Twins are considered as a symbol of luck by most families. But what if a mom just delivered 5 sweet babies all in one birth?
This may sound impossible but this really happened at the University of Utah hospital in Salt Lake City. A 34-year-old Mexican mom named Guillermina Garcia welcomed five healthy babies as she carried a set of quintuplets for almost 32 weeks. Her pregnancy duration is 7 weeks shorter compared to single birth pregnancies while it is 3 weeks longer than usual quintuplet pregnancies. Her doctors reported that the extra duration helped the babies develop their lungs.
Guillermina was the first mom to deliver a set of quintuplets in the university hospital. A total of eight doctors and a dozen of nurses helped her give birth to her 3 girls and 2 boys. Fortunately, the hospital reported that they are all doing well and are all healthy.
US Today claimed that Guillermina and her husband Fernando used fertility medicines to enhance the chance of getting multiple births. When they found out that Guillermina would be carrying five babies, she stayed in the university hospital since April.
All the healthy babies were born through cesarean section. They named them Esmeralda, Fatima, Marissa, Fernando and Jonathan. Aside from the 5 new babies, the couple also has a 1-year-old daughter. The medical staff of the hospital were all amazed of Guillermina’s ability to carry so many children without complaining a bit.
The Utah Doula Association opened an account for the family so people could donate for their financial needs. After all, raising 5 children simultaneously is indeed a very difficult job for any parent. Watch the whole documentation here:
