An expert team named Quad Squad, which includes obstetricians, physicians, neonatologists, nurse practitioners and nurses, respiratory specialists, a radiology and engineering team, a blood bank, and the pharmacy were gathered when Kortney's pregnancy was announced at 16 weeks, a week into Kortney's second trimester.
The Quad Squad was given weekly updates on the mother-to-be's progress to prepare for the upcoming delivery. In addition to meeting every week for discussion on delivery preparations, the team also took two practice sessions for the historic procedure.
Kortney, who was not restrained in bed for rest, was not expected get into labor until 27 weeks. The team had planned for delivery between 27 and 34 weeks. As believed by the team, the mother-to-be reached 29 weeks when she visited her obstetrician on Friday, Dec. 16, after sensing a change.
Kortney was admitted to Piedmont Newnan, and the members of Quad Squad were notified of the Coweta mother's labor.
Dr. Heather Turner, an obstetrician at Piedmont Newnan who delivered the couple's first son, Brentlee, in 2013, delivered the set of quadruplets as well.
