Ruby Elizabeth, William Lee and Savannah Grace Kneggs are the triplets born at Doctors Hospital last month. They are the first triplets born at the hospital in its 53-year history. Parents are Neely and Trey Kneggs, and the babies also have a 20-month-old brother, Bryan.
Neely Kneggs says she chose to have her babies at Doctors Hospital because her older son was born there, and she had a good experience.
The babies weighed 4 pounds 12 ounces, 4 pounds 6 ounces and 5 pounds 1 ounce, respectively, and were released from the hospital 11 days after they were born.
In 2009, 5,905 sets of triplets were born in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Triplets accounted for 153.5 per 100,000 live births in the U.S. that year.
