25-Year-Old Young Mom Gives Birth to Quintuplets
A young mother who went into hospital expecting to give birth to one baby was more than a little surprised just over half an hour later when she had five daughters. When Manita Singh was rushed into hospital at just 26 weeks pregnant after she began to complain of labour pains, she feared the worse.
The 25-year-old had lost her first son shortly after he was born two years earlier, and she now faced the prospect of losing this baby as well. At 11am, the doctors at the local government hospital in Ambikapur, in Chhattisgarh in eastern India, delivered the first little girl naturally at 11am – swiftly followed by her four sisters.
