Doula Robin's Monoamniotic Twins

Robin Baker, my friend, Doula client and fellow Doula, gave birth to still born twin boys yesterday morning, Wednesday, November 30, 2011.

Robin's Facebook post reads, "Today at 5:58am we greeted our sweet angel twins as they were gently born sleeping into the hands of their mommy and daddy. Elijah Barry & Henry Lee were 1.14 lbs & 1.12 lbs and beautiful as could be at 24 weeks. They were perfect in every way, and passed on to be with Jesus after becoming entangled in each others umbilical cords. We are heavy with grief but comforted by our Heavenly Father who is wise beyond our comprehension and loves us with an everlasting love. Thank you all for your love, support, and kind words and acts of service for our family ♥"

The boys were Momo twins. Knowing they were high risk, Robin planned to move into the hospital this coming Sunday so the twins could be monitored and taken via cesarean when needed. God had other plans and took them straight to heaven instead. You can read more about Robin on her website

Please consider making a donation, a one time gift, towards the expenses that include hospital, funeral, and burial for the twins. The financial burden is $5,000. I will keep you posted and will close the account when this goal is reached. You can use the link below to contribute. Also you can forward this blog to your friends or forward this link in an email.

Robin is a strong and Godly woman that I am honored to call friend. She labored long and was adamant that no one but Mommy & Daddy would catch the baby's. And so it was. Peacefully Mike and Robin Baker gave birth to their sleeping baby boy's.

Thank you for reading this, sharing it with others, and sharing with this family. An offering of your prayers or financial support, whatever you can, is greatly appreciated.

God bless you and your friends & family this Christmas and throughout the new year.

    SOOOO glad you set this up! Beautifully written. Thanks Rosie ♥

  2. Happy to Donate. I can't begin to imagine what they are going through.

  3. I too gave birth to a still born Elijah...Your story touched my soul. The healing process is long, seven years and going for me. One day your tears will come less often and when you think of your angel babies, your heart will smile. Be well.

    I am crying right now. I too know your pain. My baby Levi went to be with Jesus at 37 weeks from a "true Knot" in his cord. I know the painful journey ahead. My prayers will be with you!

    I am so saddened by this news. My heart truly breaks for them.

    My heart breaks all over again as I too know the loss. Jonathan lived only 3 short hours after birth at 27 weeks. Hugs and love to all. ~Jaimey

  7. Beautifully written and most certainly touched my heart (as Robin's initial post did too). Evan as I write this, my eyes fill with tears and I realize that each tear is a prayer said from the soul.

    A mother truly knows and feels their childrens pain throughout their lives. My heart aches for my daughter and her husband, their children and all the family members. I want to thank Rosie for all her support both at the hospital and continuing. You truly are a very loving Doula and friend. Thank you Rosie ((hugs))

    This hit me really hard since my twins are mono amniotic (now almost 7 years old - gave birth at 29 weeks) and because I was in contact with Robin from the beginning. Sending love and light. - Sheri Menelli
