A Nigerian woman, Susan Egenti recently became a mother after 16 years of marriage without a child.
She gave birth at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, Abuja. The 44-year-old woman gave birth through a cesarean section on November 6, 2019, for many women the joy of motherhood is something to look forward to.
Meanwhile, others have been lucky not having to wait for a child, the same cannot be said for Susan’s journey to motherhood has not been easy.
She gave birth to a set of quintuplets on November 6, 2019. She described the birth of her babies as a pure blessing from God as it was her first and only pregnancy since she got married in 2003.
Her babies, quintuplets, three boys and two baby girls were placed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital and are reportedly strong and healthy.
According to online reporters, the nurses stated that four of the babies were born healthy, measuring the average weight of a newborn, except one who was underweight and was weighed 1.9 Kg.
During her interview with the online journalist, Egenti stated that within her 16 years of marriage, she had taken all medical options (except IVF) to get pregnant but couldn’t until she had the quintuplets.
She even turned to traditional/herbal remedies to conceive but that also failed, leaving her in never-ending despair. Then God took over and Susan’s desire was fulfilled
