In a sad turn, the young mom that just delivered 6 tiny babies in Nigeria has passed away from complications associated with the delivery.

Ajoke Bello, 32, gave birth to the six babies by Caesarean section operation on Thursday and was initially in a stable condition.

But she developed complications from excessive bleeding at hospital in Sagamu, Ogun State, south-west Nigeria.

The naturally conceived babies – three girls and three boys – were in a stable condition, said medical officials.

The new mom died at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital yesterday morning.

Professor Femi Ajayi, the chairman of the board of the hospital, confirmed her death to the Nigerian Tribune newspaper:

“It was an unfortunate incident.

“The doctors and nurses at the hospital put in their best to ensure that the woman lived.

“She was under close monitoring as the medical team did not leave any stone unturned to ensure that she was alive.”

Charity groups have been making donations for the upkeep of the 6 babies.

This mom also has 2 other children and her husband reportedly ‘fled’ after the news of the sextuplets arrival.

    This is so awful! These poor kiddos are going to grow up without the love of their mother and by the sounds of it without their father too.
