Two Sisters Give Birth to Baby Girls on the Same Day

You couldn’t blame Holy Redeemer Hospital staff for thinking they were seeing double. Two sisters, originally scheduled to give birth approximately 10 days apart, ended up delivering baby daughters at Holy Redeemer Hospital within a few hours of each other on Monday, January 19.

Other factors also came into play – the timing coincided with a news cycle that included Pennsylvania Governor Wolf’s inauguration as well as President Obama’s State of the Union speech. In addition, the onset of a major winter storm threatened to close whatever window existed.

In addition, Philadelphia’s local Fox 29 news crew came out to film the happy families and the story was picked up by numerous Fox outlets across the nation. Read more.

The result: a telling profile of an exemplary Holy Redeemer home care nurse. Read more.
