Rare identical triplets born in California

Doctors at a Northern California hospital say a woman has given birth to an extremely rare set of naturally conceived identical triplets, Sky News reports.

Abby, Brin and Laurel Hepner were born on November 22 at Sutter Memorial Hospital to Hannah and Tom Hepner, who live in Quincy.

The triplets were produced when a single, fertilized egg split into three.

Dr William Gilbert, director of Sutter Women's Services, said the odds of producing identical triplets without fertility drugs range from one in one million to one in 100 million.

He said the rarity makes it difficult to more accurately calculate the frequency of such births.

Abby weighed 1,4 kg; Brin 1,6 kg and Laurel 1,8 kg.

The triplets are still in the hospital until they can maintain body temperature and eat properly.
