Four of the babies were delivered through caesarean operation at the Kenop Care Hospital and the Kwahu Government Hospital respectively.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency in an interview, a medical officer in charge of the Kenop Care Hospital, Dr Basik Awudu , advised midwives at the Community Health and Planning Services(CHPS) Compounds and other health centres in the communities to refer pregnant women early and timely to the hospitals to avoid complications, which could lead to post natal deaths.

The midwife on duty at the labour ward of the Kwahu Government Hospital, Mrs Christina Boateng, advised pregnant women to attend hospitals or CHPS Compounds regularly and also take their medications to ensure safe delivery.
