Jane Nandala, a mother who gave birth to four children from
Tsekululu Sub County in Namisindwa district said she thought the babies were
three as it showed in the first scan that she had months ago but not four.
She said it was unfortunate that all the four children died hours
after she delivered.

Sauda Nambozo the officer in charge of the maternity ward at Bududa hospital
said it was the first time for a mother to give birth to more than two
children in the Bududa hospital but said
it normal more especially when the mother releases more than one egg to be fertilized.
added that that in such a case as has happened, when these eggs later undergo cell division, they can divide into
more than two fetuses.

Suza Irong the nursing officer also attached to the maternity ward however attributed the death of the babies to delays to attend antenatal services.
She said if that mother had started attending antenatal clinic in
time, they would have had a way of knowing how many children she was bearing and
could have saved the children.
She appealed to other mothers to always attend antenatal
services so that they don’t fall victims of such circumstance.
