 A woman gave birth to a very special pair of twin girls and one of them has Down Syndrome

When Nicola and Todd Bailey tried to conceive their second child, they had no idea that they would soon become the parents of a very special pair of twins.

After 12 weeks of pregnancy, the doctors revealed to the couple that Nicola was having twins, but nothing more. On the other hand, the ultrasound had not revealed any sort of anomaly.

Nevertheless, Nicola Bailey had suspected something and had already considered the possibility that she might be experiencing a multiple-birth pregnancy.

Especially, because as she said her belly, "had grown much faster when compared with her first pregnancy and the symptoms were stronger".

However, other than that, Nicola Bailey did not have any reason to worry about anything until her waters broke after 32 weeks, and she gave birth to a splendid pair of twin girls.

The first to be born was Harper, while her twin sister Quinn arrived shortly thereafter.

The doctors quickly had the newborn twins undergo the routine tests and when they returned to the mother's hospital room, they gave the news to the family: Harper, the firstborn twin, had Down's Syndrome.


At first, Nicola did not understand why the doctor said "I am sorry" as if he were giving her bad news. Of course, for her, both twins were beautiful.

Moreover, the mother of the little twin girls has revealed that, since they were born, both have immediately shared a very special bond which is often observed in twins.

Of course, as their mother, she tries not to compare them because she knows very well that they are two different people and not only because of Harper's genetic disorder.

Nicola has also reported that their situation sometimes attracts negative comments from ignorant people, who do not always respect Harper's "diversity".

In any case, Nicola does everything she can to educate and inform people, especially through her social media account.

Additionally, moreover, Harper was born with a heart problem, so she will have to undergo an operation when she is six years old.

Notwithstanding all the challenges and difficulties they face, Nicola and Todd and their children are a happy family.

We wish them all the best!
