Treasure Valley Quadruplets First In 15 Years

BOISE, Idaho — Boise doctors say quadruplets born at a local hospital are likely the first they have delivered in the Treasure Valley region in about 15 years.

Tracy Finken, 28, gave birth to three boys and a girl at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center on Tuesday.

Finken and her husband, Richard, say they tried to have a baby for two years before seeking fertility treatment. She became pregnant after taking a low dose of Clomid, a common fertility drug.

The babies weighed between 2 pounds to 3 pounds and all four needed help breathing after they were born. Doctors say two of the boys should be able to go home in about two months.

Emilee, the smallest of the babies, is expected to stay in the hospital longer.
