A front-page article about a South Buffalo family with seven children, including a set of twins, and is now expecting triplets interviews Paul Ogburn, MD, clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology, about how unusual it is for a woman to give birth to twins and then triplets. "It's certainly not highly likely, but if there's a tendency to have multiple ovulations, it may be more likely for someone who's had twins to have triplets," he said.
