They learned of the serendipitous event just moments before entering the delivery room. It also marked the first time the two were in the delivery room together as nurses, Piedmont Healthcare said on Facebook.
Howard is an NICU nurse at the facility while Drinkard is a labor and delivery nurse.
"For every c-section that labor and delivery does, we have one NICU nurse that goes because c-sections are higher risk," Howard explained to “Good Morning America.”
"I was excited to go to delivery with my sister but it didn't really cross my mind — we're twins and they're twins," she added.
The sisters were born at the same hospital where they now work.

The twin babies were born within minutes of each other. The first, Addison, arrived at 12:42 p.m.
