Two sisters have shared a special moment, giving birth 15 minutes apart.

A video shows the excited doctors and nurses at the hospital as sisters Corey Struve Talbott and Katie Struve Morgan gave birth moments apart.

Katie was already at the hospital and had been in labor for 15 hours when Corey, who was waiting for her scheduled c-section date, turned up to photograph her sister’s happy moment.

To everyone’s surprise, she went into labour, deciding to go ahead with her c-section.

Corey told USA Today: “Dr. Laughlin was just two minutes into the process of my delivery,” when she was called to “catch” Katie’s baby.

“I could hear it,” Corey added, ‘Dr. Laughlin, go to room ten.’ She sprinted out of my room and down the hall,” said Corey.

Katie’s baby girl, Indie arrived at 1:28 p.m, while Corey’s baby girl, Ryatt, arrived at 1:42 p.m.
