Miracle triplets born from mum with heart shaped womb – story on Mail Online
Doctors told Jemma Sheppard, 31, she would struggle to carry one baby
As well as polycystic ovarian syndrome, she has a heart shaped uterus or two womb cavities
But astonishingly she gave birth to non identical triplets
Doctors believe all three babies squashed up into one womb
However were all born healthy
They are the miracle children Jemma and her husband Anton never thought they’d have.
After being told she’d have difficulty conceiving doctors then told Jemma, who suffers from polycystic ovarian syndrome had already been unsuccessfully trying for a baby when she was then told she had a rare ‘heart shaped womb’.
The condition meant she had two wombs – two separate uterine cavities joined by one cervix – which would make carrying one baby difficult.
The couple from Newport, were devastated. But after taking fertility drugs to help her ovulate, she was amazed to discover she was expecting triplets.
Incredibly all three babies squashed up in one of the womb cavities. However, the non identical two girls Elevyn and Areya and son Rome were born at 35 weeks healthily.
Three weeks after they were born the couple took their adorable family home where they are all thriving.
As a bonus, the babies have helped push Jemma’s uterus into a more normal shape. She says: “it was heart shaped with two horns but doctors have told me the babies have pushed it out to make it a more normal pear shape.”
The medical name for the condition is a bicornuate or arched uterus. Women with the condition often suffer miscarriages. Jemma and Anton wanted to raise awareness of the condition to help give hope to any other women with the same condition not to give up hope.
