KNH asks Kenyans to assist mum who delivered quadruplets


Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) has appealed to Kenyans of goodwill to assist a 31-year-old mother who on Tuesday delivered four children.

KNH marketing and communications manager Simon Ithai on Tuesday said the mother delivered the quadruplets, three girls and one boy, at the Gaichanjiru Mission Hospital in Murang’a County.

“KNH has appealed for well-wishers and Kenyans of goodwill to assist the mother preterm milk, breast milk fortifier, diapers as well as other donations for upkeep,” he said.

The mother gave birth through caesarean section and was immediately transferred to Kenyatta National Hospital.

“The pre-term babies were born at 36 weeks with low birth weight and have been placed in Kenyatta National Hospital paediatric specialized unit for further management,” he said.

Mr Ithai said this was the mother’s second birth. The mother is a housewife and her first born son is now seven years old.

“The babies are stable and significantly gaining weight,” he said.

Mr Ithai said the babies are feeding on preterm milk and breast milk fortifier because their mother cannot breastfeed all of them satisfactorily.
