MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Pa. (KDKA) -- An Ohio hospital is seeing double -- a lot of double. 

The Hillcrest Hospital NICU and postpartum units are caring for seven sets of newborn twins at the same time, Cleveland Clinic Children's said in a Facebook post last week. 

"We've been feeling double the love caring for 7 sets of newborn twins, at the same time," the hospital wrote on social media.

Some of the babies were welcomed by first-time parents, while others like Jason and Kara grew their family to seven.

"Best wishes to all!" the hospital said with heart emojis. They shared photos of the twins, most of them dressed in matching and coordinated outfits.
