Tara Drinkard and Tori Howard were ecstatic when they heard the fantastic news that they would be working on the same procedure together. Not only was it special for them, but for the parents, who were also scared for their babies' lives.

Identical twins Tara Drinkard and Tori Howard don't only share the same DNA but similar passions, with both of them working in the medical field. Talking about what it's like to have a sibling born on the same day as you, both expressed:

“You always have a friend and someone next to you but don’t be afraid to branch out and find out who you are individually, too.”

THE SAME YET DIFFERENT

In 2019, it was reported that the then-26-year-olds were working at the same hospital side by side. This medical facility, Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center in Georgia, is also where Drinkard and Howard were born.

These two sisters do work at the same hospital and are both involved in taking care of babies. However, they are not in the exact same vocation.

Drinkard works in labor and delivery while Howard is a NICU nurse. This means that the duo had never worked in the same room together.

However, that all changed one day when Becca and Brannan Williams came rolling in with Becca. The couple was ready for the birth of their newborn identical twins.

COMING TOGETHER

On this day, the pair were allowed in the delivery room together. Drinkard broke the exciting news to her sibling while in the hallway. Eagerly speaking to the upcoming parents, this twin revealed:

“I said, 'Guess what? I have something to tell you'...My sister is a twin and we are both going to be in your delivery.'”

Becca and Brannan were overjoyed to hear this news. Brannan expressed that it was great because he and his wife could ask them questions about twinhood.

TWO TINY REFLECTIONS

Drinkard and Howard were permitted in the delivery room because the babies were born earlier via c-section. This means they were at higher risk, and so a NICU nurse had to be present.

Howard had to look after the one newborn in NICU, but luckily both ended up alive and healthy. The identical babies Addison and Emma were born 3 minutes apart on September 25, 2019.

They were scheduled to leave the hospital on October 17, 2019. Hopefully, one day, their parents will tell them about their beautiful birth story and the twins that helped deliver and save them.
