Twin sisters give birth at same time


Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers

Being close with your sibling is something sacred, sometimes your moments in life are shared together. The bond that twins have is a special thing, most people simply cannot understand it. Often they can read one another s thoughts and even share the same interests. The odds of sisters giving birth at the same time are very low something around 1000-1. Factor in that these two women are identical twins and it gets even more rare try 400,000 to 1 odds.

Identical twins equate to about 3.5 out of 1000 births statistically. The birth rate of twins has not really changed over the past few decades in the United States. Comparing to a worldwide statistic anywhere between 12-16 people would have twins out of 1000 births.

Twin sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers recently gave birth and were on the same page literally and their babies were too. The sisters both age 35 gave birth to their first child on Thursday. Both babies were born ironically at the exact same time—however they were in different time zones.

Leah lives in Denver, Colorado and Sarah lives in La Jolla, California. Both babies were then born (in their time zone) at 1:18 am. Leah named her baby Reid Joseph and Sarah named her baby Samantha Lynne. Sarah mentioned “It’s that magical twin connection I suppose”.

She also mentioned that both women didn’t plan on being pregnant at the same time. However, their journey in life together binds them as they seemingly have a special bond together. It is difficult for her to further explain but there is certainly some kind of cosmic connection between the sisters.

When the sisters announced that they were pregnant it was during a Thanksgiving family gathering. The announcement was humorous as both sisters knew each of them were pregnant just by looking at one another. They laughed and giggled together. Everyone was in shock from the news that evening. Both sisters mentioned that they can’t wait for their babies to grow up together.

Both families together

People say everyone has a doppelganger out there somewhere, someone who looks very identical to you. Anyone would do a double take if they noticed someone who looks just like them wander by. Sometimes people can share certain characteristics and even act the same. Couples who have been married even can start to think alike sometimes. They even know what the other is thinking in certain moments.
