Nigerian woman excited as she delivers baby with four hands and three legs

A 24-year-old woman is overjoyed after she successfully delivered a polymelia baby.
Malama Hawwa'u Jamilu delivered a set of twins on Sunday February 25, but unfortunately, one came out deformed. Local nurses who helped deliver her babies were shocked to find out that one of the babies had four hands and three legs.

According to Daily Trust, Hawwa'u is overly excited by her special child and has attributed the deformity to 'Allah's will'. She said:
“Both of them are female. Of course, one would have loved to deliver the babies without any deformity. But since Allah in His infinite mercy had decided to create the twins like this, what can I do? This is why you see me relaxed, and I love them both.”
The only peculiar behaviour exhibited by the deformed twin, is a big appetite. “Apart from that,” Hawwa’u said, “she is normal like any other baby. Have you forgotten that I carried her in my womb for nine months? I love my daughter and I know that she is human, despite her physical challenge.”
Hawwa'u said this is her fourth delivery in her six years of marriage. She said she never attended antenatal sessions and denied it was the reason her baby came out deformed.

 “I think the problem is not failure to visit the hospital, because the twins are not my first. As I said earlier, it is just the will of Allah. I gave birth three times, and I have not experienced anything like this. This is the will of Allah and there is nothing one can do about it,” she said.
A doctor at University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Umar Abdul'aziz is however positive that the deformed child would lead a normal life after a surgery has been done to remove the extra hands and leg.
There is nothing to worry about. It is a case that can be handled by experts after certain investigations. It is however advisable for all pregnant women to be attending ante-natal for their health and that of their unborn babies. Many things can be detected during ante-natal that would assist in safe delivery and correction of abnormalities. It is not proper at this period of the world’s development for somebody to decide to ignore ante-natal and be giving birth at home.
