A mum who gave birth to quadruplets has recalled the moment she realised she was going to give birth to four babies.
The mother-of-five Natalie Maree, from Roebourne in Western Australia, and her husband Kahn had tried for years to have a child before welcoming their two-year-old daughter Kiki.
Natalie was diagnosed with ‘unexplained infertility’, called ‘anovulation’, several years ago and had to have hormones injected into her to stimulate regular ovulation.
She was delighted when she became pregnant a second time however she said her ‘jaw dropped’ when she realised that she was actually carrying four babies.
During her seven-week scan, she noticed two sacs and excitedly pointed out her ‘twins’ however her songrapher shook his head.
‘”Triplets!” I cried. But slowly the sonographer shook his head. Then, without a word, he held up four fingers!’ Natalie told.
She said her husband ‘almost passed out’.
In July, Natalie welcomed Maioha Kahn (2.3kg), Frankee Gene (1.92kg), Marley Rose (2.2kg) and Maddison Grace (2.1kg) via C-Section at 34 weeks.
The mother of five has decided to be ‘real’ on social media, sharing regular updates about daily family life on her Instagram page, Kiki and the Quads.
Since giving birth, Natalie has kept her followers updated on her Instagram where she’s debunked myths on ‘post-baby body bounce back’.
In one post, the mum can be seen smiling into the camera with a t-shirt on, in the next photo she lifted her shirt to show her belly after carrying four infants.
‘If I ONLY posted the second photo I would’ve received |you should be so proud of what your body has done”.
