Mum discovers twins have same names as hospital nurses in delivery room: 'Meant to be'

By Naomi White|

I?n an incredible coincidence, a mum found out that the nurses who would be looking after her newborn twins after delivery shared their names.

Lauren Meehan, from Colorado in the US, was surprised when she found out she was pregnant two years after welcoming her first child. And the shocks kept coming when she was told she was expecting twins.

But the biggest surprise came in the delivery room, when the twins decided to "make an early and quick arrival in the middle of the night."

Because she was having twins, Meehan said she was taken to the operating theatre at Rose Medical Centre for the birth, with two teams of doctors and nur?ses in attendance.

It was here that one of her medical team tried to keep the conversation flowing to calm her nerves, and asked if they'd thought of names yet.

"As we were about to deliver, the team asked me if we had names picked out," Meehan said in a statement shared with 9Honey Parenting.

"We told the room that we loved the names Emma and Julia. The room all broke out in laughter as the two nurses that would be taking care of my babies were both named Emma and Julia!" she continued.

"At that moment, in all the chaos, we were able to stop for a second and enjoy that moment knowing that those names were meant to be."

Admitting the nurses would "always be special to us", Meehan said it made the birth extra memorable and would be a funny story to tell the girls when they were older.
