Miracle Twins Born at 23 Weeks mark First Holy Communion

By Victoria on September 9, 2017 in Positive News

Recently, twins Ben and Emma Kavanagh beamed at the camera like any other children on their Communion Day, but for their mum and dad it was a milestone they feared they’d never see.
In 2008, the miracle twins were born by emergency Caesarean at 23 weeks and six days old, and at that time, their parents Paula and Niall Kavanagh were told that the chance of the twins surviving was slim.
Critically ill, Ben and Emma weighed just 770g and 660g when they were born in the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin after mum Paula went into early labour at the beginning of her sixth month of pregnancy.
Mum Paula who lives in Co Kildare, said that she had the perfect pregnancy up until that point and had been in the social welfare office registering her maternity leave when she began to experience pains.
Following the birth, the babies were rushed to the Rotunda’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where medical staff worked tirelessly to keep them alive. The two young babies experienced health problems, but against the odds, these two nine-year-olds have reached their First Holy Communion Day.

Against the odds Miracle Twins Born at 23 Weeks Mark First Holy Communion
