He and his brother were born prematurely, delivered simultaneously as what their father described as a "bundle," and received immediate medical care from "an amazing neonatal team." After twelve weeks in the NICU, during which time they were kept in incubators, receiving vital fluids through intravenous lines and breathing with the help of mechanical ventilators, the twins were able to go home with their parents. By this time, Jack weighed four pounds, having weighed only one pound, seven ounces at birth.

Notes and references
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 The issue of Metro in which the article about Jack and Tom's birth is featured appears in the Underground scene in the film adaption of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, just before Harry Potter's disciplinary hearing on 12 August, 1995. The body of the article says that "It would be twelve weeks in total before a fully recovered Tilly and I could bring our boys home for the first time." Twelve weeks is eighty-four days, and eighty-four days before 12 August is 20 May. The prop issue itself is dated 1 December, 2006, but this is inconsistent with the canonical timeline of the Harry Potter series.
