Dr. Michael Paul helped bring eight boys and one sweet girl into the world, enough for the world’s cutest baseball team.
[MUSIC] In the last six weeks we had the opportunity to care for three sets of triplets all at once. Bam, bam, bam. [LAUGH] [MUSIC] We had three identical boys. We have three boys. Two identical and one fraternal. We had two identical twin boys, and the one and only princess little girl. This is so exciting to see everybody. All of these babies. Admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit. And our neonatal intensive care nurses are by and large the best in the region. There's not question about that in my mind. We're not only treating the babies, we're also helping the families coping through a difficult time. We put our arms around them and say, you know. We've seen this, we've done this. And it's gonna be okay. The nurses in the NICU were fabulous. They're all hooked up to these tubes and wires and when are they ever going to come home. You get that feeling at some point as the weeks go on and they're very reassuring and very positive. I had Dr. Powell as my physician, and he was just absolutely wonderful. Couldn't have been a better physician. At my house, I have triplets as well. So this is more of a mission for me. Based on personal experience than it is for many other people who do what I do. So bring the babies. [LAUGH] When we were told that we were gonna be a part of a big photo and especially with nine babies we thought, no way is that gonna happen. Nine babies somebody's gonna spit up, somebody's gonna poop. [LAUGH] Somethings gonna happen. [SOUND] St. Louis is a baseball town. And having nine babies all at once makes a baseball team. [MUSIC] The mom's [INAUDIBLE] friends. There are triplet support groups. And I think they've kinda developed their own. We're all Facebook friends, and then we check in with each other via text message, or messaging, and just say hey How you doing this week? How are the babies doing, ya know? And it's been a great resource for all of us because we're all going through the same thing. Nice smile right there. That's great. I love what I do. I love teaching these families to be parents, and my favorite part is walking down the corridor with that baby in the car seat. Watching those parents put the car seat in the car and becoming a family and knowing that I had a part in making that dream come true. [MUSIC] Very unique situation, all of these children together at once and again a team that will stay together for years and years to come It's a wonderful experience. [MUSIC]
