"I wasn't allowed to touch anything, I wasn't allowed to move. I wasn't allowed to do anything until they had told me to. That way, I was completely sterile – I wasn't supposed to touch anything." - Gerri WolfeThe procedure went well and when she was instructed by her OB-GYN to do her part. Wolfe carefully reached down and first pulled out Matilda, then Violet.

And then I had both of them!" - Gerri WolfeIndeed, the process oft he procedure performed to Wolfe and her twin daughters is not that easy but thankfully everything fell to its proper places.
