“I was super scared when I found out I was having quintuplets,” Megan Hulen said. She and her husband Josh were a mix of ecstatic and terrified when doctors told them they were about to welcome in five babies, a one in 43 million chance.
When doctors advised the couple to deliver in Fargo, 278 miles from their hometown of Surrey, ND, Megan and Josh had a million questions, but after discovering there was a Ronald McDonald House, they felt instant relief. Familiar with Ronald McDonald House Charities after the birth of their second son in Colorado they knew they could once again count on RMHC!
“Being pregnant with that many babies made me high-risk, and it was already stressful not knowing what was coming or how things would progress. Staying at the House helped tremendously as it took a lot of stress off me, not just financially, but we were able to have our family together,” Megan said looking back.
For 73 nights, the Hulen’s stayed with their two boys – stress and cost-free! On September 2, 2020, within a matter of minutes, Allison, Madison, Emma, Adam, and Chloe were born with little complication – the first set of quintuplets in North Dakota!
