The only female quintuplets born in the United States were born in Houston at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas on April 8 at 4:41 PM. It took only four minutes for mom, Danielle Busby, to deliver all five girls.
Danielle and her husband, Adam, and big sister, Blayke, welcomed Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige, who arrived by C-section at 28 weeks and 2 days.
There has not been a set of all female quintuplets since 1969 in the world and it is the first set of all female quintuplets born in the United States.
“We are so thankful and blessed,” Danielle Busby said, “and I honestly give all the credit to my God. I am so thankful for this wonderful hospital and team of people here, they truly all are amazing.”
The Busbys, who are recording their experience on their blog, are part of a select group of parents. According to the most recent information from the National Center for Health Statistics, the number of quintuplets and other higher order births in 2013 totaled only 66 nationwide. Danielle had IUI, or intrauterine insemination, for both of her pregnancies.
