Lauren and Chris Meehan welcomed twins at the HCA Healthcare’s Rose Medical Center in Denver, Colorado. But when they revealed the names of their newborns to the nurses, everyone were stunned.
The parents and the medical staffs at the hospital were in for a great and pleasant surprise when they found out that the twins share the same names as the two nurses who would taking care of the babies.
Lauren explained that the nurses had asked in the labor room if they had picked out names yet. “We stopped and were like, “Yup, we liked Emma and Julia,” and the room got kind of quiet. They all looked around, everyone started to giggle. Because we found out that the two nurses that were going to take care of the babies when they did come, were both Emma and Julia.”
Sharing the same delight and surprise, nurses Emma and Julia expressed their feelings saying, “I think we were just so excited, we couldn’t believe it. I feel like it is pretty rare to have that coincidence in general and especially with twins and two nurses. That just doesn’t happen around here.”
Meehan said: “Those two nurses will always be special to us and the entire team that took care of us that day with hold a special place in our hearts. It will be a funny story to tell our girls!’
The rare coincidence has made the birth of the twins all the more special and memorable both for the the parents and the hospital staffs, especially the two nurse.
