Ohio woman gives birth to sextuplets in one minute
Canadian Press Thursday, February 26, 2004
AKRON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio woman gave birth to sextuplets Thursday and doctors said all six babies and the mother were doing well.
Jennifer Hanselman, 29, of Cuyahoga Falls, gave birth to the three girls and three boys within one minute at Akron General Medical Center.
"The speed at which the babies came out was overwhelming. It was like a popcorn popper," the baby's grinning father, Keith Hanselman, said.
The babies, delivered by caesarean section, were listed in critical condition, which is standard for premature births. They ranged in weight from one pound, nine ounces to two pounds, 10 ounces, which is average for multiple births at 28Ĺ weeks, said Dr. Anand Kantak, director of neonatology at Akron Children's Hospital.
The babies were transferred to the neonatal intensive-care unit at the children's hospital, where they are expected to stay for about nine weeks. All will be on respirators because of the immaturity of their lungs, Kantak said.
"We are very optimistic about their survival without major handicaps," he said.
