Sextuplets born at Brookwood Hospital | Families
A set of sextuplets was born on Saturday at Brookwood Medical Center to a couple from Dallas County.
More than 50 physicians and other medical staff assisted in the delivery of Heather and Mitchell Carroll’s six babies—five girls and one boy. The babies are in stable condition in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. Heather Carroll is also in stable condition.
“Heather and Mitchell Carroll were committed to this journey, their family and community were supportive, and God was faithful,” Dr. Bill McKenzie said in a statement from the hospital. “I am so proud of this mother’s toughness and appreciative for the excellent preparation and care she received.”
The babies were born at 28 weeks and range in weight from 1 pound 10 ounces to 2 pounds 5 ounces. Prior to their arrival, labor and delivery teams in the NICU at Brookwood prepared well ahead of time for the high risk pregnancy.
