The delivery room of Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix – a hospital nationally-known for having carried out 90 successful “multiple deliveries” - stood witness to yet another special delivery, this time of quintuplets born to a Tucson woman! The five babies – three girls and two boys, were born after a minute of each other.
The proud parents – the Arizona couple Enrique and Lorena Puig – is celebrating the birth of the babies, with their community offering them a helping hand. Lorena, who underwent a 45-minute delivery - which she states was easier than her 29 weeks’ pregnancy – said about the birth of her quintuplets: "It was the most wonderful experience I ever had!"
The excited dad Enrique said all five babies - Anna Sophia, Alexandra, Abby, Andre and Joshua - are doing fine and breathing by themselves. The happy babies weigh between 2 pounds 1.7 ounces and 2 pounds 8 ounces.
Phoenix Hospital officials say that the quintuplets would be hospitalized for another two-and-half months.
The Puig couple and their family will receive help from their church and the babies’ grandmothers. Talking about help from grandparents, Lorena said: “The grandparents think they're going to be here for a few months, but I think they're going to be here a lot longer!”
