You Need To See The Woman Who Birthed Six Babies in Nine Minutes
No doubt, giving birth to one baby is tough! But six?! Well, Thelma Chiaka did just that at the Woman’s Hospital in Texas. The odds of giving birth to sextuplets are 1 in 4.7 billion!
The strong mama gave birth to two sets of twin boys and one set of twin girls between 4:50 a.m. and 4:59 a.m. That’s nine minutes!
“The babies were born at weights ranging from one pound, 12 ounces and two pounds, 14 ounces,” hospital officials said in the statement, “They are in stable condition and will continue to receive care in the hospital’s advanced neonatal intensive care unit.”
According to Medline Plus, babies born from multiple births are at a higher risk of being low birth weight (under 5 lbs, 8oz) and other complications, so these little angels are getting the TLC they need.
After putting in that work, mama is all smiles! And her babies are thankfully in stable condition in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit and will be monitored until they are ready to go home.
Let's take the time to applaud Thelma Chiaka for doing nothing short than a miracle!
