North Carolina’s mother, Tracey Hernandez, 33, shared incredible photos of the moment when her identical twin daughters became the second most premature babies in the world to survive 22 weeks. Hernandez went on Christmas shopping on December 8, 2019, when he started to feel uncomfortable. A few hours later, she found herself in a hospital giving birth to her twin daughters, Makenzie and Makayla, who were not supposed to enter the world until April 9, 2020. Doctors alerted Hernandez and her fiance Anthony Pope, the girls’ father, who their girls had no chance of surviving. Since birth, the girls have remained at Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina, in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The twins are not yet clear, but their parents will take them home next month. Makayla and Makenzie are not only overcoming the odds against them, but they have also made history. When they were born at 22 weeks and three days, they became the second most premature baby in the world to survive.
