Nyc Woman Gives Birth To Four Girls

Compiled From Wire Services

A 30-year-old woman beat the odds to give birth to identical quadruplet girls without using fertility drugs.

“You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery,” said Dr. Gary Steinman, who delivered Iris Borges’ four daughters by Caesarean section at Long Island Jewish Medical Center on Friday.

The infants were born seven weeks premature.

Steinman figured a quadruple birth occurs only once in every 11 million births. Iris Borges was not taking fertility drugs, he said.
