Two sets of sextuplets have been born less than a day apart in different US states.

Fertility experts say the rare occurrence could become increasingly common as more couples seek artificial methods of conceiving babies.

Brianna Morrison, 24, who used fertility drugs, gave birth late on Sunday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

About 10 hours later, Jenny Masche, 32, who used artificial insemination, gave birth yesterday in Phoenix by Caesarean section, the first successful sextuplet delivery in Arizona.

“It is something that we’re going to be dealing with more and more,” unless doctors learn how to reduce the risk of women having four or more babies, said Dr F Sessions Cole, a paediatrics professor at Washington University in St Louis.
