Twins who were born a week apart will have separate birthdays, their Ohio parents say.

Jennifer Renz went into labour 12 weeks early on March 22 and gave birth to a 1-pound, 13-ounce girl named Grace. Doctors said the labour process stopped with a baby boy still in the womb, the Associated Press reported.

Instead of inducing labour, the doctors decided to allow the boy more time to grow in his mother's womb. Noah arrived seven days later, weighing 2 pounds, 15 ounces.

The twins were in the neonatal intensive care unit at a Cleveland hospital, the AP reported. - (HealthDay News, April 2010)
