Twin sisters Katie Bowden and Amy Meredith-Davies have done everything together their whole lives, but these sisters never imagined they would give birth on the same day.
Katie and Amy both gave birth on Wednesday June 10 2015, just hours before turning 30.

Amy, a health, social care and wellbeing facilitator who lives in Neath said: “We’ve done everything in our lives at similar times. Our family are used to it. We got married within a year of each other too. Katie got married in June 2012 and I was married in August 2013. I just can’t get over the fact that we fell pregnant at the same time.”
“It was bizarre because I was in labour and had a message from my mother saying Amy was being induced. It was really funny because when my mum came to visit she would tell the midwife that she now had to leave to see my twin who was also having a baby. Everyone thought it was amazing.” said Katie, a teacher from Clydach.
Katie gave birth to her daughter Ella, at 5.38am in Singleton Hospital in Swansea while Amy had her son Henry, in Bridgend’s Princess of Wales Hospital at 11.15pm the same day.
