Nigerian Woman Give Birth to Quadruplets

Mother Gives Birth to Two Sets of Twins

Women undergoing fertility treatments usually aren't surprised when the result is multiple fetuses. In some cases, it is a welcome gift as the dream of a large family is instantly fulfilled.

For a 40–year–old Nigerian woman, her hopes of becoming a mother came true times four. Teacher Nelly Itula gave birth to an extraordinary set of quadruplets — identical twin girls and fraternal twin boys. Fertility drug-induced multiple pregnancies often result in fraternal twins as numerous embryos are implanted as treatment. Rarely do women have identical twins AND fraternal twins.

Best wishes to the new family of six!
