Northside Hospital - Couple finds support, healing after heartbreaking loss of twins

Couple finds support, healing after heartbreaking loss of twins

Posted on: November 19, 2019


Stacey and Joe Yeager of Atlanta have their hands full with 4-year-old Kara and 2-year-old Everett.

"Life is amazing," Stacey Yeager says. "It's busy, it's full, it's colorful."

Kara and Everett are their "rainbow" children, born after a loss.

In the Yeagers' case, the loss came suddenly, without warning.

Stacey was pregnant with twin boys they'd named Aiden and Jackson.

"Because they were twins, we knew we were high-risk," she says. "So we'd gone to many, many, many checkups."

But on the night of February 12, 2014, as Atlanta braced for a rare Southern snowstorm, Stacey, then 20 weeks pregnant started cramping.

She was going into labor.

The couple rushed to Northside Hospital, where they weren't due to deliver the twins for another 4 and a half months.
