AUBURN, Ind. — Nicole Cramer had little idea when she went to the hospital to see her twin sister’s newborn son that within hours, she would give birth to a son of her own.

Her sister, Naomi Sale, had scheduled a Caesarean section on Tuesday morning and gave birth to Ethan Alexander at 8:29 a.m. Cramer, also nine months pregnant, visited Sale and her new nephew in the hospital but was having contractions and didn’t stay long.

“I thought, after I did the C-section, on my way home, ‘I wonder if her sister would go into labor?’” said Dr. Thaddeus Weghorst, the obstetrician for both women.

Within hours, Cramer was in the delivery room of DeKalb Memorial Hospital.

After 90 minutes of labor, Cramer delivered Carter Nathaniel Birchfield.

“This solidifies the theory on the bond between twins,” Weghorst said. “Even their uteri have a bond.”
