An Eritrean mother whose surgery-aided delivery was handled at Keren Hospital yesterday gave birth to quadruplets, 1 boy and 3 girl babies. Keren City, 4 August 2012 – An Eritrean mother whose surgery-aided delivery was handled at Keren Hospital yesterday gave birth to quadruplets, 1 boy and 3 girl babies.
The weights of the 30-weeks-old babies, now in incubator, varies from 870 grams to 1.4 Kg and are reportedly in good health status.
Mrs. Jeddah Nesredin Mohammed-Ali, the 34-year-old mother, said that it was her first labor in the 7 years of her marriage, and disclosed that she has approached various doctors due to serious fertility concern. “Now, this is a blessing that money can’t buy,” she added.
Dr. Li’elti Gebresilasie, maternity specialist at Keren Hospital, explained that the reason why the delivery process demanded surgical support was due to signs of tough pregnancy such as increased blood pressure and the like. She further explained that fertility-aiding medicines could cause delivery of triplets and quadruplets.
Dr. Tekle Tsegai, medical director of the hospital, explained that there exist adequate machines, skill and environment for the development of early born infants.
