(Scroll down for video) A Czech, is the country’s first woman to give birth to quintuplets after she conceived them naturally.
Alexandra Kinova, 23, gave birth to five babies by Caesarean section at a hospital in Prague.
Kinova, from Milovice in the Czech Republic, gave birth to five healthy babies, one girl and 4 boys.
She conceived the quintuplets without fertility drugs, which is extremely rare.
Doctors first thought the 23-year-old was expecting twins. Later on, they told her she was having quadruplets, but towards the end of her pregnancy a sonogram revealed she was actually carrying five babies.
Kinova, already has a child, a 5-year-old son. She decided to have another baby and she was surprised to learn she was having five.
The community has organized help for the family. They will pay for two nannies during the first three years. The local government gave them a larger apartment.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
