The triumphant story of twin babies still thriving a year after they were born just minutes into what doctors deem “a viable state” is happy news indeed.
Speaking to the mother Shakina Rajendram about her then-harrowing-now-hopeful story, she recounted going into labor at 21 weeks and 5 days during pregnancy, a gestational marker that the medical community deems “not viable.” Her heart shattered as she heard that her two darling babies would receive no rescuscitation, only to be delivered to die on her chest.

It was really a shock, at first, you know; we didn’t know how to process that information, as we had, like I mentioned earlier, we lost another baby in the same location a few months before that,” Rajendram told the Register. “So it was just really overwhelming at that point.
