Five children in Texas - level 2
A couple in Texas welcomed not just one baby, but five. The babies were born at 29 weeks, and they weigh from two pounds and seven ounces to three pounds and six ounces (from 1.1 to 1.5 kilograms).
Around 24 medical staff helped in the birth of the babies. The babies were really small and cute. The mother couldn’t wait to get her hands on them. The couple’s neighbours and friends promised to help with the babies.
The mother miscarried a few times, so she used fertility drugs. The parents also have a two-year-old son.
Difficult words: staff (workers), miscarry (when a baby dies before it is born), fertility drug (drug which helps women have a baby).
