Newborn Triplets, Two Conjoined, Delivered at Corpus Christi Medical Center – Bay Area

Corpus Christi, Texas, May 17, 2015 Corpus Christi Medical Center-Bay Area CEO Jay Woodall announced the birth of identical female triplets, of which two are conjoined, on May 16, 2015 at 10:36 p.m. Sylvia Hernandez and her husband, Roel Torrez, welcomed Catalina Montserrat, Ximena Jackeline and Scarlett Juliet, who arrived by C-section one day short of 34 weeks. All are of the same weight, four pounds, eleven ounces and currently are breathing without the assistance of a respirator.

The conjoined twins were transferred to Driscoll Children’s Hospital; however, dad is relieved and grateful. "God chose us to take care of these babies," Roel Torrez said, "we put our faith in God’s hand first and everything will be alright.”

The parents traveled to Corpus Christi Medical Center – Bay Area from the Valley for medical care from Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist, Ryan Loftin, MD. Sylvia remained on bedrest for the past five weeks to allow for babies to continue growing, while father Roel worked out of town, visiting her often.

The family is asking the community for prayers and support. To follow this story, and support the family, visit their Facebook page – Siamese Triplets Hernandez Torres.
