Florida Mother, Daughter Give Birth on Same Day

By  | 

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- A southwest Florida woman and her daughter both gave birth at the same hospital on the same day.

Heather Penticoff and her daughter Destinee Martin each found out they were pregnant on the same day. They had the same due dates and, for separate medical reasons, doctors at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers decided to induce both of them Tuesday.

Penticoff's daughter Madeline was born first, and Destinee's son Damien was born almost three hours later.

Penticoff tells WZVN-TV that the births are "like having twins without carrying twins."
