On 20 May, 1995, her sons were delivered prematurely, receiving immediate care from an "amazing neonatal team." They were quickly taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and Tilly did not learn the news of their birth until several hours later, when she "came around fully" (presumably from anesthetic she was administered). Hospital staff gave the couple photos of both babies, which the new parents used to help choose names for the boys. A few hours after waking up, Tilly was finally taken by Dave to see the twins in the NICU, where they were being kept in incubators, receiving vital fluids through intravenous lines and breathing with the help of mechanical ventilators.
Five days after the twins' birth, Tilly was able to hold Tom in her arms for the first time, giving her a "huge boost." The couple were able to take their sons home after they had spent a total of twelve weeks in the NICU.
