Changing an average of 175 diapers and making 80 bottles of milk each week is not an easy task. But this is just the beginning of the list of obligations of a young mother from England who gave birth to four babies in a period of nine months!
Sarah Ward’s son Freddie was nine months old when she gave birth to triplets, who are now almost five months old. She and her husband, Benn Smith were surprised to learn that they had just become parents when they had just had their first child.
Their sʜᴏᴄᴋ when they learned that they were not expecting one, but three babies, is indescribable. However, both parents, who have long struggled to have a child, say they are happy – though exhausted – for their large family.
Sarah had been trying to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ for more than a year when she became pregnant with Freddie. So, since they were born in June last year, the couple was not worried about any problems.
“We wanted to have at least two children. Because it took us so long with Freddie, we expected it to take time for the next one,” Sarah said. However, Freddie was only eight weeks old when she learned she was pregnant again.
“When we found out they were triplets we were sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ,” says Sarah, adding that “sometimes there is complete chaos, but we just laugh.”
“It takes two hours to prepare to leave the house. I love my babies, though, and I feel like the luckiest mom in the world,” said the happy mother.
