Ukraine woman gives birth to quintuplets: All 5 babies are healthy Ukraine woman gave birth to 5 babies in Odessa maternity centre. A birth of quintuplets is a unique case for Ukraine.

On June 24th, 2016, 37-year-old Oksana Kobeletskaya and her husband from Odessa became proud parents of 5 newborns: two girls and three boys. The Ukrainian mother gave birth to the children via C-section. After an easy pregnancy, all 5 babies were born healthy.

Svetlana Galich, the obstetrician and professor of gynaecology from the Odessa maternity centre, said that the babies were born at 32 weeks. They weighted from 1,1 to 1,8 kg (2,4 to 3,9 lbs). The obstetrician added that the operation was performed by 3 doctors, all named “Svetlana” (it just happened), two of them were professors. She even shared the photos of the team on her Facebook page.

The happy Ukrainian couple has already given names to their babies: Aleksandra, Dariya, Denis, Vladislav and David.

The unique mother said that her husband was shocked to find out that they were going to have 5 kids. They discovered the surprising fact during the first ultrasound check, reported.

The pair has one child already, a 3-year-old daughter. Thus, now they are parents of 6 kids.

Odessa officials gifted new parents with a 5-bedroom apartment to settle their giant family. They should probably supply them with a free babysitter or two as well. Odessa’s mayor Gennadiy Trukhanov stated that bringing up 5 little kids is a hard job and promised “big support” for the celebrity parents, reported.

The new mother Oksana Kobeletskaya thanked people for their support on her VK page.

Thanks to modern medicine has become possible now to nurse such kids. I am glad that kids are alive and healthy. Though a hard work is waiting for the parents – it’s not easy to pay attention to 5 children at once and at the same time not to forget about the oldest daughter.


In my opinion that’s just a miracle! I can’t imagine how it was hard to woman to give birth to five babies at once. But the happiness of being mum is the strongest feeling, and to be mum of five babies is a gift of God.


Wow! It’s a miracle! My best wishes to new born babies! And congratulations to new parents! I’m a mom and I’m sure to be a mom and a dad for five little kids is a real challenge. All these sleepless nights, first teeth, and you should imagine that all these boys and girls will have their own temper…But on the other side the sweetest sound of five babies’ laughter will fill up their home! When they’ll grow up they will be like five best friends to their parents. I’m a bit jealous.


Having children is always great! Such story happens once a decate! I think it’s a gift to have five babies at once! Thanks God all babies feel well. Now happy parents need to bring up all their six children. It is hard work and they need all their patience and love.


It is so difficult to be a mother, and this woman is now a mother of 6 children! I think, that she deserves our admiration! Wish her patience to raise those adorable quintuplets! Let they be healthy and strong. Motherhood is the best thing that can ever happen to a woman.
