A Ghanaian mother of five who recently gave birth to quintuplets has appealed to the public to help her take care of her children because she struggles to make ends meet.
According to Pulse Ghana, Madam Helen Tettey, 37, gave birth to the five girls at a hospital in the West African nation’s Eastern Region. The babies were delivered between Tuesday and Wednesday. The babies have since been incubated.
The mother of ten told Angel News that a pregnancy scan initially determined she was carrying triplets. But she was informed about the two additional babies after she underwent a cesarean section as a result of some complications.
“I am troubled because I wasn’t expecting anything like this to happen. I don’t know what to do,” she said, adding that taking care of the children will be a challenge for her and her partner due to financial constraints.
She also said that the man she shares her first five children with had died, and that has made her face difficulties with regard to taking care of the kids.
“I want people to help me take care of the kids. I can’t take care of them by myself alone. I want them to support in their feeding, schooling and health,” Madam Helen said.
Meanwhile, the grandmother of the quintuplets expressed her joy with their births, saying it was surprising and God’s divine will, Onua Online reported.
