The chances are 1 in 15 million!
To bear a child for 9 months is not a joke, let alone be pregnant with FOUR babies!
This was precisely the case for this mom who weathered the storm after birth to quadruplets!
Taylor Becher of Albertville, Minnesota, redefined the meaning of motherhood when she bravely hurdled the challenges of having multiple lives inside her tummy.
On March 11th, 2020, she and her boyfriend Lance Thompson learned about this huge news.
They learned that they were having quadruplets! The couple was caught in a little shock after discovering the four new family members.
They already had a 21-month-old little boy back then and having four new babies was obviously quite an addition.
Although she’s not a first-time parent, having quadruplets still scared her.
That’s totally understandable because having multiple babies during pregnancy still hits different compared to having just one.
It’s times four the effort and care throughout those nine months of carrying them. Gladly, Lance was there during the process, from start to finish.
During those crucial months, the emotional support and his undying presence tremendously helped Taylor.
Nevertheless, she enjoyed preparing and buying her little angels’ needs like newborn clothes and car seats.
The day finally came!
Taylor gave birth to their new set of bundles of joy. They were four little princesses named, Lakely, Sawyer, Kennedy, and Aurora.
What surprised them the most was finding out their newborn baby girls are all identical!
But still, the couple was thankful because the operation went well and all their girls were safe.
They were all healthy, and no one had any complications or health-related issues.
Sawyer was the biggest among them four. She weighed 3 pounds and 3 ounces. While Lakely was the smallest at 2 pounds and 3 ounces.
Taylor said that Lakely didn’t grow as fast as her other sister during pregnancy. However, she’s the only one who didn’t need breathing assistance.
Having identical quadruplets is rare. It only happens once in 15 million births!
However, multiple pregnancies and birth come with risks, according to reproductivefacts.org:
“Complications increase with each additional fetus in multiple pregnancies and include many medical issues discussed below. In addition to these, there is a higher incidence of severe nausea and vomiting, cesarean section, or forceps delivery.”
Despite all these risk factors, the beauty of its existence is still magical, don’t you agree?
Lakely, Sawyer, Kennedy, and Aurora are now 2 years old!
Luckily, Taylor and Lance could keep up with taking care of five children, particularly their quadruplets.
From a family of three to a family of seven suddenly! That’s quite a jump, isn’t it? But the Thompsons couldn’t be happier with what and where fate brought them.
The couple decided to put up social media accounts to keep people updated to share all the fun and good vibes with the rest of the world.
They are on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. The family shares a piece of their life and what they regularly do to make parenting work, particularly dealing with quadruplets.
Another good news is that Taylor and Lance are set to tie the knot this May 21st! Make sure to celebrate with them and their beautiful family.
