Husband and wife Oksana Kobeletskaya (36) and Sergei Kobeletskaya were extremely happy because they were about to give birth to a new family member, a brother or a sister for their 3-year-old daughter.
But when the woman went to one of the routine consultations, the doctors told her probably the most shocking news of her life.
“Everything was as usual: empty abdomen, gel, and sensor. But when she started looking at the screen, the doctor changed her expression, and I was very scared “- Oksana remembers. – “I remember how she started counting out loud to the girls, saying that for this I should be offered a house on the seaside…”
Finally, the doctor pronounced the result: the ultrasound clearly showed five faces! The birth of quintuples without in vitro fertilization is a very rare phenomenon: 1 case in 55 million. And as Oksana tried to accept the novelty, the doctors talked enthusiastically about their unique patient. Most of their colleagues will not see such a thing in their whole life!
“I could not understand what was happening to me. I had the impression that I was dreaming and that I would wake up immediately “- the woman remembers. It was quite difficult for future parents to accept this shocking news. Only all the plans they had in mind for the future had to be changed… But they were not going to give up such a gift of destiny.
Labor began in the 30th week of pregnancy. When she arrived at the hospital, Oksana was already expected by eight doctors and maternity nurses. She later remembered that the doctors treated her like a crystal vase – very carefully.
Three boys and two girls were born by cesarean section. Despite the doctors’ fears, all five were healthy, even though they initially needed extra care.
Obviously, immediately after they were born, Dariya, Aleksandra, Denis, Vladislav, and David became stars. Their birth is the only known case in Ukraine.
