Multiple births like this one make headlines, but they're also risky. Often, some babies don't survive and those who do may have health problems.
Now scientists in Britain say they've come up with a technique to further reduce multiple births by women undergoing in-vitro fertilization. IVF already offers doctors more control than other fertility procedures.
These researchers though say their system can better detect abnormalities in a woman's eggs so they can implant only the good ones. That could eventually double a woman's chances of getting pregnant and allow doctors to implant fewer embryos.
New hope for women longing for a little mouth to feed - but maybe not eight of them.
