A 30-year-old mother of 12 identified as Zainab Abu of Makwalla community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, reportedly gave birth to quadruplets in her home without help from anyone.
Recounting the experience, Zainab said the absence of a counsellor denied her the opportunity to space her children. She further told Vanguard that the distance between her home and the nearest health centre, made her abandon medical check-ups during all the pregnancies she had carried over the years.
“I have been giving birth to twins in this village without going for any medical checks. This time I delivered all four kids at my husband’s house without any assistance from anyone.
“I have gone through serious pains, stress and, indeed, its not really easy giving birth to these four kids in a village without any support. But to God be the glory, I am fine.
“I always used traditional medicine and other drugs from local vendors, whenever I feel pain in my body.”
Zainab’s husband, Mallam Mohammadu Hassan expressed happiness over the new addition to his family. He also thanked God for Zainab’s safe delivery of the quadruplets.
