Desiree Fortin knew for a long time that she couldn’t have a child until suddenly something miraculous happened and she was pregnant with triplets. The young woman was happier than anything, but doctors said the little ones were unlikely to stay.
Desiree had low ᴘʀᴏɢᴇsᴛᴇʀᴏɴᴇ levels, struggled with ʜʏᴘᴏᴛʜʏʀᴏɪᴅɪsᴍ, and had ᴘᴏʟʏᴄʏsᴛɪᴄ ᴏᴠᴀʀʏ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ. All of these illnesses confirmed that she and her husband, Ryan, could not have children. Experts have said that even if ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ, they are unlikely to be able to carry them.
The couple eventually opted for ᴀʀᴛɪꜰɪᴄɪᴀʟ ɪɴsᴇᴍɪɴᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, so they ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ not one but three babies at a time. One doctor said that because she was too thin, Desiree was unlikely to be able to carry the triplets. Luckily, however, there was another doctor who saw things completely differently and believed in them all the way through.
They were waiting for the arrival of their hoped-for babies. At least 20 people, including doctors and staff, were present the day she gave birth to her three babies. They proceeded to deliver her babies. “And that was when our doctor pulled Charlize out. Next came Sawyer, and then Jax. As I lay on the operating table, I watched Ryan as he doted over our babies. My heart felt at peace,” she said.
“Pregnancy isn’t always an easy thing to do and some women can’t enjoy it at all, but nonetheless, I’m always grateful that my body has such an amazing structure… and was able to carry them out!” She wrote in a 2019 Instagram post.
During her pregnancy, Desiree kept concentrating on how amazing and strong her body was, and she was very proud of herself when she looked at photos taken during her pregnancy.
His Instagram post spread like wildfire on the Internet, receiving nearly 5,000 likes and lots of comments. Many have written about how beautiful the body of a pregnant woman is.
“It’s amazing what our bodies do or can do for us. Let’s celebrate every day, because our bodies are wonderful!” she said.
“My ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ has been a defining part of my life. All I can say is thank you. Now these three beautiful children can live their lives with their mother fighting for them with their teeth and nails every minute,” she explained.
Desiree is no longer the proud and happy mother of three, but four children.
