Text:Although they hadn't planned it, Emily and Kate got pregnant within weeks of each other through artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, respectively. Their sons were born within four days of each other, and the couple embraced the challenge of raising the two babies at once. Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, USA, 2015 Kate often kept Emily company while she took baths. Late in the pregnancy, particularly once Emily was overdue, she said that baths were one of the easiest ways to relax her body. Kate, who became pregnant three weeks later than Emily, showed less, and the two would often compare their baby bumps and talk to each other’s bellies. Maplewood, New Jersey, USA, 29 November 2015.   Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, USA, 2015 Emily watches as the nurses work to get Eddie to wake up and cry. The baby didn't cry immediately after being born, as his umbilical cord was tight and he was born "in distress”. "It was one of the scariest moments of my life," Emily said later. New York, New York, USA, 13 December 2015. Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, USA, 2015 Emily holds the new-born baby to meet his new little brother. Reid and Eddie were born only four days apart, despite being due three weeks apart. Both babies had the same donor, making them biological half-brothers. “Oh my God,” Kate said, “we’re…like…a family, suddenly!” New York, New York, USA, 13 December 2015. Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, USA, 2015 Emily rubs sleep out of her eyes while feeding Reid, as Kate holds Eddie during a late-night feeding. Maplewood, New Jersey, USA, 30 December 2015.
