A joyful event took place on July 23 at the Perinatal Center of St. Petersburg Pediatric University. 37-year-old Oksana Morozova had four babies at once: three boys and one girl. According to doctors, the most unusual thing is that a woman became pregnant for the first time naturally, and not with the help of I.V.F.
Despite the fact that Oksana had long dreamed of a child, this pregnancy was unplanned, one might even say spontaneous. And when the ultrasound showed that she would have not one baby, but four, the expectant mother was simply shocked.
Initially, Oksana was observed in the antenatal clinic at the place of residence. But after it became known about the quadruple, it was registered by specialists of the perinatal center of St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University.
At a gestational age of 32 weeks, the expectant mother was placed in the prenatal ward for preservation in order to avoid premature birth. She spent three weeks at the Perinatal Center: the doctors managed to prolong the pregnancy so that Oksana would bring the babies to the optimal term for them.
And so, on July 23 at 10:00 in the morning, as a result of a ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, the long-awaited babies were born – three boys and one girl.
According to the doctors, all four were born with a good Apgar score (an international system for rapid assessment of the condition of newborns). They all breathe on their own. The total weight of the children is almost 7 kilograms.
The smallest turned out to be a girl, weighing 1 kg 540 gr. Trinity of bigger brothers: 1 kg 580 gr, 1 kg 870 gr and 1 kg 930 gr. However, until the weight of each reaches at least 3 kg, all four will be in the hospital under the supervision of doctors.
By the way, for the Perinatal Center of St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University, which has been operating for 6 years, this is the first case of the birth of four babies at the same time. But, as the doctors joke, now they already have experience and they will be waiting for the appearance of five or more babies.
