PHOENIX, Arizona (AP) -- The mother of one of two sets of sextuplets born within 10 hours of each other suffered acute heart failure shortly after the delivery but was stable Tuesday, doctors said.
The heart problems were due to the huge volume of blood that Jenny Masche, 32, was carrying in her body while pregnant, Dr. John Elliott said at a news conference at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center. When the babies were delivered Monday, some of the extra blood was lost and "stretched her heart and blood vessels to a very, very critical level," Elliott said.
"So for a while she was very sick."
The babies, three girls and three boys, are in stable condition. Five had been put on ventilators after birth, but now all but one are breathing on their own, doctors said.
Doctors put Masche in the intensive care unit and gave her medication. She was expected to be out of the ICU by Wednesday.

The sextuplets were born 10 hours after Brianna Morrison, 24, gave birth in Minnesota to another set. The Masches used artificial insemination, and Morrison used fertility drugs.
The Morrison sextuplets remained critical Tuesday, a normal condition for such small babies.
New father Bryan Masche joined doctors at the Arizona news conference to talk about his wife's health and to gush over the six tiny additions to his family.
"They're amazing: 10 fingers, 10 toes," he said. "They have little fingernails and perfectly shaped little ears."
The sextuplets were almost 10 weeks premature and weighed between 2 pounds, 1 ounce and 3 pounds.
After getting six kids in one day, Bryan Masche said, he and his wife are happy with the size of their family.
"This is it," he said. "I don't want any more kids."

I agree if it's natural, you cannot decide these and is probably passed on in genes. But, sometimes, the parents decide, if they are going for some help..if you catcb my drift of thought. My cousin's cousin was "trying" and could not get pregnant, so went for Doctor's help and she decided to have twins to "get it over with" in one go and asked the Doctors to make it two.. ;)

Minnesota sextuplet dies, 5 siblings in critical condition


MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- A sextuplet born prematurely to a Minnesota couple has died, and his five siblings were in critical condition, hospital officials said Thursday.
Bennet Ryan Morrison died Wednesday night, and the other babies remained in critical condition Thursday at the neonatal intensive care unit at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.
The Minnesota sextuplets, born Sunday, were one of two sets born within 10 hours of each other this week. In Arizona, Jenny and Brian Masche became parents to six babies on Monday. Doctors say it was a rare occurrence, but one that could become increasingly common as more couples seek artificial methods of conceiving babies.
Parents Ryan and Brianna Morrison, of St. Louis Park, issued a statement Thursday expressing thanks for the support of families, friends and churches and for the work of hospital staff.
"Our faith remains strong in the midst of mourning our son," the Morrisons said.
The Morrisons, both 24, spent more than a year trying to conceive before Brianna Morrison started taking fertility drugs, and had success with the drug Follistim, according to the couple's personal Web site.
The Morrison sextuplets -- four boys and two girls -- were born about 4½ months early. Their weights ranged from between 11 ounces to 1 pound, 3 ounces, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
