The mother was released last week and the babies were still in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit but are doing well. Aribola and her husband, natives of western Nigeria, had tried to conceive a child for nearly two decades. Sextuplets are very rare. Delivering in a such case required a coordinated team effort including many hours of planning and simulation at VCU Medical Center. “We’re going through this extraordinary journey together with the family,” said Ronald Ramus, M.D., director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine. This is an amazing medical accomplishment that would not be possible without the outstanding coordination of our obstetrics and neonatal teams,” said Russell Moores, M.D., medical director.
