Texas Woman Gives Birth To Triplets, 2 Of Them Conjoined

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A South Texas woman has given birth to triplet girls, with two of the babies conjoined at the pelvis.

A spokesman at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi said the conjoined babies, who share a colon, were in good condition Monday. Catalina, Ximena and Scarlett were born Saturday at Corpus Christi Medical Center-Bay Area. A spokeswoman for that hospital says the conjoined girls — Ximena and Scarlett — were transferred Sunday to Driscoll.

She says the girls were born to Silvia Hernandez of Brownsville via cesarean section, at about 34 weeks. A normal pregnancy is about 41 weeks. Each baby weighed 4 pounds, 11 ounces. They were breathing without respirators.

Catalina remains at Corpus Christi Medical Center-Bay Area in good condition.

Hernandez and husband Raul Torres also have 2-year-old son.
