Couple Blessed with Quadruplets After 18 Years of Barrenness



A 44-year-old woman, Clara Dominique, who had been trying to get pregnant for 18 years, has delivered of quadruplets (3 girls and a boy) last Saturday at the Graceland Medical Centre in Benin City, Edo State.
Mrs. Clara got married in 1996 and since then she and her husband tried to conceive a child. According to her, it was God’s grace that kept her and her husband through the trials of childlessness.
She said: “My husband has been encouraging me that God will do it for us. My husband never contemplated driving me away.
“I was happy when the scan showed it was four. Sometimes I think of how I will carry the four of them. I have not seen somebody delivered four babies. It was not easy for me to carry the pregnancy. At a time the weight of the pregnancy was too much for me.”
Mrs. Clara said her parents were encouraging them all the time and that what kept them together no matter what.
“I was the one dedicating children at our church every last Sunday of the month. I was the first to visit anybody that I knew that gave birth so that I can give them what I have. I am not the jealous type,” she said.
Reportedly, one of the doctors at the hospital, Dr. Oni Samson, said the babies were delivered through cesarean section.
She said: “You don’t expect a woman that is having multiple births to do that through the vaginal. This is the first time we had quadruplets in this hospital. The children are okay. The ante-natal was uneventful. They are still under care for them to be stabilized.”
