A Findlay family welcomed identical triplets to the world Monday. The Courier reports David Flick and Haley Hassan had the babies delivered by cesarean section at 30 weeks. Haley’s fluid levels were dropping to dangerous levels and doctors determined the surgery would be necessary.
Kiley Christine was born at 10:49 a.m., weighing 2 pounds, 2 ounces. Keeley Ann was born a minute later and also weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces. Cami Nichol came into the world at 10:51 a.m., weighing 1 pound, 1 ounce. Kiley and Keeley’s heart valves did not close properly, but doctors will give it a few weeks to see if they close on their own. If not, the infants may need open-heart surgery.
Identical triplets are extremely rare, especially when conceived naturally. Experts put the odds at over a one in a million.
