Sabeen Maternity and Child Hospital in the Capital Sana’a has witnessed the birth of triplets to a woman in her mid-40s, carried out by caesarean section.
Dr. Magda al-Khatib, director of the Sabeen hospital, told Saba News Agency that a mother has successfully given birth to triplets.
The babies weigh between 1,500 and 2,000 grams, and have left the hospital in good health.
The doctor noted that the mother comes from the Directorate of Bani al-Harith, and already had five children before the birth of the three newborns, two girls and a boy.
Al-Khatib noted that the efforts of the medical team that conducted the operation, headed by consultant obstetrician and obstetrician Dr. Munira Al-Faher, and obstetricians Saher Thamer and Iman Al-Montaser, were highly successful.
During the past year, the hospital has witnessed the birth of 181 twins through both natural birth and caesarean sections, the most recent of which is the birth of conjoined twins Ahmed and Mohammed al-Bukhiti, she said.
The hospital provided its services to the mother and child despite the difficulties it faced by the reduced support of jumanitarian organisations and the detaining of oil ships by the Saudi-led coalition.
