Mum, 33, Who Was Told She Would Struggle To Have Kids Due To ‘Heart-Shaped ᴡᴏᴍʙ’ Has Given Birth To Triplets

Jemma Sheppard, 33, from Newport, UK, works in finance. She shares her amazing story after finding out she was expecting three babies, despite suffering from a ᴜᴛᴇʀɪɴᴇ ᴍᴀʟꜰᴏʀᴍᴀᴛɪᴏɴ that split her ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs into two sections.

Jemma and her 32-year-old husband, Anton Sheppard, were in when doctors informed them that Jemma’s ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs had split in two. This meant that it would be nearly impossible for Jemma to carry a child in her womb.

Hence, it was a moment of incredible joy when doctors told Jemma she was pregnant with three babies, which lay compressed on one side of her uterus.

Jemma was struggling to have even one child. But when she found out she was expecting triplets, she was on cloud nine.

Today, the family is finally complete. Jemma and Anton proudly hold their two daughters, Areya and Everlyn, and their son, Rome. It was no less than a miracle.

After a year of marriage, Jemma suffered a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ. His general practitioner then asked him to do hormonal tests. The results revealed to the couple that Jemma had ᴘᴏʟʏᴄʏsᴛɪᴄ ᴏᴠᴀʀɪᴇs and that she had a ᴍᴀʟꜰᴏʀᴍᴇᴅ ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs.

This disease is known as bicornuate ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs. Women who suffer from this ᴜᴛᴇʀɪɴᴇ ᴍᴀʟꜰᴏʀᴍᴀᴛɪᴏɴ are more likely to experience ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs and premature deliveries. Jemma was then prescribed medication with which she was able to conceive twice. But unfortunately, both her pregnancies ended in ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs.

The couple then turned to I.U.I. For this ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ, Jemma’s ovulation process was located by ultrasound. There were three eggs, each with a 15% chance of being fertilized.

However, the couple took the, and two weeks later, Jemma was pregnant with three babies. Women who have the same uterine problem as Jemma often give birth prematurely. So on December 20, a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ was triggered and made it possible to welcome three healthy children.

The babies were 35 weeks old and were born at Cardiff University Hospital in the UK. All were in good health. Areya weighed 1.5 kg, Elevyn 2.4 kg, and Rome 2.1 kg.

After almost three weeks, the babies were able to go home. The couple are very happy to have achieved such a miracle.
