Megan and Lauren Johnson have always been close. Well, it’s hard not to be when you’re identical twins born just four minutes apart.
Over the past 38 years, they’ve shared everything and experienced and supported each other through life’s highs and lows, including cancer, serious surgery and going through IVF at the same time.
But while their DNA might almost be identical, their IVF experiences couldn’t have been more different.
While Lauren fell pregnant first round with daughter Freya and then again the second round with son Finn, it took younger twin Megan eight rounds, a new doctor and more aggressive drug protocols until she held her daughter Audrey in her arms.
"She found out she wasn't pregnant and then two weeks later I found out I was [with Finn]. That was really difficult for both of us," Lauren tells Mamamia.
