Woman expecting one baby gives birth to five

A 25-year-old Indian woman who went into work Saturday despite being less than seven months pregnant feared she was about to relive the tragedy of delivering a stillborn baby that she went through two years ago, Stuff. co. nz reports.

Instead, Manita Singh was surprised to deliver a set of very premature quintuplets. She was unaware she was carrying five babies because she and husband Mahesh were unable to afford an ultrasound.

“I am extremely grateful to God for blessing us with not one but five children,” the Inquisitr quotes Mahesh as saying. “I believe God has compensated the loss" of the couple'south first child, he adds. The couple has named the girls Jiya, Jjanv, Jyoti, Jigayasa, and Janya. A priest had advised them to start each title with the letter "J," the Times of India reports. But it'south not all excellent news for what doctors declare are likely India'south "most premature" quintuplets ever. The Times of India reports the babies weigh between 2.2. and 3.3 pounds each and are being kept in intensive care because of their low birth weights. Four of the babies are suffering from jaundice. One hospital executive warns the survival rate for such premature babies is "abysmally low." If they survive, the quintuplets will get financial support from the government. Manita and Mahesh live in a single room and have the equivalent of $7.50 in their bank account. Mahesh says he hopes his new children survive and that he can allow them with a "wonderful life." (This woman was expecting triplets but gave birth to quadruplets.)
