In Los Angeles, California, a woman gave birth to eight babies and they are all breathing and doing well. This came as a surprise because this is the second case of octuplets to survive in the US. There were six boys and two girls who were born nine weeks prior to due date. Dr. Mandhir stated that they were all breathing on their own and only need oxygen through the nose.

The mother requested to hide her name. The babies are still in the incubators and will be going for the feeding test soon. The hospital didn’t release comments on whether the pregnancy was through a fertility treatment. The birth was delivered by a team of 46 physicians, nurses, RT and surgical techs.
