The four are two boys and equally two girls and have been confirmed by the medics in the facility to weigh between 1.1 and 1.4 kg and will be placed inside an incubator for a period of two months in order to add weight.
The medics also confirmed the babies were born without any complications other than the underweight.
The mother of the bundle was also confirmed to be in good condition the only area of improvement being her diet.
