The pregnant woman did not expect the quadruplets to be born that day.
As soon as Tania Villanueva found out she was pregnant, she never imagined she would be in for so many surprises. even more so when the first of them left the dads very amazed. That’s because they weren’t expecting one, but four babies!
Everything was going well until Mom arrived for a routine appointment. Appointed precisely for New Year’s Eve, Tania got a new scare when the doctors told her that the quadruplets would be born that day.
“It was all very fast. I was admitted to the hospital at 11:30 a.m. and had my first baby at 2:36 p.m.,” the mother recalled to FOX40. “I was very happy. I thought: These are my first and last babies,” she added.
The first to be born was Andrew. Then came Julian, Robert, and Samuel. At the time, she was 28 weeks pregnant. That is, the little ones in a hurry got ahead in 12 weeks. Despite this, the four appeared to be in good health.
What also surprised everyone was that the siblings were born at two-minute intervals. In other words, the difference between the firstborn and the youngest is only eight minutes. Something rare in a quad birth.
About 20 professionals, including doctors, anesthesiologists, and nurses, helped with the birth of the Villanuevas. “As the babies were born, they moved on to the next nurse. There were definitely people everywhere,” said the pregnant woman.
The premature ones are still hospitalized and should be discharged soon. Thus, every day, dads need to travel to the hospital to meet their children, in a journey of approximately half an hour. The case happened in the city of Modesto, USA.
Many of the couple’s friends had already decided to assist them. So they created a crowdfunding site online to raise money for the family, which now has six members! The initiative already has more than 3,000 dollars in donations.
