Satkhira, Oct 22 (UNB) – Many couples in this overpopulated country long for years to have babies, but remain childless and curse themselves. But, a couple in Sadar upzila has been blessed with four babies at one birth!
Though poor, the couple -- Shariful Islam and Runa Parvin -- is celebrating the birth of the four babies – three sons and one daughter.
Shariful Islam said his wife Runa Parvin was taken to Sadar Hospital on Monday after she went into labour where doctors referred her to Khulna Medical College Hospital (KMCH).
As they took her to the KMCH, doctors described her condition as critical and asked them to send her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital, he said.
However, Runa’s family took her to a private hospital in the district town of Satkhira where she gave birth to three boys and one girl through caesarean section around 2am, Shariful said.
However, doctors said the mother and her four children are not fully well.
