Three out of the five deliveries were through natural means, while two were through Caesarean section (CS).

The mothers, speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) expressed joy for safe deliveries and were grateful to God for the offer.

Some said though they had some difficulties during the pregnancy, God had made it possible for them to deliver with ease.

Mrs Rose Balabo, one of the mothers said they were happy for delivering their babies on the birth of Jesus the Christ.

She said the day is a special day, therefore babies who made their way into the world on that day would be special babies.

Mrs Balabo advised her colleague mothers to take special care of the babies, raising them in Godly principles towards becoming good citizens.

Madam Petra Tameklo, Midwife, Ho Municipal Hospital, disclosed to GNA that mothers after delivery were sensitised on personal hygiene, exclusive breastfeeding and general baby care.
