Sarah Ward has made headlines after giving birth to 4 babies within 9 months as a result of two pregnancies. The 29-year-old became pregnant with triplets one month after giving birth to her first son. Ward gave birth to her triplets 7 weeks prematurely when her oldest son Freddie was only nine months old. Ward from Crayford, Kent, said that she now changes about 30 diapers each day of all her children.
Ward said that she had a difficult time conceiving her first son, so she was delighted to learn that she was pregnant again. When doctors discovered that she was expecting triplets, they advised her to abort one of the fetuses to give the other 2 a better chance of survival.
However, Ward and her partner Benn Smith, 31, refused to so and decided to keep all three. They are now happy with their decision, as all three babies are healthy.
‘At times it feels more like running a nursery than a home, but we feel so blessed. I was stunned when I found out I was pregnant again so soon. When we learned it was triplets we went into shock.
‘At times it’s utter chaos but we just laugh and get stuck in. It takes two hours to prepare to leave the house but we don’t dwell on the hard work. I love babies so I feel like the luckiest mum in the world.’
On how she copes with strangers admiring the babies, Sarah admits;
‘It was lovely at first, but when everyone asks the same questions over and over again it does start to grate a little bit. I’m thinking of having a T-shirt made with the words: “Yes, they’re all mine. No, they’re not IVF triplets and, yes, I’m in a rush!”’
