The ᴘᴀɴᴅᴇᴍɪᴄ Also Brought Good News – A Woman Gave Birth To Identical Quadruplets

There are very few cases of identical quadruplets registered in the world. Here we tell you how was the birth of these little ones.

The ᴘᴀɴᴅᴇᴍɪᴄ was not an impediment to this incredible birth: the quadruplet babies arrived just one day before the mandatory confinement due to the ᴄᴏʀᴏɴᴀᴠɪʀᴜs ᴘᴀɴᴅᴇᴍɪᴄ was decreed. This is a very interesting fact because there are only 72 registered cases of identical quadruplets in the world.

It was a day in November last year, a day like any other, when Jenny and Chris went to the gynecologist for the first time, eager to meet their first baby through an ultrasound.

It was a sufficient surprise for the couple to learn that Jenny was pregnant when they asked the doctor if he felt the heartbeat. He replied that not only one but three heartbeats were heard. They couldn’t believe it, especially since they hadn’t even planned the pregnancy, the parents say in an interview they had with Fox News.

The big surprise came a week after her first ultrasound. They were not three babies, but four! Fortunately, the pregnancy developed normally, especially since the four children shared a single ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇɴᴛᴀ that had to nourish all of them equally.

Jenny was transferred to a ʜɪɢʜ-ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟᴇxɪᴛʏ unit for multiple pregnancies after receiving these results, in order to have better control over these high-ʀɪsᴋ pregnancies.

The babies were born in a hospital in Texas, USA, exactly one day before they went into quarantine. After spending about 10 weeks in intensive care to ensure their health and well-being, they were released and are now enjoying a lot of time with their parents.

Most of the recorded cases of quadruplets are girls. However, here we are talking about four men. Would you like to know their names? Well, these are: Hardy, Harrison, Hudson, and Henry. Yes, all with an “H.”

Jenny comments that it was not so easy to carry the pregnancy because there were four very restless babies who did not let her rest, in addition to the hunger she felt constantly.

After 28 weeks of pregnancy, they had to perform a ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ so she could give birth, and happily everything went well.

The delivery took place on March 15 at the Texas Health Presbyterian hospital in Dallas. Although the birth was scheduled for 34 weeks, the babies decided to be born earlier, at only 28 weeks.

They weighed only 1 kg each, and three of them required ᴠᴇɴᴛɪʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴ support for 10 weeks before being discharged. Now they are at home, enjoying time with their parents in this very special moment that occurs in the framework of the ᴄᴏʀᴏɴᴀᴠɪʀᴜs ᴘᴀɴᴅᴇᴍɪᴄ.

The chances are really slim, and there is one chance in 729,000. To have identical quadruplets in an assisted way, the chances are between one in 15 million pregnancies and one in 64 million naturally.

It’s definitely hard to have identical quadruplets, but it’s not impossible; Chris and Jenny are testaments to that.
