Just as most pregnant couples do, Rosemarie and Faye Marzinotto did the whole ‘baby thing’ – went shopping for bassinets, baby blankets, announcement cards, postings on Facebook, the works. It was an exciting time – and their ‘expectant’ extended family members were full of joy and anticipation, especially when the pair divulged that Faye was carrying twins. Doctors estimated the babies would make their entrance to the world on July 16, 2015, but one night at the end of March, Faye knew something was very, very wrong. And from there, the family embarked on a rollercoaster ride that would have mammoth consequences.
“Faye hadn’t been feeling well – and I chalked it up to pregnancy,” Rose said. “But later in the middle of the night, Faye began to rupture – putting both her and the babies in an emergency situation.”
