Mother Of 13 Gives Birth To Quadruplets In Zaria
The woman, a resident of Zaria, who gave birth on Friday said the set of quadruplets is her eighth delivery.
Hauwa’u and the babies were transferred to the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) for better care.
She, however, revealed that the only male among the quadruplets died before they arrived ABUTH.
The woman said the remaining three infants have been placed under observation at the pediatrics care unit, while she is receiving medical care at the maternity ward.
According to Hauwa’u, she received two bags of blood during the delivery process, saying;
I am very healthy and strong but the medical experts advised that I need to be monitored very well before they can discharge me.
Her husband, Sulaiman Mohammed, stated that his wife had given birth to a set of triplets twice; a set of twins two times, and three babies at different times before the quadruplets.
Mohammed, who works as a driver, expressed gratitude to Allah for the wonderful gift of the babies.
He noted that his older brother assisted him with the children whenever the need arose.
Mohammed’s mother, Saudatu Haruna also said the birth of the quadruplets was not a surprise, attributing it to genetic inheritance, saying she also gave birth to a set of twins on three different occasions.
Saudatu also revealed that her mother was one of a set of triplets, while her father was a twin.
Isa Abdulkadir, the leading consultant in the pediatrics unit at ABUTH, said the three babies were in good condition.
