Mum Was Shock When Her Family Doubled Overnight With Surprise Triplets

A family doubled in size overnight when a mum gave birth to surprise triplets. She was naturally pregnancy. It was rare case.

Gemma Brown, 29, from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, was left stunned when she discovered at her 10 week scan that she was having three babies, not one. The mum claimed her “life flashed before her eyes” when the obstetrician announced the good news, while husband Kurt, 31, quietly smiled and kept his cool. But after bringing home the now seven-week old trio Everly, Orla and Nolan, to join big brother, Dylan, 6, the couple say they wouldn’t change their family of six for the world.

It was the realisation that family has doubled in size that left she in sʜᴏᴄᴋ. With a family-of-three , do everything  was quite easy in terms of going out to places.  You could just hop in the car and go rather than have to plan days in advance and pack three or four bags to go anywhere. After processing the news, stay-at-home mum Gemma and Kurt, who co-owns a vacuum repair business with his dad, called their families to share their joy and they were sʜᴏᴄᴋ.

 She said: “I knew there was more than one in there because from about 6 or 7 weeks I was as big as I had been at 20 weeks when I was pregnant with Dylan.  We mentally prepared ourselves for two babies because I had a feeling that there was more than one in there. Straight away we saw two flash up on the monitor as soon as she put the ultrasound to my belly. But then she said ‘hang on a minute’ and we started to panic thinking something was wrong and then she said there’s not just two babies in there, there’s three’.

Natural triplets are thought to be as rare as just one in 10,000 births and can pose some complications to mum and baby. Thankfully, Gemma enjoyed a smooth sailing pregnancy with the exception of some severe morning sɪᴄᴋɴᴇss, and the triplets were born by ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ at 33 weeks in February. Born just minutes apart, Gemma delivered Orla, 4lbs 7oz, Everly, 4lbs 1oz, and Nolan, 5lbs 1oz, at The Rosie Hospital in Cambridge, and was able to bring them home after just 10 days

Gemma said: “Dylan is a massive help and he’s really hands on, whenever one of the triplets starts crying he grabs their dummy and tries to soothe them. He’s always cuddling them and helping me feed them. We had always said we wanted a family but not a big one, but then we realised how lucky we are to have our family completed with four healthy babies.”
