The mother’s water broke and after two days of labor, her first twin, Amy, was born.
Then, something strange happened.
Maria’s contractions stopped.
The mother made the decision with her husband and her doctors to “let nature take its course,” and not force a delivery of the second twin. And for the next three months, twin Amy and mother Maria both remained in the hospital.
At 36 weeks, 3 days, Maria was induced and twin Katie was born, healthy and not in need of any medical attention.
