While most of the baby bumps we see around us usually fall under a single size category here is one that really went beyond that. Here we will get to see a rather unusual sight of a baby bump that has got to be one of the biggest ones we have seen to date.
The mother in question is 36-year-old Maria. She lives in Norway and at the moment is in her 9th month of pregnancy. She has been sharing her pregnancy pics and making videos to post online thought this experience. Maria is already a mother of a two-year-old son, and now things are going to get cranked up to eleven. For those that are wondering why that is, well Maria is expecting to have triplets. There is a reason why her baby bump is bigger than most mums’.
This documentary of sorts has gotten Maria over 20k followers. Moreover, we really can’t blame the people that are interested in knowing how she is doing. Pregnancy is quite a time in a woman’s life. Also, with a rare case such as Maria’s, of course, people want to know whom the journey is going.
The triplets will be delivered through C-section. The doctors have made it pretty clear that a natural birth at the moment is off the table. It would place too much stress upon Maria, and that can be quite harmful in this situation. Her date is this month, on the 12th of September.
For those people that are not ware, triplets are not born that often. According to statistics, there are only around a 100 set of triplets born each year in the UK. So that is around 1 in every 5k, or so mothers have triplets.
Usually, for obvious reasons, such births are done through C-section operations. So there are quite some hindrances when it comes to the children’s birth.
According to the NHS;
There are usually more health professionals at multiple births – for example, there may be two midwives, an obstetrician and two pediatricians (one for each baby). You will already have met your obstetrician and midwives to discuss your baby’s birth beforehand, so they won’t all be strangers.“
“Lots of women think they have to have a cesarean section with twins. In fact, more than 40% of twin births are vaginal, and the process is similar to that of a single baby.
If you’re planning a vaginal delivery, it’s usually recommended that you have an epidural for pain relief, but you can discuss this with your midwife.”
