Twins from Iowa, USA, who were born four and a half months (18 weeks) earlier than the expected date of birth and were registered in the Guinness World Records as “The world’s most premature twins”, will be released on November 24th.
Celebrated his second birthday. The twin mothers responded to interviews such as “USA TODAY” and “Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier”, saying, “If the growth of these children becomes the hope of a family born equally small …”.
On November 24, 2018, identical twins Kambry and Keeley Ewoldt were born at the University of Iowa’s Steaded Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa, USA.
The two were born when their mother, Jade, was 22 weeks and 1 day (155 days) pregnant, Cambry weighed 379 grams, Keeley weighed 490 grams and was only about a dollar bill.
Jonathan Klein, director of the neonatal care unit at the hospital, said, “In the United States, the survival rate of babies born at 22 weeks gestation is only 14%.” Told.
“At birth, the two had poorly formed eyelids and their skin was delicate enough to tear to the touch. After birth, Cambry’s weight dropped to 330 grams, and Keeley had heart surgery.
However, both of them managed to recover. At that time, in the neonatal intensive care unit, we continued to monitor with minimal light and sound so as not to interfere with the development of their brains, about 5 I was discharged a month later.
We are proud of our medical team to overcome the difficulties. ” In fact, Jade said at the 16th week of pregnancy, “Twins in the abdomen are dangerous because of the twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS)’ caused by having only one placenta.” Was announced.
He had surgery to treat TTTS at 17 weeks gestation. It is not uncommon for a TTTS fetus to die before birth because without surgery the fetus’s life is at stake.
“In most cases, a baby will be born within 10 weeks after undergoing this surgery, and in the case of Jade, the delivery was about a month after the surgery,” said Dr. Klein.
After the twins were born, Jade said that he spent two hours going back and forth between the hospital and his home every day. “While they were in the hospital, I was so sad and anxious that I couldn’t take them home. It was full. Still, my eldest son Koy (7) and my eldest daughter Collins (5) were waiting at home, and they were in contact with each other with their heads switched. I think I’ve come. ”
However, not everything went smoothly after discharge, and the two lacked oxygen administration by nasal cannula (tube under the nose) due to bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), which is one of the chronic lung diseases. I couldn’t. In addition, even a slight cold often becomes severe, and he was hospitalized six times last year.
Still, in early November, the two were released from oxygen for the first time in their lives. According to physical measurements three weeks before his birthday, Cambry is about 79 cm tall and weighs 8.5 kg, and Keely is about 80 cm tall and weighs 8.6 kg.
This is just below the 2-year-old average, but the two seem to be definitely bigger.
Regarding the two who turned two years old on the 24th, Jade said, “Crumbly is rather boyish and Naughty, Keeley is very girlish, and their personalities are completely different. Both of them are from” Baby Shark “. He loves singing and dancing, and seems to be good at drawing. It’s also helpful that his brother and sister take good care of them, “he continued.
“We are proud that they have overcome various difficulties and are now two years old. Their growth will be the hope of children born as very low birth weight infants as well. I hope that. “
