Pregnant Sisters Due a Month Apart Go Into Labor on the Same Day

OMG 96

A pair baby bumpsof sisters in Britain were probably excited enough when they became pregnant around the same time, but I doubt they expected to give birth within a day of each other! Natalie and Rhiannon Perllman were actually due one month apart, but they must be incredibly connected, because Rhiannon went into labor mere hours after Natalie did. Isn't that wild?

Going through pregnancy and labor together seems like the ultimate sibling bonding experience, especially since these two even wound up sharing a maternity suite at the hospital. How fun is that? Doing the labor and delivery thing in a room with your sister sure beats having a random hospital roommate.

Both women had healthy and happy babies, and they are already looking forward to celebrating birthdays and milestones together as the years go on.

And these cousins will have quite a story to tell, considering how amazing it is that they were born so close together even though they should have been a month apart. Natalie delivered her twins four weeks early on March 17, while Rihannon's baby girl born on the 18th actually showed up 10 days late. If you do the math, the odds of them both going into labor at the same time are pretty slim! These little ones must have been destined to make their entrance into the world together, because this is just way too cute a story to be a mere coincidence.

Do you have any pregnant friends or family members with a due date that falls near yours?

My sister, my sister-in-law, and I all had due dates within 8 weeks of each other. My DS2 was born first, SIL's baby boy 11 days later, and sister's baby girl 6 weeks later. We all told my parents we were pregnant within days of each other - unplanned, because we were all unaware we were pregnant together until that point.
We have a really cute pic of the three of us hugely pregnant side by side.

I was due dec 21 and my SIL was due the 24th or so. We ended up having our girls exactly 4 weeks apart! Which, given I went on modified bed rest the 3rd week of Sept and my baby could have come any time, we were pretty shocked they ended up that close together! Mine was born 3 weeks early and her's was almost 2 weeks late.

My sister and I were given the same due date of 10/12. We were both admitted to the hospital within an hour of each other on 10/5 and both delivered on 10/6. Our babies were born 4.5 hours apart!

My best friend and I are due within 3 weeks of each other. It would be amazing to birth our babies on the same day!

When I was pregnant with my youngest dd, a friend of mine was due one month later with her dd. I got stuck on bed rest for the last month, then she followed suit. But they weren't born in the same month though, as expected. My dd was born towards the end April and her dd was born in the first part of May.


When I was pregnant with my youngest 2 of my cousins were due around the same time. One was due July 12, 2010, the other July 17, 2010, and then me July 22, 2010. My cousin due July 17 had her baby on July 6th at 7:55 am pst and I had my son July 6th at 10pm cst so they are 12 hours and 5 minutes apart. Our cousin had her baby July 10th which is my 4 year olds birthday.

Thats pretty cool. I was pregnant with some of my friends. At our church these were 8 babies born within a month of each other.
