The young lady was stunned as she thought she would initially give birth to three babies.
Giving birth on 37th week

“I went for a scan when I was around four months pregnant and another when I was eight months pregnant. The scan showed that I was pregnant with three kids in both instances. However, in the eighth month, I was admitted because I was unstable.
On the 37th week, I gave birth to four babies, which amazed me. Luckily, they had no complications like my previous delivery,” she said.
Losing child to pneumonia after two days
Mugai said she had given birth to twins eight years ago, but unfortunately, one of the pair died.
She said the little one developed complications and died after two days because of pneumonia.
“It was heartbreaking, but thank God one survived, and now we have an eight-year-old child. We decided to wait for our child to grow so that we could also heal and take time to tink about the future. There was no rush,” she said.
Challenges of raising quadruplets
Despite a few challenges, the Embu woman expressed joy in seeing the four babies grow well, three girls and a boy.
“There are challenges like diapers and shopping for the house since my husband is the only breadwinner. I am currently not working because we cannot afford to pay a househelp to babysit our kids for now,” she said.
