Miracle ” Twins Born Was Born Early ” Surprise Changing Five Months Later

When Katy was born early labour at 24 weeks pregnant just after seeing in the New Year, doctors said she would have to keep her babies in for as long as possible because before 26 weeks it was unlikely they would live, have both faced alost of  challenges  to live.

They  were born so early doctors said  they had just a two per cent chance to live. Gold bless “miracle twins” Jackson and Harley Lambert growing up and having defied the odds and are now five months old.

The twin pair  was born six days after the ᴀʙᴏʀᴛɪᴏɴ limit, at 24 weeks. They were so tiny each one weighted a doll,  that mum Katy’s labour easy was over in less than a minute as her babies were born at the same time. Between them, the pair who each weighed no more than an iPad. They have had to under go 19 ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ trans-fution and sereral ops ᴏᴘs in their first few months of life.

Katy, 20, is now hoping to bring her babies back to their home. She said: “It has not been easy an easy road but I am so proud of how far the twins have come. It has been a living ʜᴇʟʟ watching them hooked up to ᴠᴇɴᴛɪʟᴀᴛᴏʀs ᴀɴᴅ Fᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ ᴛᴜʙᴇs and going through all their sᴜʀɢᴇʀɪᴇs ᴀɴᴅ ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ᴛʀᴀɴsFᴜsɪᴏɴs. But they have Fᴏᴜɢʜᴛ every step of the way. We’ve still got a little way to go before they can come home but there is actually light at the end of the tunnel. I never thought I would even get to think about that day.”

But she refused to ɢɪᴠᴇ ᴜᴘ ʜᴏᴘᴇ. she talk a bout her pregnancy journeys at 24 weeks.

After sᴜFFᴇʀɪɴɢ ᴄʀᴀᴍᴘs ᴀɴᴅ ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ sʜᴇ ɪɴɪᴛɪᴀʟʟʏ went to Northampton General, before being rushed to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. It was there, on January 3 at 24 weeks and six days pregnant, she delivered the twins naturally. Once they arrived in the world, the first baby is Harley, who weight 1lb 11 oz and the second baby is her brother Jackson, who weighed 1lb 14oz, were taken to neonatal intensive care.Jackson was nine days old when he had to have ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ to fit a stoma bag, because his bowels weren’t working. And at 11 days his sister Harley had to have Fʟᴜɪᴅ ᴅʀᴀɪɴᴇᴅ Fʀᴏᴍ ʜᴇʀ ʙʀᴀɪɴ. Mum Katy said she wouldn’t have made it through the ʀᴏʟʟᴇʀᴄᴏᴀsᴛᴇʀ ʀɪᴅᴇ ᴡɪᴛʜᴏᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴇ “ᴀᴍᴀᴢɪɴɢ” ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀʟ ᴛᴇᴀᴍ, ᴀɴᴅ ɴᴇᴏɴᴀᴛᴀʟ sᴜʀɢᴇᴏɴ.

While the twins are still being monitored in hospital, Jackson has had his stoma reversed, is off the ventilator and is being bottle fed.And Harley has recovered from a second op to fit a shunt to relieve the ᴘʀᴇssᴜʀᴇ ᴏɴ ʜᴇʀ sᴋᴜʟʟ. Katy split up with the twins’ dad, and said she doesn’t have much family support so felt alone.

“It has been so hard but they have done incredibly and watching them Fɪɢʜᴛ and be so strong has made me stronger. I am completely in love with them.”
