There was an incredible event in this woman’s life. The ultrasound confirmed that she was having twins. But Maria, who lives in Norway, gave birth to quintuplets.
It was a big surprise for the whole family and for the doctors too.
Maria had even chosen names for twins, but the list of names had to expand. Two daughters and three sons: the boys were called Michel, Denis and David and the girls Nina and Dina.
The 37-year-old woman gave birth by cesarean section and all five babies were healthy.
“It wasn’t a very difficult operation, but it wasn’t easy carrying so many little ones for 32 weeks. They have magnificent health and their weight is 1100 to 1800 grams,” said one of the doctors.
According to doctors, a similar case in the country occurred 10 years ago. They explained that it was very difficult to preserve quintuplets without medical intervention and modern technology, because often this is done with the help of modern technology.
The mother and her babies were sent home as soon as the newborns’ weight exceeded two kilos.
However, Maria’s case was a natural process. The woman believed that her quintuplets are a gift from God.
“I was stunned, since I thought I would have twins. There has never been a similar case in our family and in my husband’s family,” Maria said.
The couple also have an older daughter aged three. It is not easy to take care of and raise so many children.
But, the couple was sure they would manage. The local authorities offered them a new apartment. And, the residents of the city also always give a helping hand to this big family.
