Kimberly Robb, 37, was devastated when medics shattered her hopes of having another baby and told her she needed a hysterectomy.
She had been trying to get pregnant for two years but was diagnosed with adenomyosis — a painful condition of the womb that causes infertility.
Docs said the only cure for her pain was to remove her womb. She refused and went home to her window fitter partner Corbin Frampton, 29.
The couple made an appointment at a fertility clinic to see if they could help. But before attending the session, Kimberly noticed her stomach was swollen.
A test revealed she was pregnant and a scan later showed she was carrying triplets.
Kimberly, from Portsmouth, said: “I’d gone from potentially having my womb removed to being pregnant naturally with triplets.
“We just couldn’t believe it. I’m so glad I didn’t take the doctors’ advice.”
The non-identical triplets were all born healthy in January, with Elsie weighing 3lb 4ozs, Emmy at 3lb 6ozs and Addison 3lb 7ozs.
