Tuesday, May 12, 2020 – A coupe in Naivasha welcomed quadruplets at the Naivasha Sub-County Hospital last week.
Teresia Wanjiru Mwangi and Ezekiel Karuri Ndegwa welcomed the four bundles of joy two years after they lost their first two children – a boy and a girl – ‘leaving them in pain and lots of unanswered questions’
“Our family, friends, and church stood by us.”
“It was very difficult for us. We thank God for answering our prayers,” Mr. Karuri said.
“It has been tough for our family after losing our young babies but the Lord has repaid us in double and the process of raising them now starts,” Wanjira said.
The mother, who is a housewife, is aware of the challenges of raising quadruplets and has appealed for assistance from well-wishers.
Her husband is a Jua Kali artisan.
According to the Hospital Superintendent, Dr. Angeline Ithondeka, the newborns are in good health apart from one who required to be assisted with oxygen.
She also revealed that they had been monitoring the mother for months before the cesarean operation.
“We are recording around 25 births in this facility every day and this one stands out as it’s the first time we have recorded quadruplets, which is also a blessing,” she said.
