A woman gave birth to six children with one baby girl died during delivery, Express News reported on Wednesday.

Mrs Qasim, a Ravi Road resident, had five baby girls and one baby boy. The five infants were shifted to the Children’s Hospital Nurse Ward owing to them being underweight. Doctors say that nothing can be said if the babies will survive.

On October 27, a woman had given birth to a child on hospital grounds after the medical staff allegedly refused to admit her in Dera Ghazi Khan’s Teaching Hospital.

The woman’s mother-in-law, a resident of Shehzad Colony, said that she had brought his pregnant daughter-in-law, Sajida, to the hospital after she went into labour. But instead of admitting her, the staff and doctors had asked her to bring admission slip and Sajida’s ultrasound report.

“My daughter-in-law was suffering from labour pains and despite my efforts to admit her, the hospital staff refused to do so,” she had maintained. “I had no other option but to lay her on the hospital ground where she gave birth to a baby surrounded by people,” she had added.

    I wonder why such incidents takes place in backward areas like Ravi Road or Walled City, not in DHA or Gulberg.Recommend
