After 3 miscarriages in the space of a year, a 30-year-old woman has given birth to triplets. She discovered years too late that she suffered from a dangerous fetal condition.
The future can sometimes turn out to be very surprising. Hannah, a 30-year-old British mother, shows us this. After giving birth to her first daughter Isabella in May 2018, the young woman and her partner Siobhan decided not to stop there.

According to the doctors she met, she was certainly suffering from iron deficiency, "deficiencies in this, in that”. Learning the real reason for her ailments scared her, but on the other hand, she was greatly relieved. Hannah was therefore able to treat herself properly with anticoagulants.
The couple then decided to use Hannah's last 2 eggs ready for insemination. The magic, or science then worked, and the young woman became pregnant again after years of fighting. An intense joy for the 2 moms, which only increased when they found out that Hannah was expecting triplets! On August 13, the little family welcomed Alice, Evelyn and Amélia. Great news that young mothers could finally shout to the whole world … because they had decided to keep the pregnancy more or less secret, for obvious reasons due to the health crisis and the possible risks during pregnancy.
The birth of the triplets has been a real relief and endless happiness for Hannah and Siobhan. 3 little girls for 3 miscarriages. “It was just amazing. We were both so shocked, but so happy that after losing 3 we now had 3”Hannah told British media.
