Dr. Rachael Dickson, wife of the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has given birth to a set of quadruplets in the United States of America after undergoing fertility treatment at an IVF clinic.
More than 10 years after the Bayelsa State first couple married they had no child of their own, and when the bundle of joy arrived on Friday in the form of quadruplets, it was via In Vitro Fertilisation(IVF), sources told OrijoReporter.
According to wikipedia: “IVF is a process by which egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: (in glass). The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory… The techniques can be used in different types of situations. It is a technique of assisted reproductive technology for treatment of infertility.”
However while announcing the birth of his quadruplets, Gov. Dickson in a statement he released through his media aide, Iworiso-Markson, glossed over the side of the IVF.
The statement reads: “The season of celebrations continues in the family of Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State as his wife, the First Lady, Dr. Rachael Dickson, was delivered of a set of quadruplets: a bouncing baby boy and three beautiful baby girls. She gave birth in the United States. Mother and children are doing well.
“This is particularly good news for the family and Bayelsans because this bundle of joy is coming after many years of praying and waiting upon the Lord.”
