Find Out How Identical twins could be born months apart


twinsA pair of identical twins in Washington state could be born months apart.

Their mother Holli Gorveatt gave birth to Link on September 29th, and doctors are hoping to deliver his brother Logan in another 15 weeks or so.

The unusual situation is the result of a rare complication called Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome in which blood flows unevenly between twins who share one placenta.

This causes one baby to become bloated with too much blood while the other becomes anemic from a lack of it.

Because of a complication from the condition, which has a very high fatality rate, doctors decided to deliver Link early at just 23 weeks.

The baby weighed slightly more than one pound and is too underdeveloped to be picked up.

His brother Logan, on the other hand, is still in the womb and may be able to be delivered in January.

The family has since started a GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses.
