A Bangladeshi woman,20,surprised everyone by giving birth to twins just after one month of her first child birth.
Arifa Sultana, 20, gave birth to a baby boy last month through normal delivery, but doctors missed the presence of a second uterus.
“She didn’t realise she was still pregnant with the twins. Her waters broke again 26 days after the first baby was born and she rushed to us,” Sheila Poddar, a gynaecologist who treated the woman, told news agency AFP.
The doctors carried out an emergency cesarean section and safely got one boy and one girl – last Friday.
The young woman from Jessore district in southwest Bangladesh was allowed to go home with her three healthy babies on Tuesday. Podder said there were no complications.
“I haven’t seen any case like this in my 30-year plus medical career,” Dilip Roy, chief government doctor in Jessore, said.
She told news agency AFP her husband earns barely 6,000 taka ($70) a month as a labourer. “I don’t know how we will manage such a huge responsibility with this little amount.”
The young mother and her husband belongs to a poor family and are worried about how to bring up their kids although they consider the rare triplets as God’s gift.
