According to the British Sun, at local time on February 18, a 29-year-old British female teacher gave birth to a child only 11 months after giving birth to triplets. All four babies were premature, making the mother and father’s lives hard but happy. In the UK, the situation of giving birth to four children in one year is not an isolated case. In 2021, there will also be a mother who gave birth to four babies in a year, plus the eldest daughter. This mother will take care of five children under the age of 8 at the same time.
Bethany Kaur, 29, is a trainee teacher who lives with her husband, Kay Singh, 35, in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, England.
In April 2020, when Pofenni was 31 weeks pregnant, she gave birth to triplets through an ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ. Since the pregnancy is not yet 8 months old, the three children are very small. Among the three children, there are two girls and one boy. The girl, Kiren, weighs 3 pounds, 4 ounces, and Kirit weighs 3 pounds, 9 ounces. The boy, Arjan, weighed 3 pounds, 5 ounces.
Children are not born breathing enough on their own and must be put on ventilators.
When the triplets were six months old, Pofenni found out she was pregnant again. Although Buffalo and her husband had long planned to have a baby, they didn’t expect the baby to come so quickly. They told The Sun they were speechless when they heard the news. “It was a very difficult time, but we have to embrace it.”
The fourth baby, Karan, is due on June 1, 2021, exactly one year after the triplets are due.
But Buffalo was born prematurely again.
On March 13, 2021, 3 months before the due date, Baofenni gave birth to Kalan through emergency belly planning. The baby weighed 3 pounds at birth. The triplets have just passed 11 months.
Baby Karan spent 12 weeks in the hospital before being released to live with his older siblings.
Baofenni said that now the couple is very busy every day. Fortunately, Karan is a very good child, even better than his brothers and sisters, and the children get along very well.
In 2021, Jessica Pritchard of Sheffield, England, also gave birth to four children in a year. Jessica gave birth to daughters in May 2020 and triplets 11 months later. The triplets were also premature, weighing 2.3 kg, 3.3 kg, and 3.4 kg, respectively. Together with their 8-year-old daughter, the Jessicas have to take care of five children under the age of 8 at the same time.
