Meet Paula. On July 7th, she gave birth to triplets at MarinHealth Medical Center (two girls and a boy): Mery Belén, James Oliver, and Diana Lucero. Said to be the first set born in Marin County in nearly 20 years, the significance and rareness is not lost on Paula, who describes the experience as “a miracle.” She received all of her OB care at Marin Community Clinics, and learned that the number of children she was expecting could be multiplied by three about two months into her pregnancy.
“When they informed me, I was just so happy,” said Paula, “I was really grateful for how much attention was brought to me and the babies at the Clinics.” Working closely with Clinics Case Manager Cecilia Gonzalez and the OB team, Paula was connected to resources and was well prepared for labor. Dr. Michele Baron delivered her babies, and the entire Clinics OB team was honored to be a part of this piece of local history.
“I love the joy that a new baby can bring to a family,” said Dr. Baron. “During these challenging times, delivering babies has been a bright spot, and keeping patients safe during the process has been extremely rewarding.” Marin Community Clinics congratulates Paula and her husband on their three new bundles of joy.
