A MOTHER from a village in Morobe was feeling on top of the world yesterday after giving birth to a set of triplets at the Angau Memorial Hospital in Lae.
The face of Jenny James, 39, from Baindua village in Nawaeb, was glowing with happiness as the nurses presented the three babies – two boys and a girl – to her. The babies were delivered by gynaecologist Dr Magdalene Juangre at the hospital’s maternity ward at about 9am.
The two boys weighed 2.8kg and 2.35kg while the girl weighed 2.9kg.
Juangre said the first boy had a “bridge birth” – in which his legs came out first. The second boy had a “vertex birth” (normal birth) where the head came out first. Their sister was a “transverse birth” where they had to turn the baby around for a bridge birth.
Hospital’s media officer Desney Koimo said: “The babies were placed under a warmer before being reunited with their mother.”
James has five other children – a pair of twins plus three siblings.
