REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - Bagus (37 years) was thrilled when he found out that his wife, Enita Fentrikana (31 years) gave birth five twins or quintuplets, four boys and one girl. All babies were born prematurely in Harapan Kita Hospital, Jakarta on Tuesday night.
"My wife gave birth by caesarean section," Bagus said recently.
Bagus and Fentrikana followed a program of fertilization assisted by Harapan Kita Hospital in 2012. Fentrikana was consumed some fertility drugs during the program.
Apparently, fertility drugs could make five egg cells was mature in her body simultaneously. Fentrikana underwent periods of normal pregnancy, though she worried about the weigh of babies in her womb.
Fentrikana was bleeding in sixth months of pregnancy and her gynecologist decided to conduct caesarean surgery. All babies have complete organs. However, due to premature birth, those babies are underweight and weak so they must be treated in NICU. Their second baby, Muhammad Hafidz, only survived for few hours. The next day the baby girl passed away.
