A UNIQUE twist of fate was what brought Miranda Lammin and Kirsten Hansen together as friends, or as soul sisters, as they like to call it.

The two hairdressers were thrust into each other's lives through a string of coincidental events concerning the birth of each of their children.

"Basically, we gave birth to our boys, both named Eli, at the same time and then a few years later, our girls Addison and Aylah were born on the same day," Mrs Lammin said.

The Bundaberg women, who said they did not know each other before their initial pregnancies, met at an antenatal class and after their firstborns were brought into the world, realised they had quite a lot in common.

"Eli James was born on September 16, 2011. I messaged Kirsten to tell her that we had our baby and at that time, she was in labour with her Eli, " Mrs Lammin said.

"I was very emotional. I was in labour and in pain and I get Miranda's message which I was so excited about. Then I was like, oh my gosh - we have also chosen the same name, what are the chances?" Mrs Hansen said.

The mothers stayed in contact, celebrating their first borns' birthdays together and more.

It was in 2013 when Mrs Hansen and Mrs Lammin experienced a case of deja vu.

"I was in America on a holiday and I messaged Miranda to say I had something to tell her. She replied saying, 'oh me too'," Mrs Hansen said.

"Turns out we were both about five weeks pregnant. When we had our scans we realised that we were due on the exact same day and we would be having girls."

Both women were four days overdue and were rushed to hospital on the same day, treated in the same hospital room by the same midwives during birth.

"It was quite funny because I text Kirsten and I said, 'I think I am in labour - I am getting pains'. She text me back saying, 'I think I am too'," Mrs Lammin said

"Aylah Hansen and Addison Lammin were both born on July 12, 2014."

"It is a weird coincidence but it is so great to go through pregnancy with a friend," Mrs Hansen said.

"We call each other soul sisters now because we are clearly meant to be friends."
