Guatemalan media is reporting  [es] a quintuplet birth in Guatemala City. The babies’ weight, three girls and two boys, is between one pound with 9 ounces and two pounds with 12 ounces, a weight to be expected as they were delivered on the 29th week of pregnancy. They were immediately admited in the high risk neontal ward. The mother, Maria Magdalena Jiménez, had had previous conceiving difficulties, so she went through a fertility treatment, with the result of this multiple pregnancy. The babies have stable health conditions, but are under medical observation.
On Twitter, the multiple delivery didn't go unnoticed:
