A doctor, Kathleen Ackert, has generated massive reactions after sharing a photo of twin babies she helped deliver.
Kathleen said after her feat, she mailed the photo to the doctor, Jonathan Herman, who delivered her 26 years ago, telling him that "a baby you delivered is now delivering babies."
Amazed by the email, Jonathan searched for her contacts on the internet and was able to reach her as they talked on the phone for almost an hour.
Many people found the story an amazing one and were in her comment section to share similar experiences they had in the past.
See her post below:
At the time of writing this report, the photo of her and the twins have been liked over 60,000 times with close to 4,000 retweets.
Briefly.co.za compiled some of the reactions below:
"Do you know who delivered my grandfather? Ernest Hemingway’s dad. I have the signed birth certificate too."
"I took a law school class from a professor in 1999 who taught both my parents in 1974, and then was colleagues with my dad in 1979, and shared a last name with all of us though we are not related. It was pretty wild. And my maiden name is not Irzyk."
"Not nearly as cool, but by a neat twist of fate, the same amazing Perinatologist delivered my youngest sibling, and 18 years later, delivered my youngest child."
"I love this story! My daughter had a similar incident. She is a veterinarian. One day a family comes in with their dog and my daughter recognizes the name. My daughter asks if she is a pediatrician and she replied yes. My daughter was now treating her former pediatrician's dog."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a woman in the US, Folashade, had every reason to rejoice after she gave birth to twins at a time she was not expecting it at all.
On the day before she gave birth, the Nigerian had only gone to the hospital to carry out a routine check as she was 37 weeks gone.
After a doctor in the medical facility, Lightfoote, saw her condition of swollen feet and that her blood was unexpectedly higher, she had to tell her the babies would need to be delivered the following day.
