At only 26 weeks of pregnancy, this mom-to-be started having labor pains. And not long after being admitted to a local Indian hospital, Manita Singh began giving birth. But the premature birth was far from the most shocking thing.
Doctors delivered not one, not two, but five babies she was carrying. Manita originally thought she was only carrying one child. But she never had an ultrasound, hence the major surprise at the hospital.

It was a happy surprise for her husband, Mahesh Singh.
"I am extremely grateful to God for blessing us with not one but five children," Mahesh said. "We were heartbroken when we lost our first child, a son, immediately after birth two years ago. I believe God has compensated the loss."
The doctors are keeping a close eye on the newborns, as they were all born weighing barely 3 pounds each. But the mother and babies are all stable, and hopefully will remain as healthy as they can be.
