A 40-year-old British woman from the northern Costa Blanca has given birth to twins, some three months early, weighing in at just 700 grams each. Arlene Drysdale gave birth at the Jávea health centre last week, just 26 weeks into her pregnancy, but so far the twins, named Valentina and Isabella, are doing well.

The girls will be looked after for the next couple of months at the neonatal unit of Alicante General Hospital.  “We hope that little by little, everything goes well,” said proud father Craig, who reported that the medical team in Alicante is happy with the progress of the twins. Arlene was discharged from the hospital at Denia at the end of last week.
