The strength of newborns never ceases to amaze us, not only the parents but also the doctors who encounter cases like Neve’s. She was born premature, and her life expectancy was nil according to the doctors, so she was separated from her twin brother Louie at the time of delivery.
Laura, her mother, had to undergo an ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ in the 30th week of gestation at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, UK. It was detected two weeks earlier that one of the babies in a separate bag had affected her flow due to the ᴅᴇᴛᴇʀɪᴏʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ of the ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇɴᴛᴀ, so it did not receive enough nutrients.
But everyone was wrong, and their proud parents found a beautiful moment of their children showing the innate love that twin babies feel. Laura Hough and Chris Carey have finally been able to share a photo of the two twin brothers finally embracing and holding hands after meeting for the first time two weeks after birth, and that has melted many hearts.
“They’re amazing. They’re so strong. I couldn’t be more proud.”
These are Laura Hough’s words when talking about her children, especially considering that at the time of delivery she was warned that her daughter Neve, who was born prematurely weighing 652 grams, could not survive.
But against all odds, his mother explains that he did not need oxygen ventilator to breathe, something unbelievable. Doctors had never seen that such a small baby did not need help.
But everything went well and the reunion was “so beautiful, they hugged and even held hands.”
But the road here wasn’t easy for the 27-year-old new mother, who says she went into labor ᴛᴇʀʀɪꜰɪᴇᴅ, having been “told during the last few weeks of my pregnancy that I might not survive, but I was fine.”
The twins were treated in different units until they got better and were finally reunited. Because of this, Laura admits that “it was horrible when they were separated at birth, but I cried with joy when they were together again.”
Louie and Neve have finally been allowed to be in the same ɪɴᴄᴜʙᴀᴛᴏʀ together. Her mother has indicated that the doctors hope that their children will be able to return home in May, something that they are looking forward to with all their might.
