At the age of 19, Claire Evans was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). She was then put on a strict regime of medications in order to lessen the symptoms of her disease. Although she was able to have a normal life with her husband and her son, she had a relapse and the right side of her body was paralyzed. She though she would never be able to recover again. Because of her condition, they didn’t plan to have any more children.
However, everything changed one night in September 2005. Claire was suddenly awakened by excruciating pain. She then went to the toilet and had what she thought was labor pains. A baby came out on as she screamed for her husband Paul. And it did not end there, while Claire was holding her baby, she felt another urge to push, and it was the second baby.
After Claire gave birth to the twins, Paul brought them to the hospital and things started changing for Claire. She started feeling a tingling sensation on her legs and was able to walk just a few days after that incident. She thought it was a miracle as everything came back within a week after giving birth to the twins.
A few days later my leg started tingling and I could walk round the room. Then my eye started getting better. It cleared and I could focus. Everything just came back within one week of the birth.
Within weeks, Claire was able to drive again and go out with her friends.
