- A mother of 12 in Kaduna gave birth to quadruplets at home without assistance from anyone
- The 30-year-old woman identified as Zainab Hassan did not also go for antenatal because the nearest hospital to her is far away
- Zainab never went for antenatal for all the pregnancies she had carried
A 30-year-old mother of 12 in Kaduna state identified as Zainab Hassan has delivered quadruplets without healthcare.
When Zainab went into labour, she delivered her babies at home herself because the nearest hospital is far away, and she can only reach it via commercial canoes and then bike, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the mother of 12 who has had twins in the course of childbearing never went for antenatal for all the pregnancies she had carried.
She said: “I have been giving birth to twins in this village without going for any medical checks. This time I delivered all four kids at my husband’s house without any assistance from anyone."
Zainab said she went through serious pains and stress, adding that it is not really easy giving birth to quadruplets in a village without any support.
She added that she always used traditional medicine from local vendors whenever she was feeling pain.
Mallam Mohammadu Hassan, Zainab's husband, expressed happiness over his wife's safe delivery, but called on the state government to complete the community’s hospital project that has been abandoned for years.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that after welcoming a set of twins on March 13, a single mother in Florida identified as Alexzandria Wolliston welcomed another set of twins on December 27, 2019, the same year as the first.
Wolliston, who said she never thought she would have two, added that she believes the boys were a gift, after learning that both of her grandmothers lost twin boys at birth.
The new set of twins, Kaylen and Kaleb, were born prematurely at 34 weeks.
She said: "I always say that I feel like my grandmothers gave me their kids because two sets of twins and their twins passed away. I feel like they just sent them down for me."
