Doctors witnessed something unwanted on the screen in the 28th week. Actually they were Monoamniotic and this condition is known as "MoMo". The babies were unlikely to survive with only 60% chance of survival. Hence, the coming weeks were not easy for the parents of the babies.
The operation was a caesarean and it happened after the 32nd week. Sometime after that, Kate shared her inspiring story with everyone on a blog named "Miracle Babies". she talked about how she maintained her cool and stayed positive even after the doctor's view that babies might not survive.
The weeks were terrifying for the family as kate has to go through a lot, but her family supported her in this hard time. She also had to go through NICU and SCN for the premature babies.
