Phillippine Mom Delivers Identical Quintuplets

In an amazing occurrence a Philippine mom has given birth to 5 babies without even knowing that she was pregnant…

Ramilyn Molino, a resident of the village of Talomo, Sto.Tomas, Davao del Norte was seven months pregnant when she complained of abdominal pains, Carlito Pillerin, administrator of the Davao Regional Hospital in Tagum City, said.

“She later gave birth to a baby girl but continued complaining,” he said.

Mr. Pillerin said relatives brought Ramilyn to the hospital, which is about an hour’s drive away from Sto. Tomas.

“But while en route to the hospital, the mother gave birth to yet another girl in the ambulance,” he said.

Shortly after arriving at the hospital, she delivered three more babies.

“The attending physicians were surprised because it is a rare case,” he said.

The babies, all girls, were prematurely born and had to be put under intensive care.

“Two of the infants however died but we still do not know [exactly] what caused their deaths,” he said.

“I hope the three other girls will survive,” Pillerin told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Doctors say that the parents need financial support.

“Their medical bill is increasing,” he said.

“It’s very rare and first time here in the region,” Dr. Salvador Estrera, assistant regional director of the Department of Health said of the quintuplet birth.

The mom is now conscious and recuperating at the hospital.

To say that these babies are rare is an understatement. If they had lived, they would have been only the second set to survive since the Dionne Quinuplets.
