Woman Gives Birth to Octuplets in California

A woman has given birth to eight babies in a hospital south of Los Angeles, the world's second live-born set of octuplets.

Dr. Karen Maples told KCAL-TV that the babies were born Monday at Kaiser Permanante and were "doing quite well."

The hospital says the mother, who asked not to be identified, gave birth to six girls and two boys weighing between 1.8 pounds and 3.4 pounds.

Dr. Harold Henry told KCAL that "they were all screaming and kicking around very vigorously."

The last set of live-born octuplets were born in Texas and turned 10 last month.
