The last quintuplet birth had also occurred at the hospital.

Like other multiples, the newborns are smaller and lighter than average single babies but have no health problems, the hospital said.

The parents, both 30, are Army captains serving in the 17th Army Division.

The mother became pregnant with the help of artificial insemination. Initially she conceived six babies but miscarried one.
