She told Newsday: “I really want to give hope and inspiration to other women…even men in my same situation to know that they can do this, to know that they can take on challenges and succeed and dispel the myths.” Listen to the interview.

DANI'S TWINS captures the pregnancy and early parenting journey of Dani Izzie, one of the few quadriplegics ever to give birth to twins. While a source of great joy, Dani’s twin pregnancy is highly unusual and susceptible to an array of risks, ranging from blood pressure spikes that could lead to a stroke to the almost-certain likelihood of preterm labor. When the pandemic strikes, it raises the stakes for an already complicated pregnancy.
