In a rare phenomenon a 28-year-old woman gave birth to quadruplets (two male and two female babies) at a private infertility clinic on Tuesday morning. The babies born premature weighed about one kg each and were immediately rushed to a neo-natal intensive care unit at another child speciality hospital.

The woman was taking infertility treatment from infertility specialist and gynaecologist Dr Abhilasha Chaturvedi. The babies were born through In-Vitro Fertlisation (IVF) procedure.

Married for about five years the lady failed to conceive after which she took IVF treatment under Dr Chaturvedi. "During counselling at the 'Manushi Mangal' counselling centre at our hospital we found that the lady was underweight due to crash dieting and had other gynaecological problems due to which she failed to conceive in the first five years of marriage. The other doctors failed to locate her real problem. Some even prescribed TB medicines but she could not conceive. However, after a successful IVF procedure here at the hospital she conceived and gave birth to quadruplets," said Dr Abhilasha Chaturvedi.

Dr Chaturvedi said we came to know about the quadruplets in the initial phase of pregnancy and advised her complete bed rest.

The babies were born premature because she failed to take certain precautions which also included early hospitalisation. "But still all the four babies are normal and alive, which is a great achievement for Allahabad. The procedure is also a boon for childless couples," she added. "The babies have now been kept under the supervision of Dr Jaiwardhan Rai," she informed.
