Mothers Nadia and Elizabeth Harris wed in 2009 and wanted to start a family. In 2013, Nadia and Elizabeth met with Dr. Stacey Holman, of the LSU Department of OBGYN, who referred them to fertility specialist, Dr. Peter Lu. On April 9, 2013, after three and a half years trying to get pregnant, Dr. Lu performed Nadia’s tenth insemination. Nearly three weeks later, Nadia learned that she was expecting quintuplets.

On October 4, 2013, Elizabeth Anne II, Dawson Aidan, Maxwell Alexander, Micah Quinn, and Joseph Matthew were delivered at Touro by Dr. Stacey Holman with the help of a team of more than 30 doctors, nurses and technicians.
