 Identical Twins Holding Each Otherís Hands Born in Ohio

A middle school teacher in Ohio gave birth to identical twins born under a very rare condition, with the twins holding each other's hands as the doctors brought them to the new parents.

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.

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."
