Woman got pregnant one week after giving birth, later had 4 babies in 11 months


A mom from Wales experienced the miracle of life four times over in just 11 months.
Becky John, of Swansea, thought it would be nice for her baby daughter Mya to have a similarly aged sibling to play with and decided to conceive another child with her partner Jason Evans.
John, who gave birth to Mya in February,2015, became pregnant just one week later and was shocked to discover she would be giving birth to triplets.
“I had to stare at the screen just to make sure for myself. And I counted the heartbeats one by one. It was true I was actually pregnant with triplets,” John told Barcroft, adding none of her friends believed her.

“They were all naturally conceived and they were each from a separate egg, which is really rare. Doctors told us it was the healthiest way to have triplets, because they all had a placenta each, it meant there was no risks associated with any one of them sharing a placenta,” John added.John — who also has a nine-year-old daughter named Kayla — gave birth by caesarian to Ryan, Raya and Phoebe.
“I was so huge by that time I could barely move and doctors wanted to get them out in case I went into labor early,” John told Barcroft.
“I’ve been carrying around nearly 15 pounds of babies. I couldn’t believe it. But I was just so relieved they were all healthy and well,” she added.

John was worried how she would manage with so many babies, but now she couldn’t be happier with her newest additions.
“Kayla was thrilled with her three new brothers and sisters and it’s lovely to think that Mya and the triplets are growing up so close in age,” John said.
*So, after one week, the plate is already clean and dry enough for dishing and serving food? She is a strong woman. Kudos!*

Here is why women started to lie down flat during childbirth and why it's not the best method


During labour and childbirth, The scene is mostly the same: woman on a bed, white gown, looking sweaty and screaming blue murder, while pushing and doling out witty put downs to her husband, who stands awkwardly to one side or outside if it's a general (Government) hospital in Nigeria.
It's not a pretty picture and certainly not one that played out during childbirth in days gone by – or more specifically over 300 years ago. 

For starters, there never even used to be a bed in childbirthing. The idea of giving birth on a bed wasn't actually introduced until

SHOULD WE BATHE BABIES IN THE SINK?

bathing a baby
 This baby is just too cute in that sink. I love love her smooth chocolate complexion. I wish the sharer linked back or mentioned the original poster. I'd love to know who born this little cutie.

This picture was shared on IG and someone left a comment that reads " WTF, IS THAT NOT A WASH HAND BASIN?" I had to bring it here to let us know that it's OK to bathe baby in a clean sink. It's not mandatory for pregnant moms to shop a plastic baby bath tub if one has a clean sink. Yes. we can bathe them in clean sinks and that's even the best tub for new born babies and first time moms who have problems sitting and bending to bathe with the regular plastic tub. It's easier to bathe baby in a clean sink because here  mom stands comfortably and has a better grip on baby while toiletries are neatly arranged on the counter just beside. The only wahala with our Naija

WHEN TO START TAKING BIRTH CONTROL







When you become sexually active is when to start. Birth control pills are way better than abortion. You know that abstinence is the best. Purity before marriage is what we preach but if you must fall into sin with your fiance, better to prevent pregnancy than abort. Unmarried women can take birth control if they are sexually active. Saying "Thou shall not commit fornication doesn't mean that some "about to wed" are not enjoying their pre-matrimonial  bed already. If you cannot hold body, forget withdrawal because it fails more than it prevents pregnancy, forget oral o, because someone has gotten pregnant through

 Image: TheGrio.

People sometimes don't know what to say to those going through this phase, and when they finally say something, you just wish they hadn't. In the journey of waiting on The Almighty, the giver of children, women have heard crazy, heart rending things being said to them. Surprisingly, these statements come from people very close who know their struggle.

1. You are still young, why are you worrying yourself? Yes na, we all know she is still young and she knows also that, if she is not too young yo get married, then she is not too young for anything. 

2. You are too fat, maybe you need to lose weight: Haven't we seen lots of big
