Mexican Woman Gives Birth to Triplets after Sixth Pregnancy

MEXICO CITY – A Mexican woman gave birth to triplets after her sixth pregnancy at a hospital in the southern state of Chiapas, the state-run Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) said in a statement on Thursday.

According to the IMSS, the triplet girls, who weigh 2.1, 2.3 and 2.4 kilos (4.6, 5.1 and 5.3 lbs.), are “completely healthy” and will soon be able to join their three other sisters, two brothers and parents – Graciela Diaz, 28, and Javier Rodriguez, 26.

A team of obstetrician-gynecologists, pediatricians, anesthesiologists and nurses assisted in the Caesarean at a rural hospital in the municipality of Ocozocoautla, the IMSS said.

The mother had her prenatal visits at a clinic in the community of Chamizal, in the municipality of Ocosingo, where physicians confirmed that she was pregnant with triplets, after which they scheduled her birth at the rural hospital.

The operation was “complex because the mother has an uncommon type of blood, O negative, and because the babies shared one placenta,” though there were no complications, the director of the hospital said.
