Pregnant Mom Has Rare Twins But One Baby’s Umbilical Cord Is Harming The Other


Being parents of a child is one of the most blessing incidents that one can experience. Do you remember the moment when you first met your baby?

I still recall vividly when I saw my daughter for the first time. My husband and I had been waiting so long for the baby at that time, so we were so happy to have our little angel

Much like us, Lisa and her husband had been waiting for a long time little angels of their own to become a part of their family. Choosing to grow your family is no decision to be made lightly, and most couples know that once they are expecting, they expect a number of challenges to come along with it, but Lisa and her husband had no idea that this pregnancy would be especially harder for them.

After a few sonograms, it didn’t take long to find out that the twins they were expecting with exceptionally rare monochorionic monoamniotic twins or “MOMO” twins as many people call them.

MOMO twins are the twins who share the same amniotic sac and, of course, the placenta, but have two separate umbilical cords. Therefore, inside the uterus, the twins are always in danger of cord entanglement.

As most parents know, most pregnancies come with its own set of complications, but because of the particularly high risk and stress and it would to Lisa both emotionally and physically, the parents were given the option to abort one of the twins — But they had already fallen in love with both of them, and couldn’t be more excited and anxious to meet them both, so they made the tough call to keep them both.

Even though they haven’t met them yet, there will always be a connection, and Lisa knew that someone would be missing forever if she missed the opportunity to see one of her children.

But as the twins grew in Lisa’s uterus, not unexpectedly one umbilical cord ended getting tangled around the other’s neck and began to choke her.

Even though she had a few more months to welcome her twins, Lisa had to be hospitalized for close monitoring.

Lisa created a video about her pregnancy and showed all of the ups and downs of her pregnancy.

In the video, we can see from the couple says goodbye to their dog only two weeks before the babies were born to the process of c-section.

We can feel how much Lisa and her husband have waited for their baby and how much they love the little girls.

While watching the video, I couldn’t wait to see the moment the whole family arrives home altogether.

Even though Lisa’s journey was filled with challenges, you can see that both River and Lisa were given birth to safely, thanks to the skilled surgeons.

I feel that one of the keys to happiness is love. Love yourself and everything else falls into place. When we love…

Whatever problems these two had in utero are clearly in the past, and these two couldn’t love each other more.

And remember, family will always be family, despite the hardships that come along with life. Don’t let anything tarnish the true unconditional love we have for each other, whether it be family, friends, or even strangers.
