In a rare event, a family from Córdoba welcomed quadruplets. They are three girls and a boy: Laura, Angeline, Victoria and Jonás, who join their four older daughters. The probability of quadruplets being born spontaneously is one in 700,000 birthswhich makes this case truly exceptional.

The newborns, who came into the world prematurely, are currently on respirators at the Brigadier General Juan Bautista Bustos Provincial Maternity Hospital, but they show signs of steady improvement. The girls weighed between 1,300 and 1,425 grams at 30 weeks of gestation, while the boy weighed 1,670 grams.

“All four are fine, within what is expected for a premature baby. It is something quite rare to see,” he said in conversation with Chain 3 the director of the Maternity Hospital, Luis Ahumada. “They are on respirators, but at what we call low parameters,” he added.

The mother is in good health after childbirth. “The mother is very well, we had placed her in intensive care as a precaution, to improve and have better control,” Ahumada explained.

As indicated by the director of the Maternity Hospital, the father is surprised and happy with the arrival of the quadruplets. “The dad is very surprised, between happy and shocked“Ahumada commented.

Before the birth, the parents already knew the exact number of babies they were expecting thanks to the close monitoring of a team specialized in fetal medicine. “They knew exactly how they were going to be born and the small problems that one of them had,” concluded the specialist.
