For the first time in 30 years a woman gave birth to sextuplets – five girls and a boy, in France.
The babies were born via caesarian section in Strasbourg. They are currently being hospitalized in neonatal resuscitation and will likely spend months in hospital care.
In addition to the newly-born babies, the woman also has two other children.
A similar phenomenon took place in France over 30 years ago, in 1989, in one of the hospitals of Paris.
