It is always a joy when the child is born. But what if the quadruplets are born – four times more joy! And what if those are the first set of quadruplets born in this hospital! And the first set of quadruplets born in last 50 years and the first in Estonia during this century! Just that much joy and more was in Maternity Hospital at the Central Hospital 9th of July, when four quadruplet sisters, four healthy and pretty little girls were born.
The multiple births has grown steadily over recent years in Estonia. In the first six months of this year, there were record of 55 pairs of twins being born in Maternity Hospital at the Central Hospital. In June the set of triplets were born after the four years pause. But from the birth of the last quadruplets in Estonia more than 50 years has passed.
Although the multiple births is a growing trend also all over the world, the birth of quadruplets or quintuplets is still quite rare. According to the kliinik.ee, the probability of giving birth to multiples increases with the woman’s age and reaches its peak by the age of 35.
We congratulate brave parents and wish them a lots of love!!
