In this rare photo showing the MoMo twins and their umbilical cords, one observes how tightly they were braided together—doctors were doubtful that the twins would survive. But these MoMo sisters’ entwined destinies intended for them to endure—against the odds.

Kate Lucas from Queensland, Australia, was over the moon when she learned she was expecting “Monoamniotic” twins, known as MoMo twins. But her elation turned to worry and heartache when she was informed that her baby girls would probably not survive the pregnancy due to the fact that their umbilical cords had no dividing membrane, which would starve them of oxygen.

Nevertheless, after a few scares during pregnancy, Harper and Cleo survived and were born weighing just 4 and 3 pounds respectively.

“When MoMo’s survive they are known to be the closest twins of all as they have been in physical contact since conception, they have been seen holding hands and sleeping forehead to forehead in the womb…. and then similarly once born,” Kate wrote on the Miracle Babies website.

“Some of the ultrasound pics are amazing. Two little bodies wrapped around one another in a tight cuddle……two faces looking eye to eye at one another…..we couldn’t wait to see our girls share this bond.”

At 28 weeks, Kate was admitted to hospital ahead of a cesarean section at 32 weeks.

“As we ate breakfast suddenly midwives arrived with a gown and the news 2 beds were now free and we were to deliver our babies immediately. In no time at all our 2 tiny girls were born within minutes of each other—the girls screamed as they entered the world, and continued to breathe on their own! Harper 1.9kg and Cleo 1.5kg—tiny but perfect.”

“As the cords were examined a shocked silence fell over the room. The girls had survived horrific entanglement, with a true knot at one point. We delivered them just in time…..they were truly our miracle MoMo’s.”

“After two previous singleton, natural, yoga-filled, water-birthed pregnancies and babies, this fully monitored, medically overdosed, terrifyingly uncertain pregnancy with a cesarean and long-term hospital stay. Sure (it) was a test on our marriage, our strength, our positivity, our emotions, and our ability to look beyond and into the future.”

“They are like chalk and cheese and yet they are alike in so many ways. They giggle and play all day long…and we struggle to get them to stop chattering in bed each night.”

Kate’s mission is to support other “MoMo” moms through the Miracle Babies Foundation.
