Woman Gives Birth to Six Babies in Nine Minutes

A mum in the US has earned the non-existent title of ‘World’s Champion of Childbirth’ after giving birth to six babies in less than 10 minutes.
Thelma Chiaka passed her sextuplets – which were comprised of two pairs of twin boys and one pair of twin girls – between 4.50am and 4.59am at the Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston.
The babies  were all in a stable condition in the hospital’s advanced neonatal intensive care unit.
The hospital shared the staggering news in a statement, in which it said the chances of Thelma giving birth to sextuplets was one in 4.7 billion… which makes you wonder what the odds are of giving birth to sextuplets in less than 10 minutes.
The statement, which was issued on Friday, read: “The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, an HCA Houston Healthcare Affiliate, which delivers more babies than any other Texas hospital, early this morning welcomed sextuplets, the odds of which are estimated at one in 4.7 billion.
