Quad babes born at VGH on Tuesday

Quadruplet babies, three girls and one boy, delivered at Victoria General Hospital

The Brown family welcomed four new members into the world Tuesday, after quadruplets were delivered at Victoria General Hospital

“We are thrilled to welcome babies Riley, Emma, Liam and Alyssa to our family,” proud papa Mark Brown said in a statement. “We want to thank the nurses, doctors and all the staff at Victoria General Hospital, where (wife) Alicia and the babies have been getting excellent care.”

The babies, three girls and one boy, were born somewhat prematurely at 29 weeks between 7:41 and 7:45 a.m. on Oct. 21. Despite their early arrival, all of the newborns are doing well and are expected be cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit at VGH for about eight weeks.

“We are very grateful for the outpouring of support from our family, friends and the broader community,” Mark Brown said. “We would ask for privacy as we spend these precious early days together bonding as a family.”
