Hormone TreatmentsMake Patter Turn To Stampede PARIS (DPI) - Hormone treatments help bring babies but they also bring a problem not envisioned when childless couples first submitted to the treatment that has presented many of them with the daunting problem of multiple births. The patter of tiny feet is one thing — but how do you handle the situation when the patter sounds like a stampede? Eric Soubise", proud father of healthy quintuplets born July 1 at Caen on the French Normandy coast, has just petitioned French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing to take measures to help families in which unusual multiple births occur. Soubise's wife, Fran- coSse, was childless until she underwent a hormone treatment which led to the births of Amelie, Claire, Sophie, Vincent and Benjamin. He said the couple is now facing insurmountable problems as a result of the multiple birth. ''Francoise is exhausted," saidSoubisein a telephone interview. "Before the births we invested all our savings into buying me a partnership in a process-server's firm. At the end of September, Francoise will no longer have her schoolteacher's salary and It is out of the question for her to return to work with the five kids." So far, although all the children are faring well, only Claire and Amelie have been allowed out of the hospital. "With two children it is already exhausting," says Francoise. "But when they'll all be here, I'll have to spend 19 hours a day taking care of them. I'll have to get up at five o'clock in the morning and I'll have to prepare at least 35 bottles a day." Besides the extra work, the Soubises have calculated the babies will cost them at least $275 per month in diapers and milk alone plus hundreds of dollars more on clothes, cribs, baby carriages and other necessary items. The family car, a Renault, will soon be too small to contain the brood as will the five-room house the Soubises currently rent at Demouville outside Caen. Like all French families the Soubises have received the government child subsidies which, in comparison with other European countries, are fairly generous. These subsidies include the standard pre-birth allocation of $150 paid regardless of the number of children expected, post- birth allocations which for the Soubises totalled SI,250, the special large family allocation of $280 a month, plus the help of a family assistant free of charge for one month. Francoise also received two extra weeks of paid maternity leave in addition In the 18 weeks all new mothers are entitled to.
