A Texas hospital said that a Houston woman gave birth to five girls in four minutes by cesarean section last week and all are doing well.
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas said on Tuesday in a statement that the five girls were born on April 8 at 28 weeks and two days. All were within the appropriate weight for that gestational age and currently require only a modest support for their breathing,
Danielle Busby and her husband, Adam Busby, named the girls Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige. They have a big sister named Blayke.
One girl weighed 2 pounds 6 ounces at birth, three weighed 2 pounds 4 ounces and one weighed 2 pounds, Adam Busby said on their blog.

There were more than five-dozen quintuplets or higher order births in 2013 in the United States, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, the latest statistics available.
