Going Baby On Baby? Nursing Student Helps Deliver Twins
LONGWOOD MEDICAL AREA — Anna Dababski (CSON ’22), a junior on clinical rotation with the OB/GYN department of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, played a crucial role last Thursday in aiding a mother through the birth of her first born baby. As it turned out, however, there was another one pulling up hot on its heels.
Dababski, whose past clinical assignments have included geriatric and emergency wards, said the experience was illuminating, though at first a little jarring.
“It was like déjà vu,” said Anna, an infant once herself. “The first delivery went great, and then, as we’re packing up and getting ready to go, this whole other baby is all like, ‘Uhmmmmm, hello????’”
According to Dababski, the twins’ mother had not only declined to know the gender of her baby, but had, in fact, never been told she was carrying more than one. This, witnesses said, was difficult to process.
“We thought she was playing a trick, like a magic trick,” said Dr. Bahbi, the OB/GYN present at the delivery. “The second baby looked identical to the first one, so we thought she was just having a laugh with us. She wasn’t really laughing, though; she was actually in labor.”
“Oh Lord, Jetson made another one,” said the mother’s partner, DaBaby.
At press time, the parents of the twins were said to be discussing a variety of names for their two newborns, including, but not limited to: DaJunior, DaProgeny, and DaNenonate.
