Quintuplets Born Early, But Healthy in Capital
FIVE babies were born this week to a woman whose pregnancy lasted six and a half months.“They are in good condition and are adequately developed for their age,” Jorge Ramírez, director of the public Women’s Hospital, where the babies were born, told Channel 7 TV news.The doctor, who did not specify the babies’ genders, said their mother, 32-year-old Silvia Araya, was forced to have a Caesarean section. According to Ramírez, the pregnancy could not continue because “she was always under the threat of having a miscarriage and had to stay in bed all the time.”Eight doctors participated in the operation, according to the doctor.According to medical sources, the mother chose to undergo in vitro fertilization in Panama, because in Costa Rica the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court (Sala IV) prohibited this procedure in 2000.
