Hamlin Couple Delivers Quintuplets at Strong Beginnings

December 08, 2005

Marisol and Carlos Barreiro, of Hamlin, welcomed five new babies into the family just after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Their 4-year-old, Soleemar, is now a big sister to three girls and two boys:

Darón, boy, 1 lb 12 ½ oz

Zoraelis, girl, 1 lb 14 oz

Lysmarie, girl, 1 lb 13 ½ oz

Emealis, girl, 1 lb 11 ½ oz

Jomar, boy, 1 lb 14 oz

Matthew Mingione, MD, fellow in Obstetrics/Gynecology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, delivered the children by caesarian section at Strong Beginnings Birth Center. The pregnancy was less than 27 weeks long. Marisol is expected to be discharged Sunday.

The children are being cared for in Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). They are located in separate bassinets in one bay of the unit under the care of attending neonatalogist Robert Swantz, MD. They are expected to remain in the NICU for at least a couple months.

The Barreiro quintuplets are the first quintuplets born in Rochester since 1993.
