb 2oz, was born at 12.02am the next day.
