AKRON, Ohio (PIX11) — The same Ohio hospital that delivered a set of mono mono twins on Mother’s Day delivered a second set of the rare type of twins less than a week later.
Mono mono twins, meaning they share an amniotic sack, only happen in 1 of 10,000 twin pregnancies. Some never survive to birth because of complications.
JaNiya and Amaya McCail were born via C-section Thursday at Akron General. Twins run in the family, as their mother, Amanda Arnold, is the daughter of and sister of twins as well, according to Akron Children’s Hospital. She was admitted to the hospital about one month prior for monitoring.
The twins are healthy and being treated at Akron Children’s Hospital. They are learning to eat and gaining weight, according to Akron General.
Last week, mono mono twins Jenna and Jillian Thistlethwaite clasped hands seconds after they were born, making a memorable Mother’s Day for parents Sarah and Bill, of Orville.
