    Virus Can't Stop Flood of Twins, Triplets at Methodist Women's Hospital

    Nine sets of twins. Three sets of triplets.

    Even for the always bustling NICU at Methodist Women's Hospital, it's a record.

    Multiples are nothing new at the hospital, which has one of the most successful fertility programs in the region. It's always so busy that some staff didn't realize they had set a record for multiple births in their care at one time.

    "We're used to this. This is what we do,'' said Dr. Khalid Awad, a neonatologist. "Small babies and big babies.''

    The only thing you won't see in the NICU is grandparents, family and friends. In the age of coronavirus, only parents are allowed.
