Woman Gives Birth To ‘ Mɪʀᴀᴄʟᴇ‘ Triplets After Her Sad Story 

After suffering two ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs, Natasha O’Grady thought she might never become a mum and then the ᴜɴᴛʜɪɴᴋᴀʙʟᴇ happened – she became pregnant with triplets.

 Natasha O’Grady and her husband Ryan were left in total sʜᴏᴄᴋ when they went for their 14-week sᴄᴀɴ and heard not one, but three healthy heartbeats on the monitor. The couple had been trying to have a baby for several years and ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄᴀʟʟʏ sᴜFFᴇʀᴇᴅ ᴛᴡᴏ ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs along the way. Natasha, 32, had become worried that she may never have children and unsurprisingly spent a lot of the pregnancy fearing that history may repeat itself. But the couple from Isleworth, London, feel so “blessed” that all worked out well and they are now proud parents to three adorable daughters Onyx, Maddox and Quinn, who are four months old. The couple describes the moment they found out they were having triplets as “sᴜʀʀᴇᴀʟ”.

Natasha, a content creator, said: “We were in complete disbelief! We had mentally tried to prepare to hear those ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ words again, so to hear we were actually already passed the first trimester and carrying three healthy babies was the ᴄʀᴀᴢɪᴇsᴛ moment of our lives. We have no history of triplets in our family so we feel completely blessed. It is like we were given back all of our babies.”

The triplets were conceived naturally and born at 33 weeks, but it was a bumpy road to get to their delivery.  Natasha’s journey to motherhood first began in January 2019. The couple were elated when they found out they were having a baby but as the weeks passed, she ʙᴇɢᴀɴ ᴛᴏ ʙʟᴇᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ ᴀɴ ᴇᴀʀʟʏ sᴄᴀɴ ᴄᴏɴFɪʀᴍᴇᴅ ᴛʜᴇʀᴇ ᴡᴀsɴ’ᴛ ᴀ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙᴇᴀᴛ.

Then in March of 2020, the pair found out they were expecting for the second time. Natasha experienced ᴄʀᴀᴍᴘs but as there wasn’t ᴀɴʏ ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ, sʜᴇ ᴛʀɪᴇᴅ to remain positive that things would work out.

“Sadly, I was wrong. I ᴄᴏʟʟᴀᴘsᴇᴅ at home and I wasn’t ʙʀᴇᴀᴛʜɪɴɢ properly. My body went into total sʜᴏᴄᴋ as my body ʀᴇᴊᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ the pregnancy. As I was taken out on a stretcher by the paramedics, my body was ᴛʀᴇᴍʙʟɪɴɢ ᴀɴᴅ I ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ. I was taken into theatre as I began to ᴘʀᴏFᴜsᴇʟʏ ʙʟᴇᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇʏ ɴᴇᴇᴅᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ᴏᴘᴇʀᴀᴛᴇ ɪᴍᴍᴇᴅɪᴀᴛᴇʟʏ. The whole world wants to portray pregnancy as this seemingly, perfectly smooth ride. It’s not until you’ve been through it that you realise this simply isn’t the case for a large proportion of society. Nothing could prepare us for our journey to parenthood. I never thought a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ would happen to me and that’s simply because it’s a topic that isn’t openly talked about enough which drastically needs to change. It was ᴇxᴛʀᴇᴍᴇʟʏ ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀᴛɪᴄ ʙᴏᴛʜ ᴍᴇɴᴛᴀʟʟʏ ᴀɴᴅ ᴘʜʏsɪᴄᴀʟʟʏ, and I began to believe I may never become a mum.”” she remembers.

Natasha continued: “When I fell pregnant for the third time, there was no celebration hugs or jumping up and down in the bathroom. The sʜᴇᴇʀ ᴡᴀᴠᴇ ᴏF ᴘᴀɴɪᴄ ᴊᴜsᴛ ᴇɴɢᴜʟFᴇᴅ us again and that is the sad reality of pregnancy after loss, you truly believe it’s going to be ᴛᴀᴋᴇɴ ᴀᴡᴀʏ Fʀᴏᴍ ʏᴏᴜ ᴀᴛ ᴀɴʏ ᴍᴏᴍᴇɴᴛ. I found myself desperately seeking something to fuel my focus on.  Ryan and I decided to bring our wedding forward to August 2019. It was the ᴡᴏʀsᴛ decision we could have made.”

She said: when i was pregnant the next time At 13 weeks, my heart ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ ɪɴᴛᴏ a million pieces when I found ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ᴀɢᴀɪɴ. But at the 14-week sᴄᴀɴ, the Sonographer revealed three healthy heartbeats. Going from no children to a parent of three overnight has been a total whirlwind, but Ryan and I work so well, together as a team to give our girls the happiest lives we can. We truly believe we’ve been blessed with this incredible gift as it’s so rare to have triplets and couldn’t be more grateful every day that our girls were born into the world healthy and safe after such an incredibly scary pregnancy.
