Twin nurses at a Georgia hospital are seeing double.

Identical twins Tara Drinkard and Toni Howard work at the same hospital, Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center, in Georgia. Drinkard serves in the NICU and Drinkard is a labor and delivery nurse. 

But the sisters had never helped deliver a baby together until recently, when Rebecca Williams, pregnant with twins, needed a cesarean section delivery. 

Drinkard went in search of her sister after learning they both had been assigned to assist in the surgery. "I saw her in the hallway and said, 'We're having a twin delivery,''' Drinkard told WXIA-TV .

The 26-year-old sisters were also born in the hospital where they work. 

"I was excited to go to a delivery with my sister, but didn't really cross my mind — we're twins and they're twins," Howard told "Good Morning America."

Also like the nurses, the baby girls are identical twins. Addison and Emma arrived early at 32 weeks, and weighted in at 4 pounds, 4 ounces and 4 pounds, 9 ounces. They are scheduled to be released from the NICU on Thursday.

"It's a pretty cool experience having them in there and being able to ask them questions," dad Brannan Williams said of the twin nurses.
