Twins Defied The Odds To Be Born At Just 22 Weeks And Are The World’s Earliest Twins

At the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Toronto, Ontario, Adiah and Adrial Nadarajah were born 126 days early. They weigh 1.6 pounds in total. (750 grams). According to the doctors, they wouldn’t have attempted to preserve the twins if they had been born one hour earlier. The two infants, who are now one year old and living at home in Ontario, hold the record for being the youngest preterm twins ever born. Parents claim that although Adiah babbles and like to be held while walking, Adrial tends to be sullen.

They beat the previous record-holders, twins born 125 days early in Iowa in 2015. Typically, a full-term pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. At 21 weeks and 5 days pregnant, Shakina Rajendram’s mother reported going into labor and going through intense discomfort, blood, and contractions. She was rushed to the hospital, where the staff briefly examined her before stating that the children had “zero chance” of surviving and “couldn’t survive.” However, the parents begged doctors for assistance after an ultrasound revealed the twins were still “very alive,” with strong heartbeats and no pain.

They were moved to Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital, which can care for infants as young as 22 weeks. Even though Mrs. Rajendram was having contractions every five minutes, doctors advised her to “hold them off” until she reached the 22-week mark because they couldn’t help if she delivered the baby earlier. On March 4, 2022, just after midnight, Rajendram reported feeling like her water had broken. On that day, Adiah was born at 1:22 a.m. and was 0.72 pounds. (330 grams). At 1:45 a.m., her brother Adrial arrived, weighing 0.93 lbs. (420grams).

According to studies, there is a 28% probability that a baby born at 22 weeks would survive. The risk increases to 55% among babies who are born more than a week later. Curtis Means, an Alabama native who was born at 21 weeks and one day, was the tiniest infant to ever live. Both infants were identified as having brain hemorrhages soon after birth. Third grade Adrial’s is more severe. Along with sepsis, Adrial had lung, kidney, and other health issues. They were subsequently allowed to leave the hospital after spending the following six months there under medical monitoring.

Speaking of the births, Ms Rajendram said: ‘Amidst all the situations where it’s been reported that the chances of survival are close to zero, the chances of disability and serious disability are so high, we just hang on. take your hope and faith. , trust in God.’ This is also her second pregnancy, after she lost her first child a few months earlier. But now you are ‘doing great’.
