 Quintuplets Likely for Mother of Ten Children
Already in her late forties, this mother of ten children from Melbourne, is due to give birth to quintuplets, conceived normally without the help of IVF.

According to experts, such an occurrence is extremely rare at this age, as the chances are just about one in 55 million.

This will be quite a record as they will be the first set of quintuplets born in Victoria in three decades.

''Fertility naturally declines and to conceive spontaneously after the age of 45 is particularly uncommon and to have a multiple pregnancy after the age of 45 is particularly uncommon,'' Dr Kilman said.
