Mother Got Pregnant With Triplets Week After Giving Birth To Second Child; UK Mom Birth To Four Babies In Less Than A Year
A mother gave birth to triplets and one more baby in a span of 11 months after she got pregnant when she gave birth to her second child. The mother-of-five talked about her story in a recent interview.
Fox News reported that the mother is from Wales, United Kingdom and was identified as Becky John. She just had her second daughter, Mya, and thought that it would be great for her baby to have a sibling of the same age to play with since her eldest daughter is nine years old. She and her partner, Jason Evans, then tried to conceive another child. John gave birth last February then became pregnant a week later.
What was more surprising was the fact that she got pregnant with triplets. She said that she had to make sure that she was carrying triplets and counted the heartbeats one by one. None of her friends initially believed her.
John noted that all the babies were naturally conceived and were each from a separate age. John noted that doctors told them it was the healthiest way to have triplets because they all had a placenta each so there were no risks associated with any one of them sharing just one placenta, New York Post reported.
The triplets were born in January 2016 via caesarean section. The babies were named Ryan, Raya, and Phoebe. John noted of the experience, "I was so huge by that time I could barely move and doctors wanted to get them out in case I went into labor early." She noted she was carrying around 15 pounds but she was thankful and relieved that all of them are healthy and well since being delivered.
As for the family adjusting with their additional family members, her nine-year-old daughter is said to be thrilled with the triplets. John said that she is also happy that Mya and the triplets will grow up close in age.
