Having twins is a pretty rare thing unless you have been assisted by a fertility clinic, they only happen about once in every one thousand pregnancies. But could you imagine having two sets of twins? The odds of that happening are literally off the charts, but for one California couple, it just means more loving to go around. You are going to be amazed when you watch this delivery video.
Like most couples, Weston and Erica decided they were ready to start a family. Their first child was a healthy girl, and three years later they were overjoyed to discover that they were having twins; a boy and a girl.
Four years later, they found out that Erica was again pregnant, and again, expecting twins. This time, they decided to keep the babies’ genders a surprise.
This video shows the moment that Erica is headed to the hospital to deliver the new twins. At thirty eight weeks, her medical team decided to induce labor.
During their commute to the hospital, Weston wanted to make sure that there was a complete record of the blessed event for posterity, so he started shooting with his smart phone. The two were able to capture virtually every important phase, from the trip to the hospital all the way through to the twins’ birth. He came prepared with all the latest digital recording technology, from laptops and tablets to a gopro camera. While it was never nominated for any awards, his film managed to capture all the drama and wonder of childbirth for the family to relive forever.
