source: wikipedia: The Dionne quintuplets, born on May 28, 1934, are the first quintuplets known to survive their infancy. They remain to this day the only female identical set ever recorded. The sisters were born just outside Callander, Ontario, Canada in the village of Corbeil. The surviving quintuplets prefer to be referred to as the Dionne sisters instead of quintuplets.
The Dionne girls were born two months premature with the assistance of Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe and two midwives, Madame Legros and Madame Lebel.
