Precious: Twins Meet for the First Time After Birth and Immediately Hug
A mom captured the sweetest picture of her premature twin girls meeting for the first time after birth.
Twins Olivia and Zoe were born at just 28 weeks and had to stay in the NICU in separate incubators for 27 days. “The twins were very high risk because they were mono-chorionic mono-amniotic, meaning they shared a placenta and amniotic sac in the womb. This condition is sometimes called “momo” twins, which inspired the name of Le’s Instagram account ‘The Momo Twin Experience,'” according to Live Action.
Meeting each other, 27 days after being born, “Zoe immediately went in for the hug,” according to the mom’s Instagram post.
In an interview with Today, mom Ann Le said, “My heart just instantly melted. After all the difficult weeks of keeping them apart, I was so relieved they could be reunited and had an ingrained bond.”
“Olivia was placed on my chest first, followed by Zoe who reached out her left arm in preparation to hug her sister,” Le said. “They both just laid on my chest and snuggled up to each other for a while. Everything was perfect — we finally felt like a family.”
Ann Le and husband Jason Poon had hopes of bringing the girls home in April but have recently learned that the twins need heart surgery.
Prayers for a speedy recovery for Zoe and Olivia.
