THE Lusaka quintuplets and their mother, Shabi Mulenga, have been discharged from the University Teaching Hospital.
University Teaching Hospital (UTH) managing director Lackson Kasonka said the babies who were born prematurely were out of any danger.
The quintuplets were born on October 23, 2012 weighing between 1.1 and 1.7 kilogrammes.
“”They have all pulled through, though they still remain underweight. They are breathing very well and we will continue monitoring their growth in terms of weight from home,” he said.
Dr Kasonka said UTH management had inspected the room where the babies would be sleeping and were satisfied with the environment.
“We will ensure the babies are kept well,” he said.
Dr Kasonka said medical support for the five babies would continue and that a team of about eight dedicated medical specialists would be exchanging to continue monitoring them on a full-time basis.
