Four kids born among test tube technique
Ludhiana: Ramandeep and Ranvir make parents of these four babies in Ludhiana (January 11, 2017). The year 2017 brought not twice or thrice but four times joy and happiness for the Barnala based couple Ramandeep Kaur and Ranvir singh as they were blessed with quadruplets on December 16, 2016.
The couple had a history of infertility for seven years. They had been to many hospitals and taken treatment from numerous doctors but nothing worked. They came to Rana IVF Centre, Ludhiana in Feb 2016. Here they were counseled regarding all the treatment options and finally they were taken up for IVF in May. The patient conceived in the first cycle itself and was diagnosed to have quadruplets. As multiple pregnancy has a high risk of various complications, her pregnancy was meticulously monitored by Dr. Vijaydeep Kaur, IVF Specialist and Chief Gynaecologist at Rana IVF Centre. She was admitted to the hospital in her seventh month and was on complete bed rest so that the pregnancy could continue for as long as possible and the children would not born premature.
Due to careful diet planning, hematinics and other nutritional and hormonal support, the babies gained good weight and were delivered on December 16, 2016 at 8.2 months with birth weight of 1.8 kg, 1.46 kg, 1.34 kg and 990 grams which is a very good outcome for a quadruplet pregnancy.
