When these two sisters became pregnant, they knew they were going to share a special experience. Although they were a little nervous, they were also thrilled with the idea and couldn’t wait to hold their babies in their arms. But when the day finally arrived, a surprising discovery awaited them. Here’s what happened:

Lauren and Lily are two lovely sisters, aged 20 and 17. The girls live in Merseyside, England. The fact that they grew up together already forms a special bond, but Lauren and Lily got to experience something that few sisters get to share—they were both pregnant at the same time.

As the older of the two, Lauren was the first to tell her parents about her pregnancy. Her father, Philip, remembers the moment well. “Lauren was sitting on the couch crying when she told me, and I said, ‘Why are you crying? These things happen.'” But while he had been supportive of Lauren, Lily, who was much younger, tried to keep it a secret for a few months, but he knew something was up. Talking about the big news about his two daughters, he said, “I put on makeup for her, and a couple of months later, I found out about our Lily, but she didn’t want to tell me.” She explained, “I went to her room and said, ‘Do you have something to tell me?’ and she said, ‘Yes,’ and that was it. I came out of the bedroom, and she told me a couple of weeks later.

The sisters were due to be induced 12 days apart. Lauren went into labor on March 23rd when she was induced. Her father was at the hospital with her but returned home early, leaving her with her mother, Karen, and sister, Lily. It looked like everything was going to be fine, so Philip thought he’d better get home, so he grabbed his bike and rode his way back.

But what he didn’t know was that there was a big surprise waiting for him at home. Lily had been at the hospital with her sister but had left to join her friends. He said, “I was at home, and she arrived in a taxi and went up to the bathroom, and her water broke. It was a shock because they were going to induce labor the following Friday. We had to ask the neighbor to take her to the hospital because my car is declared out of service. It was a crazy night.”

Apparently, Lily’s baby was so excited to meet his cousin that he decided to come a little early. Lily was rushed to the hospital, and Mom Karen, who was already in the hospital with Lauren, was then split between her two daughters. Father Philip said, “My son and I had to wait at home because the women’s hospital doesn’t let many people into the maternity ward, so we waited for a call from my mother and went upstairs. Lauren was in the birthing pool, but she wasn’t in pain, so I went to Lily and held her hand.”

Lily was the first to hold her baby in her arms and gave birth to Eder at 12:19, while Lauren had a baby, Sophia, at 17:31. The plan was for Lauren and Lily to stay at the family home until they were settled again, which meant that Philip now had to sleep on the sofa. “I’m waiting until I can finally get my bed back,” he said. “I’ve been on the sofa, but it’s fine. I’m enjoying it. Lauren will be moving into her own place soon. I’ll be moving in with her for a while to help her out.”

Can you imagine sharing such a beautiful experience with your siblings? How special. Despite not being able to sleep in his own bed, it seems Philip was ecstatic too. “I’m thrilled, I really am. I’ve been looking forward to being a grandfather for a long time. I’m grinning like a big Cheshire cat,” he said.

Now, let’s talk about the Gaines girls, four sisters who know how special it can be to share a pregnancy with your siblings. Haley Andrews, Katie DeAngelis, Amy Gossett, and Carolyn Toth, all sisters, are daughters of Beth and Tom Gaines, who had six children in total and call themselves the Gaines girls. The four sisters have always shared a very close bond. They were all born within three years of each other, and two of them are identical twins. Growing up, the girls were very close and did everything together, and have been so for the past three decades. However, the experience they shared in 2021 was truly extraordinary. Together, they celebrated another shared milestone—being mothers together.

“I think Katie started the trend and everyone else followed,” said Haley, 33. “We’re all a little competitive, but we all wanted to have this experience together too. And so it was one of those things where Katie got pregnant and is like, ‘God, should we all jump on the bandwagon?’ It seems the answer was yes, of course. This decision wasn’t just up to the girls; their husbands would have to agree too. But luckily, the men didn’t need much convincing. Their beautiful plan could begin.”

During the pregnancy, the sisters supported each other. As Haley and Katie had not been pregnant before, the others tried to help them as much as possible. “We have a sister thread where we talk every day, constantly, plus phone calls,” Carolyn said. “Like, ‘Are you feeling this? Are you feeling a lot of kicks? What symptoms are you experiencing?’ It’s an amazing experience you have with your sisters and best friends. It’s incredible.”

The Gaines grandparents, too, were elated by the news and couldn’t wait to see their new grandchildren. They spent the months leading up to the babies’ arrival shopping and bought everything a toddler could want, from the big swing to toys and cots. The Gaines sisters are looking forward to seeing their children grow up as close as they were. Talking about their family, Carolyn said, “We are a pretty traditional family. We spend Christmas together.

We spend Thanksgiving and every birthday together.” However, as close as the sisters are, they would never have imagined that they would one day bring children into the world just months apart. Katie’s baby boy was born on April 2nd, while Amy was due on June 11th. That birth would be followed by Haley’s on July 5th, and Carolyn was expected to give birth around July 25th. The girls’ Instagram has garnered over a thousand followers. Unfortunately, no further updates have been shared, so we hope all is well with them.

Nine labor nurses—sisters who work together stay together, but can the same be said for co-workers? It seems the answer is yes. These nine women are from Maine, USA. They all worked as midwives at the same hospital, Maine Medical Center. Nothing too unusual, you might say, until you see this photo. The caption reads, “How’s this for a baby boom? Nine of our nurses, eight of whom are in this photo, are expecting babies between April and July. Congratulations!”

In the picture, the mothers-to-be proudly show off their bellies, one of which is already a little bigger than the others. They can be seen smiling and dressed in their hospital attire of trousers and matching gray t-shirts. They hold up colored paper signs with their due dates. Although the new moms were already friends, this experience of being pregnant together made their relationship even stronger.

“We communicate daily, even if it’s at 3 a.m.,” says Lonnie Sosi, one of the nine mothers. Then began the unprecedented baby boom at the hospital. Although the delivery wing of the hospital was, of course, used to many births, all the babies coming from its staff were really special. The babies started arriving in April, and the boom continued until the last baby arrived in July.

Mother Lonnie said the team plans to have many play dates with their children, and to capture this special moment, they hired a professional photographer who took some beautiful pictures. In these photos, the babies are aged between 3 weeks and 3.5 months. One of the photos shows the nine children in a circle, wearing white onesies, and another shows all the mothers with their babies in their arms. It was clearly a very happy moment.

Although this type of baby boom is rare, it does not happen by chance. Research has shown that pregnancies can actually be contagious, as the decision to have a child can be influenced by your social network.
