DENVER — Early this month, a mother who was delivering two twin baby girls had a sweet coincidence with two labor and delivery nurses.

Lauren Meehan had a little surprise while delivering her twin girls at Rose Medical Center this month. 

Meehan said her twins decided to make an early and quick arrival in the middle of the night at the beginning of October. She said because of the high risk of delivering twins that two teams of doctors and nurses were needed. 

Right as the team of doctors and nurses were about to deliver the twins they asked Meehan if she had names picked out for the babies. Meehan said she loved the names, Emma and Julia. The group of nurses and doctors exploded in laughter. 

It turns out that the two nurses that would be taking care of the two babies were also named Emma and Julia. 

"At that moment, in all the chaos, we were able to stop for a second and enjoy that moment knowing that those names were meant to be. Those two nurses will always be special to us and the entire team that took care of us that day with hold a special place in our hearts. It will be a funny story to tell our girls," Meehan said.
