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.

She 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.
