They are the babies that propelled their mother into the history books and earned her the sᴄᴏʀɴ of millions. But three months on since 65-year-old Annegret Raunigk gave birth to Qᴜᴀᴅʀᴜᴘʟᴇᴛs, mother and babies have been given the green light to ʟᴇᴀᴠᴇ ʜᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟ by the end of the month. Doctors were extremely concerned at the time that the very ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ babies would not sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ, with tiny baby girl Neeta weighing just 1lb 7oz when she was born. Neeta’s three brothers were almost as small – with Bence weighing 1lb 8oz, Fjonn 1lb 10oz and Dries 2lb 2oz – and the sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇʟʏ ᴜɴᴅᴇʀᴡᴇɪɢʜᴛ babies had to be kept in incubators for the first week of their lives.
The children were born through Cᴀᴇsᴀʀɪᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ but all four are now as strong and as heavy as it they had been born naturally. A few days ago, Neeta, Bence, Fjonn and Dries – now weighing 5lb 11oz, 5lb 12oz, 5lb 13oz and 6lb 3oz respectively – were examined and deemed fit enough to leave the hospital soon. Professor Buhrer added: “Now they are ordinary children who want to go home to be looked after by their mother.”
Annegret is now a mother of 17 children, with the oldest being 44, and a grandmother of seven. She has always ɪɢɴᴏʀᴇᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴏʀᴀʟ ᴇᴀʀᴛʜǫᴜᴀᴋᴇ she has triggered, the ɢᴀsᴘs ᴏꜰ ʜᴏʀʀᴏʀ from those who say she is sᴇʟꜰɪsʜ, ᴍᴀᴅ or both. She said: “Everyone should live as they want to but everyone, it seems, has something to say about this. This is not about egotism and it is not selfishness. I like children – they keep me young. You get more tolerant the older you get. I would never dream of telling anyone to do this or that. I am looked after, consulted, observed. I am fit and I am ready to have these babies and to care for them.”
