The human body is a marvellous thing that can adjust and expand, shrink down and change to suit just about any situation. That's why pregnancy is simply amazing. Organs shift, skin expands and then a woman is able to birth a live human being.

That may sound incredible enough, but the female body can endure so much more, such as multiple babies.

A week after her boys were born, Natalie shared her birth story. Take a look at the very sweet compilation she created consisting of short videos and photo snaps of the day her babies were born.

Natalie also shared her amazing story in a longer video where she describes how her birth took a turn for the unexpected after she gave birth naturally to her first baby. Due to a few complications, Natalie had to have a C-section in order to deliver her second little boy. 

While some may have been disappointed with this turn of events, Natalie was just too happy to have her babies healthy and whole. The video may seem long, but if you're a mom expecting twins (or more) then her story is encouraging and beautiful. Definitely be sure to give it a watch.
