Florida woman gives birth to rare set of identical twins with Down syndrome

The birth of twins is a relatively rare occurrence, with approximately 33 out of every 1,000 births resulting in twins. Additionally, identical twins are even rarer, occurring in only three to four out of every 1,000 births.
When 23-year-old Savannah Combs discovered she was pregnant with twins, she was overjoyed. However, she soon learned that her twin daughters would be born with Down syndrome, a condition that caused concern for some individuals who may judge her and her babies based on their condition.

 

 

 

 

 

Despite this, Savannah believes her daughters, Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman, are incredibly precious. Savannah shared her pregnancy journey with her daughters on TikTok, where they quickly gained a following. In one of her videos, Savannah shared that she was advised to abort her babies because they would not survive, but she decided to give them a fighting chance.

Savannah’s husband was away at boot camp when she learned that both of her twins had Down syndrome. She was 29 weeks pregnant when she was admitted to the hospital and delivered her daughters. The twins were born on May 12, 2021, two months before their due date, so they had to spend several weeks in the NICU before coming home.
