Quadruplets Leave Hospital in Ecuador

QUITO – The quadruplets born last month in Ecuador have been released from the hospital and are “in very good condition,” Isidro Ayora Maternity Hospital director Humberto Navas said Monday.

The babies, who were born on Jan. 9, were allowed to go home on Saturday, Navas told Efe.

The quadruplets’ parents are from southern Ecuador, but they are staying in Quito until the babies undergo a medical check-up on Wednesday, Navas said.

The babies – all boys – were born by Cesarean section in the 31st week of pregnancy.

The quadruplets’ mother, Digna Moran, had to undergo the C-section when her blood pressure rose to a high level.

Three of the babies, who were conceived naturally, weighed 1,500 grams (about 3 lbs, 5 oz.) at birth and the fourth weighed 1,300 grams (2 1/2 lbs).

Three of the babies were on one placenta and the fourth was on another.

Moran, 22, and the quadruplets’ father, Edgar Godos, 25, are from Loja, a province in southern Ecuador. EFE
