2/22/22: Double blessing for family

Stanford Children’s Health maternity unit is seeing double “Twosday”!

Twins Mihika and Mishika Adlakha were born on Feb. 22, 2022, at Stanford Children’s Health – Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at 8:44 a.m and 8:45 a.m.

The girls, who are one week early, are both “happy and healthy bundle of joys” to the first-time parents. Their names mean, ‘beautiful and precious gifts from God’.

The date their daughters were born is extra special for parents Prachi Adlakha and Rahul Taneja because it happened on the unique palindromic date of 2/22/22 – since the date reads the same backwards and forwards.

“I am generally bad with numbers, but these are a set of numbers that I will always remember,” said the twins dad, Rahul Taneja. “This is literally a once-in-a-lifetime day for my family.”

There were at total of 15 deliveries, including the set of twins delivered on this rare ‘Twosday’. On average, the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford delivers 4,500 babies each year, that’s nearly a dozen babies a day.

Other twin deliveries were reported across the country on Tuesday, including in Florida, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Texas and Pennsylvania.
