- In the United Kingdom, the charming twins Joe and Ashley were born. They were born into a family that already had four children.
And they weren’t ordinary babies, but rather undersized newborns, like real Tom Thumbs.
They were born in the 23rd week of pregnancy. The girl weighed 403 grams, and her brother almost 430 grams.
According to doctors, the survival chance for the children was only 1 percent.
The little ones were slightly larger than their mother’s palm.
Experts considered them to be the smallest twins in the world.
Their mother, Talia, remembers how doctors told them that babies with such a body weight generally had little luck.
After their birth, the twins spent more than four months in the hospital in the intensive care unit.
And it turned out that the babies had a strong will to live and managed to overcome all difficulties.
But all of this happened thanks to the competent hospital staff.
Talia said that at first, she was afraid to hold the newborn babies because they were so tiny.
And there was a significant risk that the little ones could contract an infection.
But fortunately, everything went well, and gradually, the little ones grew. Now they are surrounded by family care and love.
Parents call them little miracles and love their happy babies.
