Multiple births at Laniado
5 sets of twins and 1 set of triplets born within 24 hours
Under the shadow of the security situation in Israel, life continues at Laniado and for the first time in its 40 year history, five sets of twins and a set of triplets were born within 24 hours.
There was great excitement among the teams of midwives and doctors who accompanied the births who said they had not previously witnessed this number of multiple births in such a short period of time. In only 24 hours, the population of the Neonatal Department almost doubled.
“As part of my work in the delivery room, there is a special moment when the baby emerges and I hand it over to the mother,” says midwife Penina Rosenwasser, director of Birth Pathway at Laniado. “During the past week I had the opportunity to deliver several sets of twins and the happiness I felt when I gave the babies to the mothers was double and triple.”
