Sextuplets Delivered at Abington Memorial Hospital in Philadelphia
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 06/02/11 11:24 am | updated: 06/02/11 11:24 am
On Wednesday Abington Memorial Hospital announced the birth of sextuplets to a Philadelphia area family.

Three boys and three girls, born premature, are under close watch and care hospital's neonatal intensive care unit.

So far, there is no word of complications for either mom or the babies and the hospital will release more information at the families discretion.

Babies born premature are not fully developed, particularly, the lungs. Sextuplets are usually born about 11 weeks premature and they typically weigh about 2 and a half pounds each.

They new sextuplets are likely to remain at Abington Memorial for several weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit.

There are only about 36 surviving sets of sextuplets around the world today.

Abington has had multiple birth families before, including quadruplets and two sets of quintuplets in the 1990's, but this is their first set of sextuplets.
