The case when quadruplets are born happens once every 700,000. This time it happened to a 31-year-old woman from the UK. Having overcome a lot of difficulties and experiences, she, together with her husband, in love and harmony, raised wonderful quaruplets and two older children.
Learn from our material how a couple with many children manages to cope with caregiving and rationally distribute the family budget so that the kids do not need anything.
When Matt Davis and Kathleen Martin started living together in 2012, they decided to have a child together. Both were divorced and had children from previous marriages: Faith, who is now 11 years old, and Callum, who turned 10 years old.
The woman could not get pregnant for a long time due to health problems, but in 2014 the test showed a long-awaited positive result. What was the surprise of the newly minted parents and doctors when it was discovered that they were expecting not one child, but four at once!
Quadruplets ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ without ᴀʀᴛɪꜰɪᴄɪᴀʟ ɪɴsᴇᴍɪɴᴀᴛɪᴏɴ are born once per 700,000. In the UK, this case is unique. Katelina ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ four fraternal babies at the same time, which are not similar to each other. Now the children have already turned 4 years old.
Sofia, Eston, Amelia and Roman were born in February. The family lives in Stockport, Manchester.
Parents, together with their crumbs, had to go through a difficult path. It all started with 20 diapers and 24 bottles of milk per day and other problems that mom and dad had to cope with on their own.
The very first experiences were associated with the normal course of such a complex pregnancy. Doctors initially advised the woman to leave only two ꜰᴇᴛᴜsᴇs because there was a ʀɪsᴋ of losing them all and a threat to the health of the mother herself. But, Katelina decided to leave everything as it is.
The belly of the unique mother reached huge sizes. Because of this, she had to stop working as a hairdresser. None of the clients could believe that she was carrying four children under her heart at once.
Katelina was admitted to the hospital for preservation in January, at 27 weeks of pregnancy. The quadruplets were born by ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ in February, at the 30th week of pregnancy.
Sofia weighed 1,637 kg, Roman 1,276 kg, Eston 1,417 kg, and Amelia 1,559 kg. All the babies were born healthy.
A few days later, the happy parents brought the crumbs home and, from the very first days, noticed that they were completely different both in appearance and in character. Eston is always joyful and smiling, Sofia loves to eat and is very calm, Roman is the smallest, but the most vociferous, and everyone who meets her falls in love with Amelia.
Difficulties in raising and caring for children continue today. The couple spends 200 pounds a week on babies, but the mother says that she would not like to change anything in her life. A mother with many children is constantly in a state of increased vigilance and anxiety for her children. Dad tries his best to earn enough so that the family does not need anything.
Recently, Matt and Katelina decided to officially get married and have a wedding. All the children were witnesses at the family celebration and they loved it madly. The guests were delighted with the little participants of the ceremony, dressed in identical purple suits and dresses.
The happy couple says that now their family is full and they are not planning any more children.
Four children are worries and fatigue multiplied by four, but the joy they give also increases fourfold. If there is love, understanding in the family and all the difficulties are divided into two, then in total there is a huge happiness. This simple math is the basis of harmony, which the couple of Matt and Katelina manage to maintain, no matter what.
