THE Stanger Hospital maternity ward has celebrated a successful delivery of a set of triplets to mother Nomvelo Dlamini of Thembeni.

The miracle babies arrived on Tuesday, 22 August at around 9pm and this was the first time that the hospital has had an early diagnosis of a patient and did so at just two months into her pregnancy.
The already-mother-of-two gave birth to healthy baby boys, Qaphela, Simphiwe and Qaphelani.

Senior Pediatrician Dr Claudi Oudenijhuis said that the babies showed good health and weighed just less than three kilograms each which is considered normal.

“In this case the first child had difficulty breathing just after birth, but we can now confirm that the mother and her triplets are in good health,” she said.

The successful delivery was conducted by an experienced Dr Ringanayi Herbert who indicated that this was his second successful delivery of triplets as he had delivered a set of baby girl triplets previously.    
An emotional Dlamini thanked the Stanger Hospital staff for their dedication in ensuring the success of the delivery.

“Thanks to the nursing staff of the hospital who have been caring since the first day I came in,” said Dlamini.

The hospital urged anyone willing to make donations of baby items such as prams and clothing to Dlamini, to contact the hospital’s PRO on 032 437 6000.
