Sam’s dad was an identical twin, although identical twins are not genetic — they result from one fertilised egg randomly splitting in two, so there’s no familial link there. These first-time parents of two peas in a pod have just celebrated their seven-year anniversary and have already established a flexible feeding/sleeping schedule that seems to be working swimmingly. Sam continues: “I’ve been involved in a number of other cafes and start-ups before opening Commonfolk so I know about hard work. This is the first time I’ve taken personal leave in six years and am really enjoying the time with Eliza and the girls. Yes, we’re not getting as much sleep as we used to and I’m on about five or six coffees a day, but it’s fantastic. I’m trying to convince Eliza to bring them into work every day when I’m there, which should be easy as we live close by. I’ve already got about 30 staff who have put their hands up for babysitting. It’s going to take a whole village to raise these girls.”

Giving birth naturally to twins is no mean feat, especially if there’s a breech baby involved. Twelve hours of labour later and Sam says his admiration for Eliza’s strength and determination is endless. He concludes: “Because the girls shared a placenta and there was the risk of complications like twin-to-twin infusion, both Hazel and Murphy had their own physician and midwife. I am amazed at how Eliza did it. She’s breast-feeding both of them now too. Just so amazing. Hazel and Murphy’s welfare will always be top priority.”

Mornington Peninsula Magazine congratulates this Peninsula-born-and-bred guy and his wife living the not-so-common family life.
