- Melomed Mitchells Plain in Cape Town celebrated a triple bundle of joy on Easter Sunday
- Doctors delivered triplets for the first time ever at that hospital since its inception
- The mother and the babies are all doing fine
Melomed Mitchells Plain, a private hospital in Cape Town, South Africa, celebrated a triple bundle of joy on Good Friday, April 14.
Doctors at the hospital delivered triplets for the first time ever since its formation.
Even more remarkably, the triplets were all girls.
The lucky mother is 34-year-old Dorcas Voyi, who was already a mother of two before the triplets arrived.
Dorcas, who lives in Khayelitsha, named her three baby girls Akhona, Aphelele and Apiwe.
Doctors said the delivery went well and the mother as well as the three bundles of joy were all healthy and strong.
They said baby Akhona was the first to arrive at 12:05pm, weighing 2.020kg.
Just a minute later, Aphelele was in hot pursuit and emerged weighing 2.005kg.
The "last born" among equals, Aphiwe, arrived weighing 2.035kg at 12:07pm.
While Dorcas was discharged, the three bundles of joy are still being cared for at the hospital to make sure their are fully fit to face the world.
Hopefully, it won't be too long until they are able to go home to join their two older siblings.
