LEIPZIG, Germany, Jan. 11 (UPI) — Doctors in Germany said a woman who gave birth to identical quadruplets beat odds of about one in 13 million.

Doctors at Leipzig Hospital said the mother, whose name was not released, beat the daunting odds when she became pregnant with quadruplets Laura, Sophie, Jasmin and Kim without the help of artificial insemination and it was near miraculous that the pregnancy made it to the 28th week without complications, The Local.de reported Tuesday.

The girls were born 10 weeks early, doctors said.

“They came through the early birth astoundingly well,” a hospital spokeswoman said.

Leipzig Mayor Burkhard Jung, who was made the girls’ godfather, visited the infants Tuesday.

“Crazy,” Jung said of the quadruplets. “It is simply unbelievable. The most beautiful thing is that everything is complete. In short — all are healthy.”
