One mother got the surprise of a lifetime once she returned from a romantic babymoon trip just in the nick of time!
Over in the UK, Stephanie Latcham, 27, and her fiancée, Michael Gough, 30, were saddened to learn that becoming pregnant was becoming more and more difficult. Two miscarriages in two years were heartbreaking and Latcham suffers from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
The couple came to the decision that they would begin IVF treatments according to Mirror.co.uk. But before starting the tough regime, the Ferryhill, Durham couple planned to blow off some steam with a trip to Mallorca, Spain.
Apparently, the romantic vacation was all that the couple needed because upon their return (and right before they were scheduled to begin costly and often painful IVF treatments) Latcham was told by a sonographer that three sacks that split naturally which resulted in identical triplets. This happens once in every 200 million births!
Enter Ollie-Anna, Isabella and Brianna Gough who were warmly welcomed by their loving parents and extended family on March 30, 2019.
“We were blessed with these for a reason," proud papa Gough said.
"I'd suffered two miscarriages in the past and after being diagnosed with PCOS," Latcham told People. "I thought they only way for us to have our own baby was through IVF. But while on holiday we conceived on September 9, just one day after Michael proposed."
The new mom of multiples went on to state that she was in such a state of shock after finding out that she was pregnant but it was an incredible feeling. She and her fiancée and are also happy that their amazing story can offer a message of hope and inspiration to couples who are struggling with infertility as they were. While this one-in-every-200-million-births story obviously won't happen to every couple dealing with infertility, it's still nice to have a message of hope to hang on to. And then there is IVF which has had wonderful results for many couples.
