Kim Tucci — who gave birth to quintuplets in
January — requires 150 volunteers for about 50
nappy changes and 40 bottle feeds each day.

Kim Tucci — who gave birth to quintuplets in
January 2016 — has released pictures from a
photo shoot of her babies. Believe it or not,
Keith, Ali, Penelope, Tiffany and Beatrix were
conceived naturally — a one in 55 million
She, in fact, gave birth to them in just 2 minutes,
assisted by a team of 50 doctors and nurses.
Tucci told an Australian current affairs
programme, 60 Minutes, that her body was
shutting off during the pregnancy. Due to
mounting health risks to both her and her yet-to-
be-born children, she was initially given a choice
of saving two babies, while terminating the
others. “No-one thought I could do it, and I did, I
showed everyone in my life,”

Tucci has about 150 volunteers on hand to
help her and her husband with the estimated 50
nappy changes and 40 bottle feeds each day.
Perth and Districts Multiple Births Association
(PDMBA) volunteer support programme
coordinator, Krista Bingham, said, “The
volunteers will be doing stuff like helping to feed
babies, changing nappies, helping with washing
bottles and preparing feeds and changing linen
and washing baby clothes and all those sort of
tasks. They’ll also help with cuddling the babies
which is really important because multiple birth
babies need cuddles just as much as single
babies do.” Many of the volunteers are twins or
triplets themselves
The Tucci family has set up a crowdfunding
initiative on to raise money for a
van that is big enough to fit their entire family.
