Six children in three years and three months: this is the curious record that a young Australian couple set when, after having had three children literally one after the other, mum Chloé and dad Rohan learned that her fourth pregnancy was triplets. Like all pregnancies with more than one fetus, the ʀɪsᴋ of something going wrong increases and this couple was faced with a very difficult choice: would they rather accept that their children were born prematurely for medical reasons, with all the ʀɪsᴋs? entails, or did they want to save two out of three and allow it to come to an end normally?
Chloe and Ro agreed to take the ʀɪsᴋ and hoped they would be able to welcome the three new children into their lives.
Their triplets were born at only 28 weeks: the two boys, Henry and Rufus, had a normal weight, but little Pearl weighed less. At birth, she weighed only 2 kg!
Three other boys were waiting for them at home: Evan, Otto and Felix!
But the first days of neonatal intensive care were necessary to allow newborns to get back on their feet.
The joy of mom and dad having been able to know them all was really stronger than anything!
Look how small the only girl in the house was! After a few months, however, she too was in great shape and ready to take on the world with her brothers!
Of course, life with six children is chaotic and difficult…
But Chloe and Rohan couldn’t be more proud of their choice!
