"Our twins arrived 10 weeks early. Baylor Scott & White was ready."

For parents Rachel and Chris Caver, finding out they were expecting twins was ecstatic news. But 10 weeks before they were due, she went into labor.

Weighing less than four pounds, her babies stayed at their local Baylor Scott & White Medical Center neonatal intensive care unit. The NICU nurses put Rachel and her husband Chris at ease.

"They were very protective and very careful with the babies," she says. "Our NICU nurses became our best friends and family. One nurse even said, 'thank you for letting us care for your babies.' I couldn't have heard sweeter words."
