Maame Cynthia, a 45-year-old woman welcomed her bundle of joy, two girls and three boys at Sam-J Specialist Hospital at Haatso in Accra.
She is a Ghanaian woman who has been married for 20 years without a child and has been blessed with five babies (quintuplets). The babies were conceived through in-vitro fertilization.
In an exclusive interview with Adom News’ Kojo Hagan, the joyous mother said she is still in shock.
She revealed how two of her “impatient” husbands divorced her due to inability to conceive. She emphasized that, it did not deter her from hoping to celebrate her marriage. So when she remarried and was facing the problem, she trusted God and the miracle happened.
She said through the support of doctors and nurses at the Sam-J Specialist Hospital, she can smile at the storm.
Maame Cynthia urged women struggling to have children to be inspired by her story and have faith in God. Meanwhile, a gynecologist at the hospital, DCOP Samuel Amo-Mensah (Rtd) was happy the IVF was successful.
DCOP Samuel Amo-Mensah (Rtd) said the five babies are under observation in incubators to ensure they don’t get any infections. He also said, “Mother and babies are doing incredible; we are so happy with how everything turned out”
DCOP Samuel Amo-Mensah (Rtd) said IVF is bringing relief to a lot of Ghanaian homes but the only challenge is the high taxes on imported drugs for the treatment. He appealed to the government to reduce the taxes on IVF drugs to make the treatment more accessible to the couple in need.
