Anna Mitchell, 30, had thought she would never be a mum again after she tragically lost 4 babies. She was extremely desperate, and gradually lost faith in the noble path of motherhood. However, when her mother passed away, she left Mitchell some money in her will, with which she used to pay for IVF treatment. She was shocked to learn that she was actually expecting three children.
I was in shock after losing my third child. Three of my children have died. I dreaded the thought that I would never have children. My fallopian tubes have the potential to rupture each time, endangering my life if I lose these children. I had one of my fallopian tubes removed by the physicians. It was awful; it diminished some of my chances to becoming a mother.
I used the urge to continue trying to have children after my mother passed away as motivation to get stronger. An unsuccessful initial IVF cycle resulted in a miscarriage. Nobody would have blamed them if they had given up on having their ideal family, but they persisted and tried again. My wife and I were ecstatic when we learned we were expecting following another IVF cycle.
A tiny heartbeat was ceasing because you were so glad it was there. I wept with relief. After losing four children, a heartbeat is now present. We have the impression that my mother is always keeping watch over us and supporting us as we travel. However, the sonographer delivered wonderful news for them at 13 weeks pregnant: there were actually three babies within.
She said: ‘I almost fell off the table in shock. Then I started crying again. I not only had one child, I had three.
My pregnancy went well, the babies were born to caesarians at Kingsmill Hospital in Mansfield. Summer weighs 3Ib8 and identical twins Joseph at 3Ib8 and Jacob at 4Ib5. I couldn’t contain my emotions right now, when I saw my children lying there, so healthy and lovely.
I’ve waited all these years to have a child, and now three of them are born at the same time. And it’s all thanks to my mother, it was her godly gift to me. Since then I realized one thing is, don’t lose faith and hope, it’s just that it is somewhere and it’s not time to appear with you.
