Baby-birth gives memorable moments to every couple. The joy gets multiplied when they are having twins!
This couple from the Czech Republic became parents recently. Alexandra and Antonin were thrilled to know that they would be having more than one baby. However, when the doctor asked for another checkup, an unbelievable reality unfolded itself.
Tradition of Twins
An Interesting fact to note here is that both of their families have a history of twins! They not only joined the family tradition but created a new one!
A Number You Can’t Believe!
After getting the news from the doctor, the couple prepared themselves to welcome two new members in the family. Little did they know that a bigger surprise was awaiting them. The numbers were going to change!
When Alexandra went for a re-diagnosis to the doctor, she heard something which she could not imagine in the wildest of her dreams. The doctor told her that she was pregnant with four babies! After some months, through an ultrasound report, they got to know that there were five babies!
Choosing the Risk
“When we finally found a fifth head, I started to cry,” she said. The 23-year-old lady had an option to terminate this, but the brave-hearted lady decided to continue.
Since she was delivering five babies, the chances of complications were high. The doctor made sure that there were twice as people to assist with the delivery. There were 40 people to support at the time of delivery. The delivery was successful with four boys and a girl putting their first steps in the world. The baby boys were named Daniel, Michael, Alex, and Martin; the girl was named Tereza.
Dr. Alena Mechurova said, “In our country (birth) statistics have been recorded since 1949 and there’s no mention of quintuplets. In the Czech Republic quintuplets are born on average once every 480 years.”
Thankfully Alexandra and all five babies are healthy. The world waits for the quintuples to grow up!
