Many couples dream of having children. The birth of a child is truly one of the most uplifting and amazing things a person can ever experience. But for some women, the mere thought of children ʙʀᴇᴀᴋs their hearts. This was the case for Morales Osuna and Isaac, a couple who had been trying to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ for three years. However, sometimes fate brings pleasant surprises in more numbers than expected. The couple didn’t give up, even though it was an emotional rollercoaster for both of them.
Morales Osuna, a 30-year-old teacher from California, was treated for ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ for three years and finally became pregnant. And she didn’t just get pregnant. She gave birth to quadruplets! Doctors suggested leaving only two babies in the early stages to avoid a ʀɪsᴋʏ pregnancy. But she and her husband refused ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀʟ ɪɴᴛᴇʀᴠᴇɴᴛɪᴏɴ. Now they have three daughters and one son.
Morales Osuna and her husband Isaac have been trying to have children since 2015. “We always wanted four children. We went around to all possible doctors and eventually decided on I.V.F,” says the girl. And the procedure was more than successful. Instead of one baby, the ultrasound showed four. “Doctors suggested reducing two ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏs. But we couldn’t go for it and decided to leave everyone,” says her husband Isaac.
Morales did not suffer from ᴛᴏxɪᴄᴏsɪs and carry her quadruplets until the 34th week. After that, as a result of a ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, four beautiful babies were born. All of them, Marissa, Marcelo, Ivanna and Isabel, weighed at least 1.8 kg and were completely healthy. The happy family went home on the ninth day after giving birth.
Young parents immediately after discharge resorted to the services of a professional nanny. She helped them establish a daily routine and taught them how to cope with all the kids at once. “The nurse had kick started our quadruplets routine and now we ensure we feed two babies at a time. She is very good at telling us what they need as they’ll cry when they’re hungry or need their nappy changing,” she said. “We get through tons of washing every day as well as changing 32 nappies. It’s all worth it, though – we couldn’t be happier with our family, which is definitely complete now.”
Now the family even manages to maintain their own blog about raising four children. “Quadruples are hard, if only because of the amount of washing! But we are glad to have the family we dreamed about. And we hope to inspire others with our example,” says Morales.
