Twelve mothers in the United States have a good reason to be twice thankful on Thanksgiving Day. They gave birth to twins this week at Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.
It was a record birth for the hospital which for the first time delivered the largest number of twins in its history.
“We always see multiples in here, but not 12 sets at one time,” nurse Danielle Gathers told CNN affiliate KMBC.
Another record the hospital made was seeing the largest number of premature twin babies come to this world. All twins were born between five and 14 weeks early.
Saint Luke’s Hospital should relish those two records as it won’t beat the busiest hospital in terms of childbirth.
At the Fabella Hospital in Manila, 100 pregnant mothers give birth every day, according to the documentary “Motherland (Bayang Ina Mo)” by Ramona Diaz.
Easily, that’s 100 babies per day and no less because the place has almost zero mortality rate. It can also be more than 100 babies per day, if twins are born.
