A surrogate mother in Phoenix, Arizona, has given birth to quintuplets. Teresa Anderson, a married mother of two, waived her US$15,000 fee for Luisa Gonzalez and Enrique Morena. “With all their financial burden right now I don’t think they need any more,” she said. The five boys were delivered seven weeks early by Caesarean section. All are in good condition, although one will need heart surgery. The couple originally contacted Mrs Anderson through an internet surrogacy service. She agreed to have five of the couple’s embryos implanted in her womb, in the hope that at least one would survive. In the event, all of them did.
