 BabyFruit Ticker

Welcome to our baby website!  

The goal is to keep this updated for family and friends...  we'll see how it goes!

Unfortunately the designs and baby tickers don't accommodate sextuplets :)

The intention of this site was to give updates to our families and friends with the progress of Lauren's pregnancy.  We cannot control who can view this site.  Since the birth, it seems the media has caught on much more rapidly than expected, and have published the link to this site.  For members of the media, please see the statement below:

Please see the statement below regarding the sextuplets that were delivered at the Pavilion today.  The family is not taking interviews at this time and has asked for all media calls to come through Christy Brunton (clbrunto@texaschildrens.org or 832-824-2645)

Today at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women, Lauren and David Perkins from Houston, Texas gave birth to sextuplets at 10:26 am.  They delivered 3 boys and 3 girls at 30 weeks 1 day gestation and all babies are currently in the Texas Children’s Pavilion neonatal intensive care unit.  Both mom and babies are stable.  All babies weighed between 1lb 10oz and 2lbs 15 oz.  The sextuplets were conceived using intra-uterine insemination with ovulatory stimulating drugs. The Perkins are not releasing the names of the babies at this time.

A press conference is TBD once the family has had time to recover and agrees to release more details.  The hospital will release more details and photos at the permission of the family in the coming days.
