Some things are just meant to be. It’s almost as if sometimes, the stars align and cool things just happen. Such was the case for a Denver mom who recently welcomed twin girls.
Lauren Meehan delivered her daughters at the Rose Medical Center, a familiar location as she had her first child there about two years before.
Lauren said her family had already experienced a surprise when they found out they were having twins. But the surprises kept coming in October as her daughters decided to arrive on their own time and sooner than expected. This meant her delivery would happen in an operating room, but she says she was in good hands.
“While I knew why everyone had to move quickly, I always had a nurse by my side explaining everything and holding my hand,” Lauren said.
Lauren said that all of the nurses caring for her took turns tending to her as they understood the overwhelming experience she was going through with a non-traditional delivery. To keep up conversation, the team asked her if she had any names chosen for her daughters.
The reaction to this question was just… priceless.
“We told the room that we loved the names Emma and Julia,” Lauren said. “The room all broke out in laughter as the two nurses that would be taking care of my babies were both named Emma and Julia!”
What are the odds of that happening? Lauren said that after the moment they realized this cool coincidence, they were able to take a pause and reflect on the destined experience.
“At that moment, in all the chaos, we were able to stop for a second and enjoy that moment knowing that those names were meant to be,” she continued.
The birth of these girls and the nurses that would care for them and their mom was indeed meant to be. While every birth experience is different and memorable for so many reasons, this is a story that will stay with this family and team of nurses forever.
“Those two nurses will always be special to us and the entire team that took care of us that day will hold a special place in our hearts,” Lauren said. “It will be a funny story to tell our girls!”
