A Czech Mother Is Pregnant With The Country’s First Naturally Conceived Quintuplets
For the first time in the Czech Republic, quintuplets made history with their birth. Moreover, 23-year-old mom Alexandra Kinova managed to get pregnant without IVF. Doctors assure them that the chances of this are extremely small – one in several million.
This morning, at the 31st week of pregnancy, the girl gave birth to quintuplets by caesarean section. As a result, the entire operation (without preparation and post-natal procedures) took literally five minutes. Both the young mother and her children felt fine.
During pregnancy, a woman, in addition to nausea in the morning, which is considered normal for women in this position, did not notice any serious complications. And she planned to breastfeed her five children, as she did with her first-born son. Alexandra herself and her husband, by the way, until last month had no idea that such an addition awaited them, especially since they already have one child.
Kinova said that despite the best efforts of the doctors, they still do not know the sex of all the babies. Two of the unborn babies are hidden underneath the other three. She said, “I very much look forward to seeing how they will look. It’s a great charm, but we cannot see anything properly – only a head or legs.”
Her quintuplets established a family history of multiples in the country. Now, the four newborn boys have been named Daniel, Michael, Alex, Martin, and the girl, Terezka.
By the way, a similar incident happened in Russia in 1998. A resident of the village of Svetly, Tyumen region, Nadezhda Yaroslavskaya, despite the ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsɪs of ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ, gave birth to five – four boys and a girl.
