Reginald and Keisha Hird, regarded as the first Jamaican parents of quadruplets, and their children, paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding at Jamaica House in Kingston on Friday (January 15).
The visit was less than two weeks before the second birthday of the four girls – Ruth-Anne, Isabelle, Gabrielle and Annabelle – who were delivered at 31 weeks via a classic Caesarean section, following induced labour, at the University Hospital of the West Indies on January 24, 2008.
The Registrar General’s Department (RGD) has indicated that they are the first quadruplets recorded as being born in Jamaica.
The Prime Minister said he was pleased with the progress the children have made since, and assured the parents that he would do whatever he could to assist them meeting the needs of their four growing daughters.
