Extremely rare identical triplets arrive

The three babies were delivered yesterday, Nov. 3, by C-section at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops.

Salmon Arm’s Mahalia and Mike Meeuwsen are now the proud parents of three identical triplet girls, which doctors say only happens once in every 50 million births.

The three babies were delivered yesterday, Nov. 3, by C-section at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. While doctors were hoping to do a C-section Nov. 16, complications with the pregnancy resulted in the decision to proceed with the delivery.

The triplets were conceived naturally without the use of fertility drugs.

Mom and all three babies, who were born at approximately eight weeks premature, are all said to be doing well. The three premature infants are being cared for in the neo-natal intensive care unit and will likely remain there for some time.

There is no word yet on the names of the three new babies.
