Several doctors from different clinics confirmed the diagnosis of the woman, but contrary to forecasts, she became a mother of four babies in less than a year – and all were ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ naturally.
Charlotte, 32, and Billy, 29, married in 2014. They dreamed of a large family, but Charlotte could not get pregnant. When Charlotte went to a ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ clinic in 2015, she was examined and told that not only would she never be able to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ naturally, but I.V.F was unlikely to help her since she had practically no ᴇɢɢs.
Doctors advised the couple to look for an ᴇɢɢ donor. Moreover, such advice was given to Charlotte and Billy in several ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ clinics, where they turned after the first one. Doctors everywhere confirmed Charlotte’s initial diagnosis.
The couple had even already found an ᴇɢɢ donor, but just a week before the first meeting with her, Charlotte, who felt somehow strange, just in case, took a pregnancy test, which, to her amazement, turned out to be positive. As a result, on September 6, 2016, she safely gave birth to her son, Lewis.
But the miracles did not stop there – 2 months after the birth, Charlotte discovered that she was pregnant again. An ultrasound scan in January 2017 showed that she would have triplets.
Triplets – boys Jamie and Adam, and their sister Ella – were born on August 4 at 32 weeks. Ella weighed just 3lb 8oz, while the boys were only slightly heavier, with Adam at 3lb 11oz and Jamie at 4lb 4oz. All three spent more than a month in the intensive care unit and are now at home. Despite their low birth weight, babies develop well and are perfectly healthy.
“Now it’s so strange to remember what we were told about ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ and the impossibility of conception,” says Charlotte.
Of course, young parents have a hard time with four kids. “Having four babies is crazy. There’s lots of feedings with 26 bottles in 24 hours and then changing… we get through around 30 nappies every day,” the mom said.
Charlotte and Billy are helped by their parents, in addition, they arrange shifts so that everyone has the opportunity to get at least a little sleep. But despite all the difficulties and problems, they are perfectly happy. Mrs. Parker said, “It’s amazing for us to be together now as a family after everything. We’re really happy to be home and feel very lucky to have four happy and healthy babies.”
