A woman gave birth to quadruplets at a private hospital in the district town on Saturday.
Family members of Nasrin Akhter Brishti, wife of Md Mohon of Ujjalpur area, are celebrating the birth of the four babies – a daughter and three sons.
Meanwhile, the newborns were not fully well due to premature birth.
“As their physical condition deteriorated, the babies were referred to Dhaka Shishu Hospital,” said paediatric Karnajit Mazumder of Goodhill Complex Hospital.
Brishti’s elder brother Md Azad said that following labour pain, her sister was admitted to the hospital in the evening where she gave birth to a girl and three boys.
They were kept at the ICU considering their health condition, he said.
Karnajit said the newborns were suffering from respiratory problem because of their premature birth and light weight.
