A 22 year old in Bomet gave birth to four babies at Tenwek Mission Hospital.
Faith Chepng’etich delivered two boys and two girls who weigh between 1.1 and 1.4 kg and will be placed inside an incubator for a period of two months in order to add weight.
The medics also confirmed the babies were born without any complications other than the underweight.
“The mother is doing well, she can walk around without any complication, the challenge is in her diet, which we are working on,” a medic said.
Faith intimated her fears of not being to offset the medical bill because she and her newborn children will have to stay in hospital longer than she expected.
“My husband is not employed, I have another child at home, we sometimes sleep on empty stomachs, now I don’t know,” the downbeat new mother said.
