Alabama Mother-Of-Three Welcomes Sextuplets At 30 Weeks

A mother-of-three has welcomed six more babies just a year after a painful miscarriage. Thirty-five-year-old Courtney and Eric Waldrop welcomed their sextuplets on 11 December. Although they have always wanted a big family, they never imagined to have nine kids. The three boys and three girls were delivered within four minutes at 30 weeks. The Alabama couple and middle school sweethearts are more than thrilled. The boys were named Layke Bryars, Blu Wellington and Tag Bricker while the girls were named, Rivers McCall, Rayne McCoy and Rawlings McClaine.

They were a happy family-of-five before Courtney realized she was pregnant.

Interestingly, she was surprised to learn she was expecting sextuplets after taking low dosage fertility drugs earlier this year.

Here is a picture of the family before welcoming the sextuplets.

Courtney is pictured with her twin boys Wale and Bridge, five, and oldest son Saylor, eight.

The family had a long history of miscarriages after they had their first son Saylor in 2008. After using fertility drugs, they conceived their twins, Wale and Bridge. Then, Courtney had a miscarriage with their fourth child and she took fertility drugs.

“It was devastating because I can get pregnant so easily, I just can’t hold on to them,” Courtney told PEOPLE. “It was upsetting, but we had experienced it before and I knew I had a medical issue that contributed to it.”

In June, the doctors confirmed the family were expecting six babies.

Although it was a happy moment, it was also concerning. Mothers carrying multiple fetuses have an increased chance of having a c-section. They also hold a higher risk of stroke, high blood pressure, gestational diabetes and urinary tract infections.

Here is an ultrasound from August, which shows three of the fetuses in the womb.

The family are happy they reached the milestone of 30 weeks as this meant the babies will be safe and healthy.

At 25 weeks, doctors put Courtney on bed rest for seven days so as to slow the babies’ progression.

The babies were all born crying and are now safe and healthy, although premature.
