On Saturday, a woman from Texas gave birth to identical triplet girls. Two of the girls are conjoined in pelvis.
Silvia Hernandez and Raul Torres, parents of the triplets, got their new babies at Corpus Christi Medical Center. They also gave names to daughters: Catalina, Ximena and Scarlett. The phenomenon of identical triplets is a one in a million possibility. Conjoined triplets happen once in every 200,000 births.
The girls came to this world at 34 weeks. Their weight is 4 lbs., 11 oz. In a statement to the hospital, the mother said:
God chose us to take care of these babies. We put our faith in God’s hands first and everything will be all right
Ximena and Scarlett, conjoined babies, are taken to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi. The third girl stays with her mother at Corpus Christi Medical Center.
Conjoined girls have common pelvis. They have their own legs and separate bladders, but some part of intestines and abdominal wall are joined. Babies are likely to be separated within 6 months to 1 year. Now they are preparing to surgery, doctors are to see whether everything is good with liquids and if nothing is blocked up.
Silvia and Raul also have a 2-year-old son. The family got to know about conjoined babies during the pregnancy.
Mother posted on her Facebook account that she cried when she saw girls. That wasn’t because of the appearance of the babies, she was worried as doctors had told her that there was a great possibility that triplets could die.
