A mum has finally been discharged from hospital two months after giving birth to extremely rare quintuplets.
Haylee Ladner, 26, brought her five babies home in time to celebrate her first Mother’s Day.
Some of her babies had made it back to the Mississippi home before their mum with the youngest, Jake going home on April 27.
Jake was followed home by sisters Magnolia, then Adalyn and finally by Everleigh, Malley Kate and the exhausted mum Haylee on May 5 – all in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday May 14.
Her squad of sprogs arrived well before the due date of May 10. The quintuplets were born at 28 weeks and one day, on February 16.
Before Haylee returned home, the babies were being looked after by her husband Shawn, supported by their extended family.
Usually babies don’t go home until their due date so to go home early was a show of how well they were doing.
“It’s because I’ve wanted to have a baby my entire life and then now that I have these babies, they’re my biggest blessing that I have and so I don’t mind it. I don’t mind the chaos.”
Haylee and her husband married in September 2019 and suffered two miscarriages and went through three intrauterine insemination cycles before becoming pregnant with quintuplets.
She shared some maternal wisdom encouraging other mum’s to stay present.
“One day, they’ll be grown up and have their own lives. So soak in every minute that you can,” she said.
