CLEVELAND – An Ohio family can look forward to annual birthday season, because their new twins were born a week apart.
Jennifer Renz of North Canton went into labor while at her doctor's office on March 22. She wasn't due for another 12 weeks but gave birth at a Cleveland hospital to a 1-pound, 13-ounce girl, named Grace.
Doctors say says at that point, things kind of stopped, with the other baby, a boy, still in the womb. They decided not to induce labor but allow the second child more time to grow inside his mother.
Little Noah didn't arrive for another seven days, weighing in at 2 pounds, 15 ounces. Both infants are now in a neonatal intensive care unit.
Their father, Dennis Renz, says he and his wife say they plan to celebrate the birthdays separately.
