For the staff of the Maternity Ward at St Jude Hospital, 2017 has started with double the excitement over the birth of two sets of twins in as many days, during the first week of the New Year.
The first set of twins was born on January 5, 2017 to Tannisha Jules of Grand Ravine, Dennery. The bouncing baby boys were delivered at approximately 1:02pm and 1:06pm weighing five pounds five ounces and five pounds three ounces respectively.
One nurse explained that Jules did not perform an ultrasound during her pregnancy and so she too was taken by surprise to learn that she was having twins instead of a single baby.
At approximately 9:47pm the following day (January 6, 2017) the second set of twins was delivered via cesarean section. However this time, the nurses had more time to prepare.
Mother, who hails from Vieux Fort had performed an ultrasound and was eagerly awaiting the arrival of her two bundles of joy. The first baby was delivered at 9:46pm weighing four pounds, seven ounces. One minute later at 9:47 pm he was joined into the world by his sister who tipped the scale at four pounds six ounces.
Both mothers and their babies have been discharged from the hospital and are all doing well.
