These Septuplets Were The First Ever To Survive Birth – And Here’s What They Look Like 20 Years On

Video taken from the channel: watchJojo

the sextuplets births in the US since 1973 have resulted all 6 surviving, and almost 60% have had at least 1, and frequently more survivors. Although many septuplets do not survive to birth or beyond infancy, at least 3 sets of septuplets, and possibly 1 more, did result in 7 live births where the babies survived beyond infancy. In 2017, 193 quadruplets were born.

3  Spontaneous conception of quadruplets is rare. The MOST (Mothers of Super Twins) organization estimates the odds at 1 in 571,787 pregnancies. 4  Most recent quadruplet births are the result of assisted reproductive techniques such as fertility-enhancing drugs or in-vitro fertilization. It’s very rare to see multiple births end successfully, or for all of the babies to grow up to be healthy young adults.

Perhaps that’s why this story is something quite incredible. Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey. Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey had their first child on January 3, 1996. Their little girl was named. Mr and Mrs E Stanek, parents of sextuplets, disclose that multiple births do not reap financial bonanza they did in the past; Stanek estimates that hosp and dr bills will amt to from $30,000 to.

Multiple Birth Statistics & Research Raising Multiples has conducted a number of in-house research studies on a variety of issues related to higher-order multiple births. Some of these studies were completed when our organization was known as MOST (Mothers of Supertwins), some studies are ongoing. NOTICE: Raising Multiples provides these statistics. The “number of multiple births of triplets or more due to fertility drugs like clomiphene citrate and injectable hormones rose from 36 percent to 45 percent from 1998 to 2011,” according to NPR.

Twin birth rate: 32.6 per 1,000 live births Triplet or higher order birth rate: 93.0 per 100,000 live births Source: Births: Final Data for. There were just 24 quintuplet or sextuplet deliveries out of 3.9 million total births nationwide in 2015, the most recent year for which statistics are available. The only other surviving sextuplets born in the United States this year were delivered in May in Richmond, Va. This is a list of multiple births, consisting of notable higher order (4+) multiple births and pregnancies.

Twins and triplets are sufficiently common to have their own separate articles. With the use of reproductive technology such as fertility drugs and in vitro fertilization (IVF) such births have become increasingly common. This list contains only multiple births. Babies born from multiple-birth pregnancies are much more likely to result in premature birth than those from single pregnancies.

51% of twins and 91% of triplets are born preterm, compared to 9.4% in singletons. 14% of twins and 41% of triplets are even born very preterm, compared to 1.7% in singletons.

  • the majority have cross-eyes. 5:43 kills me that sucks, something must have happened or maybe someone shouldn’t have been playing god

  • God she already has her hands full with three kids and 9 is just gonna be a nightmare that state tax ride off is gonna be huge though

  • Super pais. Família unida, sendo família,nove filhos, e os pais tiram de letra. Gosto de ver, que os meninos maiores ajudam mto. Tem uma outra família de cinco, que a mais velha não tem paciência e TD é exclusivo. Estes papais educam os meninos a participarem, se doarem.acho excelente. Parabéns a família.

  • If anyone is wondering the children are now 10 years old and have disabilities. Two of the children wear glasses and have bad eyesight, Rosie has cerebral palsy, and they each have their health issues. I’m really not sure how they cope, as they don’t have much money and can’t afford a lot of things. Eg Rosie needs a special bike for therapy, but they can’t afford it so they were trying to do bouncy castle fund raising etc to get the 3.5k. There is no way they could’ve coped with 6 children, cost wise. They were using 40 nappies per day at one point with 4 which was their biggest expense and cost. I don’t know why she didn’t go with reusable in that case. The father doesn’t really work much he drives a lorry for an agency. The family then lost their home to a house fire, but fortunately they all got out safely due to the older daughter. Moral of the story, when you don’t sacrifice any babies, there isn’t enough space for all and the rest of the babies are given a lifetime of disabilities. Sad, really. As harsh as it sounds, if they had reduced the number to two or three, as was suggested by the doctors, she’d have more likely carried long term and had healthy children.

  • I love the cries and squeaks of newborns. It’s not like they’re crying, they’re communicating.
    Not all women have the mother instinct, and they need more help than those who do.

  • Omggg, I’m so glad I didn’t get hit with the multiple births even though twin’s runs in my family badly. My cousin’s had twin’s ������������

  • OMG! Those babies look just like their Daddy! They’re all bald-headed just like him! LOL I wonder what these people would do if they were poor??? Do poor couples ever have multiple birth babies? How can they possibly afford to buy all the things those babies need? We never hear about a poor woman giving birth to triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets or or sextuplets!

  • What a lovely couple. It was heartbreaking to see them lose the two babies. Those babies are going to be excessively good looking. Both parents are very attractive.

  • It’s hideous that anyone would accuse them of wasting resources. They chose to have a second child and they were given 7. Even with fertility treatments, 7 is highly unusual. They went through the pregnancy knowing that some of not all could die during birth. The fact that they are all alive is a miracle. I feel bad for parents that want so badly to conceive and then are faced with multiple pregnancies that are extremely high risk. I would be an emotional wreck during the entire pregnancy if it were me.

  • Some facts bit strange set of sextuplets all girls back in the 80s then another family had a set later I think boys and girls I lived not far from them sometimes we see them all out for a walk.
    I gather seven babies were born in America back in the 90s

  • Omg! They were so cute as babies, now they are beautiful and handsome young women and men! ��������������������������������. What a beautiful big family, continue to keep God head of your household and you can accomplish anything because with God there’s nothing impossible for him to do, amen? AMEN!

  • Too easy? Omg you are superwoman…i have two and somethimes i am lost ��. I admire you. Good bless youre family. Sorry for yuor losses

  • WAKE UP PEOPLE….THOSE TWO SELF CENTERED IDIOTS PRODUCED 5 DISABLED KIDS WHO TAKE AWAY FROM NORMAL KIDS. Now look at those kids…every single one of them is mentally disabled….

  • I really like this couple. They both have so much empathy and you can see how grief stricken they are after losing the 2 babies, especially the mum. Watching this makes me homesick even though I have lived in the U.S. for 37 years now. Awww Grace is a sweet heart holding her siblings. ❤

  • Aww this was so lovely to watch, but also so sad at the same time. Fantastic parents and a lovely big sister what a great beautiful family. My surname is also lamb ����

  • So take loving care of your mother and father. Mother took great risks to bring us into this world. We were lovingly made and well taught. So do not criticize them with one word. ❤️

  • Families feel too guilty to reduce the pregnancy not realizing that it is for a greater good.
    Pippa and Matthew RIP.
    Sympathies to their family.

  • first stop I don’t want no 8 freaking kids too much for me if you don’t have six children then why not pulling up for adoption at least but you it’s your choice not mine that’s all anybody else is with your husband and the mother’s choice sojust take good care of them cracks and way too much children I don’t think I have like 10 15 children in this world but that’s just saying way too much baby babies

  • My mum had one egg fertilised the eggs split so mum was going to have quadruplets so now mum has nine-year-olds quadruplets me Kennedy Kayla and Cassidy

  • Oh my goodness I just wanna get my hands on those babies so bad! I have the worst baby fever of my life! I’m 35 and I had three kids who are now eleven thirteen and fifteen! And I miss the feeling of a baby in my arms!!

  • Nice story, except ya,LL should have named them the seven days of week. But instead you are the seven deadly sins and are probably who posses everyone to commit wrong doing. And only to do our best when married under grounds for divorce. That’s the worst sin that’s unforgivable and not measured.

  • I get that c section is different from vaginal birth but also every experience can be different too with their own difficulties so not one birth or recovery is always harder than the other

  • Would make far more sense to leave the other three at home while they go and get the fourth one from the hospital. What a trek carting three of them back and forth and risking infection etc.

  • That woman is an absolute saint. What an amazingly strong family that are so incredibly positive after everything! How beautiful ��


  • What a beautiful family. I am the grandmother of naturally occurring triplets. Surprise pregnancy. Also had a one year old and two three year old girls when they were born. There are two girls (identical) and a boy. The two girls were diagnosed with T.A.P.S. (A rare disorder during pregnancy. It wasn’t able to be corrected and they had little chance of survival. But all 3 survived. Since then, mom and dad divorced and on March 1, 2020, my son (their Daddy) saved four children from their house fire. Only the family pet passed from the fire. It has been 2 long years and they are all living with us since the fire. Everything including car seats, bottles, clothes, everything they owned was destroyed but thanks to God, the triplets are all doing well (the smallest girl has Cerebral Palsy after a brain bleed) and they will turn 2 this August. We are all very blessed and I love hearing your story and remember those fears in a smaller amount. Bless you all!

  • I’m pregnant n I’m stressed after this vdo… 6 little babies to take care at once? I have a son before n I’m tensed for another one n she’s having sixxxxx?????

  • Beautiful children. So sad that in the U.S. Babies can be aborted up to the moment of birth and even after being born, If the mother chooses to.

  • What a BEAUTIFUL strong and sweet family! My daughter’s birthday is also May 14th which means some years her birthday falls on mother’s day which I love she’s the best gift! God bless the Lamb family.

  • The medical fraternity creating these horrific situations should face criminal chargesit is horrific for the poor babies (so many have SEVERE disabilities)….it is horrific for the parents, and horrific for society in general (the cost astronomical)….

  • “It’s fate”. But yet they were not implanted by fate. Just a point to ponders. Never could I do a reduction. Yes I feel for parents who want children. But maybe “fate” was decided and some took things into their own hands.

  • Praise the Lord! I’ve never seen a family so graceful and cannot describe the emotional rollercoaster as a viewer yet alone imagine how it was for both parents, and I’ve had a 29 weeker premature boy… I take my hats off to you and honestly think you deserve all of the best things in life with your beautiful family… God bless your Matthew and Pippa xx

  • lovely family….just wondering if they really are the first…I remember 6 babies born in the 70’s or 80’s to a family in South Africa…the first in the world….they had tv ads…six Rosankovitz kids…that’s what they used to call them…what happened to them..

  • So incredible. To go through all that, losing two children and still having a smile on your face and having time for your oldest child is so inspirational. I wish all of you the best of luck for the future and that your children grow up to be stars.

  • Wonderful. I remember taking our twins after 3 single babies to church (or anywhere else where I can get the chance) 5 together but imagine 9 including 6 at once! SO so sad that we have not even managed it once now they are grown during covid 19. Will we ever be allowed to meet as a family again? Even Christmas lunch may be off the table in the UK (Easter didn’t happen and the annual summer holiday was cancelled). What a year. If there is a God he certainly seems to hate large families in 2020.

  • They better get a bigger car ��
    & big sister was way too mature and calm when the babies screamed in her face! shes gonna be such a good big sissy!

  • I honestly want to know how they tell which baby is which when they’re all wearing the same outfit like thatlike that’s talent right there

  • I’m a grandmother of 2 girls & 6 boys, all in under the age of 5 years, I had to look after them for the whole day, by the end I was exhausted & that’s just for the day, so I can Understand if mum & dad are tired
