The REAL Christmas miracles
Andrea approached Tell and Sell Stories wanting to share the story of her amazing twin babies Emme and Devyn. And she was just in time to take part in a Christmas miracle baby feature in The Sun.
Heartbreakingly, the twins were left fighting for their lives after they were born prematurely in December 2014.
It started when Andrea was 36 weeks pregnant and began bleeding heavily. One of her twin's placenta had ruptured so she was rushed to hospital where she had an emergency C-section.
Emme, whose placenta had ruptured, was born first, quickly followed by her brother Devyn - who had to be put in an incubator and was given oxygen.
Thankfully, just days later they were all allowed home. They enjoyed a good few weeks but when the twins were three weeks old, Andrea found Emme grey and unresponsive.
By the time paramedics arrived she was hardly breathing. At hospital, she was diagnosed with viral bronchiolitis. Shockingly, Andrea was told that had they arrived just minutes later, her daughter might have died.
Andrea and her husband Mark were told Devyn had the virus too and he was given oxygen. Finally, after a week in hospital, Emme and Devyn started to recover and breathe on their own again.
The twins were eventually allowed home. Last Christmas was a blur but Andrea and Mark made Christmas extra special for the twins and their son Cole this year. We wish them all the very best for 2016.
