Oh, Baby, Baby: Woman Gives Birth Twice in One Week

Filed under: Twins, Triplets, Multiples, In The News


Usually, twins are born mere minutes -- or even seconds -- apart. In the case of one Ohio woman, however, her babies were delivered an entire week apart.

PRODUCTION PLAYER! DO NOT DELETE.


In what is called a delayed interval delivery, Jennifer Franz went into labor and gave birth to her daughter, Grace, who weighed 1 pound, 13 ounces, at 28 weeks, "The Early Show" reports. Instead of delivering the other baby, the doctors told Franz they were going to try to see how long they could delay his birth. Seven days later, Franz went into labor again and gave birth to Noah, who weighed 2 pounds, 15 ounces.

Franz says both babies are doing well. As for Mom, next month she deserves a helluva Mother's Day gift.
