I think what you can do is to first sort by mother's ID and DOB.
Typically using a retain statement, you can construct a baby ID for each
birth by the mother.
Using the mother's ID and baby's ID, you can than aggregate the results.
As Dan mentioned, please remember to set up a date difference of at least 90
days between birth or whatever is the best!
