The Daily Mail reported on the sudden expansion of the Baudinet family. Their quintuplets, Ava, Camille (Millie), Clara, Isabelle, and Luke were born on December 4, 2016.
Proud mom Margaret has been sharing updates on the family’s blog, “Bundles of Baudinets.” Margaret and Michael decided to temporarily move to Arizona, so that the quintuplets could be in the care of renowned physician Dr. John Elliot. Margaret wrote on her blog about why they chose Dr. Elliot for his work with multiples. Despite the hardship of living far from friends and family, the Baudinets wanted to give their quintuplets the best care possible.
Sadly, many parents in similar circumstances are pressured to “selectively reduce,” a euphemism for killing one or more of the babies through abortion in order to increase the chances of healthy pregnancy and delivery for the other babies. Margaret shared her reaction to being pressured to “reduce the pregnancy”:
"As you can imagine, this is terrifying to hear, especially after you’ve heard that if you don’t reduce, your kids may have severe disabilities if they are lucky enough to even survive (much less you, the mother…oh yeah, almost forgot about you!)."Life News story continues
