A birth that only happens once in 480 years makes history for a 23-year-old mother.
Alexandra Kinova and her husband Antonin, a couple from the Czech Republic, witnessed the miracle of life in 2013 and created history as a result of it. The couple already had a son and had always hoped to have more children, so the news that Alexandra was pregnant again brought great delight to the family.
They were looking forward to welcoming a baby brother or sister for their adorable kid. However, when they went to the hospital for the initial ultrasound, the physicians informed them that they would be having two children, not just one. The sight of the babies on the TV made their hearts jump a beat with joy.
They were overjoyed when they learned the news. They had no idea, however, that this pregnancy would be one of the most spectacular the world had ever seen. When it came time for the second ultrasound, the doctor had an even bigger surprise in store for the expecting parents. They weren’t expecting twins, but four infants instead. That astounded the parents, who never imagined they’d be able to have so many children.
The single mother was about to become a mother of five children. Or isn’t it? There seems to be more information on the way.
Alexandra’s stomach had grown so large that she drew notice everywhere she went.
During their next doctor’s appointment, the couple learned something so shocking that it rendered everyone speechless. They became a worldwide sensation, with stories in magazines from all over the world.
This incredible mother was caring for five children. One in seven million people will become pregnant and give birth to quintuplets.
Around 40 hospital staff members were present in the delivery room on the day of the delivery.
Everyone was waiting to find out the gender of the infants and see if everything would go according to plan. Thankfully, there were no issues, according to the neonatal unit’s head doctor, and they received five healthy newborns, four of whom were boys and one of whom was a girl.
The parents, who had been blessed five times, were overjoyed and sobbed tears of joy.
The ecstatic mother delivered her quintuplets through C-section, making history as the first woman in the Czech Republic to do so without using any reproductive medications.
Antonin, the father, almost missed the major event because he was stuck in traffic, but he made it just in time.
Daniel, Michael, Alex, and Martin were the names of the boys, while Terezka was the name of the small girl.
After a brief stay in the intensive care unit, the babies and their mother were ready to return home and embark on the journey that is life.
Doctor Alena Mechurova told news.com.au: “In this specific country, we have been actively recording birth statistics since 1949, and there has never been a mention of quintuplets in that time.” In fact, quintuplets are born in the Czech Republic around once every 480 years on average.” In the movie below, you can see the entire tale of one of the most spectacular and unique pregnancies ever.
