Nicole Cramer and Naomi Sale are twin sisters who were both pregnant.
When Nicole went to the hospital to visit her sister’s baby, she had no idea that soon she would be delivering her own child. After visiting the new baby she went home because she was experiencing contractions.
Within hours, Cramer was in the delivery room of DeKalb Memorial Hospital.
After a 1 1/2-hour labor, Cramer delivered Carter Nathaniel Birchfield.
“This solidifies the theory on the bond between twins,” Weghorst said. “Even their uteri have a bond.”
Cramer and Sale celebrate their 23rd birthdays Jan. 29. They were due to give birth within a day of each other at the end of January, but Weghorst’s office didn’t figure out they were twins until they were eight months along.
The sisters explained, in unison, that they usually had their appointments on the same day, but at different times.
Weghorst, who has been in practice for eight years, said the close deliveries were a first for him.
“I’ve delivered two sets of twins in the same day, but never this,” he said.
