A Woman Gives Birth To 5 Children

A woman identified as Mutesi Sofiat, 37, from Kibale Sub County Namutumba District has surprised villagers after giving birth to quintuplets, two boys and three girls.

A woman who’s said to have given birth to twins then later triplets entered labour ward this time around at Ivukula Health Centre III on Saturday night at around 9:00pm and few minutes after, she gave birth to a baby boy (of 1.5kgs).

The doctors however observed a complication with suspicion of more than one baby and quickly rushed her in an ambulance to Nakavule Hospital located in Iganga District.

According to madam Babine Maureen, a midwife at Nakavule Hospital in Iganga, when Ms Sofiat arrived at the health centre, she gave birth to her second child at around 11pm, a girl of 1.5 kgs.

After a few minutes, she again delivered a baby boy and finally two girls weighing 1.6kgs and 1.3kgs respectively.

This is truly a miracle because she had a normal delivery and all her 5 children are in good health, they are given glucose every after three hours and they breastfeed very well.
