“We are just very happy they are healthy and doing well,” said the twins’ Dad, Jorge Espinoza.
“We are honored that more Houstonians have chosen us—year after year—to help welcome their children into the world and be part of memories that will last a lifetime,” said Linda Russell, CEO of The Woman’s Hospital of Texas. ““For more than 35 years we have celebrated the New Year with the delivery of newborn Houstonians. Woman’s is also celebrating a record breaking 2012, delivering more than 10,000 babies in one year. We can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!”
The twins and their family received a giant gift basket from The Woman’s Hospital of Texas full of couture gift items purchased at Doodles Baby Gifts and More. Woman’s first babies of 2013 will begin the year in style!

About the Woman’s Hospital of Texas
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas is an acute care hospital located near the Texas Medical Center. The hospital was established in 1976 by a group of physicians who recognized the need for a facility focused solely on the care of women and infants. In keeping with this vision, Woman’s offers a full range of women’s services, including breakthrough developments in minimally invasive surgery such as Robotic Surgery, and urogynecology. The hospital has an antepartum unit, 36 labor and delivery rooms, a medical surgical unit and 124-bed Levels II and III Neonatal Intensive Care nurseries. Since its inception, Woman’s has welcomed over 200,000 babies into the world and delivers more babies in Houston than any other hospital. Our experienced physicians specialize in high-risk deliveries, from handling preemies weighing less than 1,500 grams to offering a comprehensive Multiples Clinic for women having twins, triplets, or more. In addition, the Woman’s Hospital of Texas was twice named a top performer in quality measures by the Joint Commission, and has been designated as a Center of Excellence for Continence Care in Women by the National Association for Continence.
