Adiah and Adrial are the smallest twins ever born, weighing a combined 750 g (1.65 lb). Adiah, the smaller of the two, weighed just 330 g (0.72 lb) when she was born 23 minutes before her brother, Adrial, who weighed 420 g (0.92 lb).
The babies were born prematurely at just 24 weeks gestation at the San Antonio Military Medical Center in Texas. They were born to proud parents, David and Ashley, who had been expecting twins.
The twins were born via cesarean section and immediately transferred to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The medical team was amazed at how well the babies were doing, considering their size. They were able to breathe on their own and were able to move their limbs.
The twins spent the next two months in the NICU, where they were monitored closely and given round-the-clock care. They were fed through a tube and received oxygen and other treatments to help them grow.
After two months, the twins were able to go home with their parents. They were still very small, but they were healthy and growing.
Adiah and Adrial are an inspiration to all premature babies and their families. Their story is a testament to the power of modern medicine and the dedication of the medical team who cared for them.
The smallest twins ever born, Adiah and Adrial, are a reminder that even the smallest of babies can survive and thrive with the right care.
