Sydney and Serena Lazarus were born April 8 in Anguilla, where their parents were attending a wedding. Angela Lazarus’ doctors had approved her travel even though she was 27 weeks pregnant with twins.

While on the island, Lazarus went into early labor. Neither twin’s lungs were fully developed.

About 22 hours after they were born, the twins were airlifted to Jackson’s Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami. Jackson officials sent two planes equipped with critical care units to transport the babies.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Angela Lazarus said her twins were “doing well because of the care they received” and thanked the team of doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists.
