Doctors and nurses at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha have been busy over the past few weeks. Dr. Ann Anderson-Berry is a physician in their NIC-U unit and says matter of fact they have been seeing double.
Dr. Anderson-Berry says caring for seven sets of twins at the same time is a record for their unit. One of their biggest challenges has been finding enough rooms so each set can stay together.
Jaci Pohl from Kearney is the proud mother of twin girls being cared for at Nebraska Medicine. She was airlifted to Nebraska Medicine last November and delivered her daughters on the 19th. Her daughter Dylan weighed 1 pound -10 ounces when she was born and her daughter Sidney 2 pounds-8 ounces. Today, Sidney weighs 7 pounds 6 ounces and Dylan is 4 pounds 10 ounces. She says her daughters have come a long way and will soon be ready to go home for the first time.
Pohl says it was nice getting to know other parents of twins at Nebraska Medicine’s NIC-U unit and they would often spend time comparing notes on their twin’s progress.
