8 Babies Born to Stunned California Parents



BELLFLOWER, Calif. — Newborn octuplets in Southern California are a feisty bunch that appear healthy even at nine weeks premature, a doctor said Tuesday.

Three babies are being given oxygen but appeared to be doing well, said Dr. Mandhir Gupta, a neonatologist at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center.

At least four could be ready for their first oral feeding later Tuesday.

"All the babies were delivered vigorously, crying and kicking," he said.

The mother, who has not been identified, gave birth Monday to the six boys and two girls weighing between 1 pound, 8 ounces, and 3 pounds, 4 ounces (0.67 kilograms and 1.47 kilograms). She was resting comfortably Tuesday and was elated at welcoming eight children to her family, Gupta said.

The eighth baby surprised the parents and doctors, who had prepared to deliver seven children.

"It is quite easy to miss a baby when you're anticipating seven," said Dr. Harold Henry, chief of maternal and fetal medicine and one of 46 doctors, nurses and assistants who delivered the children by Caesarean section.

Two of the newborns — the second live octuplets born in U.S. history — were initially put on ventilators but were later removed.

The mother checked into the hospital in her 23rd week of pregnancy. Hospital officials would not say whether she had used fertility drugs, which make multiple births more likely.

The babies — dubbed with the letters A-through-H — will probably remain in the hospital for at least two months and the mother could be released in a week.

The world's first live octuplets were born in March 1967 in Mexico City, but all died within 14 hours, according to Encyclopedia Britannica.

The United States' first live octuplets were born in Houston in 1998, three months premature. The tiniest died a week after the birth. The surviving siblings turned 10 in December.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&

This is soooo fucking freaky!!


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dionne_quintuplets

The Dionne quintuplets, born on May 28, 1934[1], are the first quintuplets known to survive their infancy. They remain to this day the only female identical set ever recorded. The sisters were born just outside Callander, Ontario, Canada in the village of Corbeil. The surviving quintuplets prefer to be referred to as the Dionne sisters instead of quintuplets.

The Dionne girls were born two months premature with the assistance of Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe and two midwives, Madame Legros and Madame Lebel.


The identical quintuplet sisters were:

* Annette Lillianne Marie Dionne (Allard)
* Cécile Marie Emilda Dionne (Langlois)
* Émilie Marie Jeanne Dionne (died August 6, 1954 of accidental suffocation during an epileptic seizure at her convent)
* Marie Reina Alma Dionne (Houle) (died February 27, 1970 of an apparent blood clot of the brain in Montreal)
* Yvonne Edouilda Marie Dionne (died June 23, 2001 of cancer)

In their books, We Were Five and Family Secrets, Cecile, Yvonne, and Annette Dionne reveal that Emilie had a series of seizures while she was a postulant at a convent. She had asked not to be left unattended but the nun who was supposed to be watching her thought she was asleep and went to Mass. Emilie had another seizure, rolled onto her stomach and, unable to raise her face from a pillow, accidentally suffocated.

Marie was living alone in an apartment and her sisters were worried because they hadn't heard from her in several days. One of the other sisters' husbands broke down the window and found Marie who had been dead for days. The coroner determined it was a blood clot in the brain.

Birth

Although associated with Callander, they were actually born outside the community, in a farmhouse in unregistered territory, and their births were registered in nearby Corbeil. The Dionne Quintuplets Museum was purchased by, and moved to the nearest city, North Bay. The current location at the intersection of Highway 11 and the Trans Canada Highway was chosen in order to have greater exposure to the traveling public as well as other safety reasons. This kept the Dionne Home close to the original property as opposed to Niagara Falls or locations in the United States (both of which offered to purchase).

Exploitation
The Dionne sisters were brought to Toronto in 1939 to meet Queen Elizabeth.

The Dionnes were a farming family with five previous children (a sixth, son Léo, died of pneumonia shortly after birth). While the rural community did what they could, no one expected the babies to survive.

Soon, the Ontario government intervened. The custody of the five babies was withdrawn from their parents by the Ontario government of Mitchell Hepburn in 1935, originally for a guardianship of two years. Although Oliva Dionne remained part of the guardianship, they were put under the guidance of Dr. Dafoe and two other guardians. Ironically, although the children were removed from their parents' legal custody to protect them from exploitation and to ensure their survival into healthy toddlers, the government quickly realized the massive interest in Cecile, Annette, Marie, Yvonne, and Emilie, and proceeded to exploit them for financial gain. The girls were made the wards of the provincial crown until they reached the age of 18. Across the road from their birthplace, the Dafoe Hospital and Nursery was built for only the five girls and their caregivers to live in. The observation gallery, where thousands of people watched from meshed screens as the children played twice a day, became part of "Quintland," a theme-park like atmosphere showcasing and selling Quintuplet merchandise.

Approximately 6,000 people per day visited the observation gallery to view the Dionne sisters. Close to three million people walked through the gallery between 1936 and 1943[1]. In 1934, the quintuplets brought in about $1 million, and they attracted in total about $51 million of tourist revenue to Ontario. Quintland became Ontario's biggest tourist attraction of the era, at the time surpassing Niagara Falls.

From infancy until the age of nine, Marie, Cécile, Yvonne, Émilie, and Annette lived in the hospital, and were not allowed out of sight, to have friends, to participate in family chores, to attend village schools, or to have contact with their parents and siblings. Cared for by nurses, whom the girls sometimes viewed as maternal figures, the five children lived essentially as one unit, with little understanding or knowledge of the world outside the nursery fence.

The sisters, and their likenesses and images, along with Dr. Dafoe, were used to publicize commercial products such as corn syrup and Quaker Oats among thousands of other popular brands. They starred in four Hollywood films:

* The Country Doctor (1936)
* Reunion (1936)
* Five of a Kind (1938)
* Quintupland (1938)

Return to family
The quintuplets in 1947.

In November 1943, Oliva Dionne finally won a long custody battle. The quintuplets, aged nine, moved into a mansion up the road from Quintland, joining their parents and siblings, who were virtual strangers to them, to live as a family. The yellow brick, 20-room mansion was paid for out of the quintuplets' fund, unknown to them at the time. The home had all the luxuries of the time, including telephones, electricity and hot water. The mansion was nicknamed "The Big House."

The sisters increasingly appeared and performed at various functions. In particular, their performance of "There'll Always Be an England" (for the war effort) irritated some French-Canadians[citation needed]. Footage of the event included in a 1978 National Film Board of Canada documentary hosted and narrated by Pierre Berton shows the 13-year-olds reciting their names and singing.

Adult years

In 1965, author James Brough wrote a book, in cooperation with the four surviving quintuplets, called We Were Five. Pierre Berton published a biography called The Dionne Years: A Thirties Melodrama in 1977. John Nihmey and Stuart Foxman published Time of Their Lives--The Dionne Tragedy in 1986. Nihmey and Foxman's book was the basis for the 1994 TV miniseries, Million Dollar Babies (1994), produced by CBS and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and starring Roy Dupuis and Céline Bonnier. The next year, in their book Family Secrets, the three remaining sisters alleged they were victims of sexual abuse at the hands of their father, and that a member of the clergy urged them to cope by wearing thick coats.

In both We Were Five and Family Secrets, they accused their mother of physical and verbal abuse, described their siblings as envious and cruel, and claimed that they were told the family would have been better off if they had not been born. They reported that their father was a "selfless pig who ate too much" and said he abused the dog in sexual ways. By their report and that of their closest sister, Pauline, their upbringing in the Big House was filled with double messages; their father said repeatedly that they would receive no special treatment and were to think of themselves as equal to his other children, yet in daily life they were treated by their parents as a five-part unit. They were denied privileges the other children received as a matter of course, received a heavier share of the house- and farmwork, and were invariably dressed alike. According to the surviving sisters, any attempt to become independent was prevented by their father when he could; he blamed "outsiders" for their "disloyalty" to the family.
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&
