Sarah Thistlethwaite, 32, gave birth to monoamniotic identical twins, where in the twins share the same amniotic sac and placenta. Such births are very rare, accounting for just one percent of all twin pregnancies.

The sisters, named Jillian and Jenna, were born 33 days premature and will spend up to four weeks in the nursery at the Akron Children's Hospital. Stating that it was amazing to see her daughters holding hands, Sarah said, "They're already best friends. I can't believe they were holding hands. That's amazing."
