- Amanda Dorris gave birth to twins in record time after being in labour for nine hours
- The labour was induced after doctors became concerned over the health of the babies
- The birth beat the old record by over half a minute earning it a place in the Guinness World Records
The Guinness World Record book is overflowing with interesting information and every conceivable record that could be imagined.
New records get made and broken every day and continue to fill the glossy pages. An expecting mom broke a record with such speed that it left people stunned.
Briefly.co.za learned that Amanda Dorris gave birth to twins in 22.2976 seconds, faster than that anyone had expected. This was after 9 hours of labour which had been induced by the doctors who were concerned for the babies health according to liftable.com.
“She just came flying out,” said Amanda Dorris. Élodie was born so quickly the doctors didn't even have time to clamp the umbilical cord.
“The doctor had no word to explain it. He was just as shocked as anyone else,” explained Dorris. Both babies were small but healthy.
The labour was induced at 35 weeks after the doctors realised that the babies had stopped growing. Dorris was admitted to the Gatineau Hospital in Canada and was under close observation as the delivery was considered high risk.
The birth was recorded and Dorris's mother thought that the speed at which the babies popped out must be some kind of record.
She was right, the quickest twin birth recorded at one minute and Dorris knew she had beaten it and had the evidence to prove it.
