After twelve years of waiting to conceive, a woman gave birth to a set of twins in March 2018. Surprisingly, three months later, she reportedly welcomed another child on the 29th of June, 2018.
The niece of this woman, Chinenye Silva, who shared the story on Facebook explained that after the birth of the twins, her aunt always complained that her stomach kept growing instead of going down. It was later discovered that a baby was growing in her stomach.
On the arrival of the twins, Chinenye wrote:
“I always hear this story or read it on Facebook. But today I am so surprised that it happened to me. Friends, rise up and let us thank God who blessed my aunty with a set of twins (a boy and a girl) after 12years of marriage. Cheiiiii I call him Jehovah over-do, odogwu akataka, nwoke m ji eme onu. If I continue, I will not finish. Please call him what you can. Rejoice with me.”
When the third child was birthed, she wrote again:
Cheiiiiiiiiiiii….. Remember when I shared the first picture of my aunty that gave birth to twins after 12years of marriage. Just yesterday, another baby came from same stomach only 3months after.
She always complained of her stomach growing instead of going down after giving brith to the twins not knowing that one child was still remaining there.
The baby boy came forth yesterday which is the second picture. People, this is three months after. Since I was born and now I’m getting old, I have not seen this type of miracle. That is why I call him Jehovah Over-do, Omalichachukwu, Odogwu, Ome ihe nyiri mmadu na omumu, Onye ana akpo otu oku oza ugboro iri.
Friends, please call Him names and rejoice with me. So, my Aunty have triplet; two boys and a girl, twelve years after marriage in a miraculous way.
Like Chinenye, some people described the birth as a miracle while some people said it couldn’t be true.
Meanwhile, some people doubted the possibility of such happening:
“All those people patronizing these baby factories and buying, selling and stealing people’s children God’s wrath will visit you one day. It’s called stealing and not miracle.
By the way no agency is investigating these births? In western countries investigation and verification takes place on such matters,” someone commented on social media.
For another commenter, such occurrence was possible having witnessed one:
“It is highly possible. My dad has a tenant who years ago gave birth to another baby three months after the first was delivered. Infact, she had even done child dedication for the first baby and was planning to resume work but kept complaining of movement in her tummy. She went back to the hospital where she was delivered but they couldn’t detect any problem. Then, three months later another baby came forth.”
Medical Science Proofs
According to medical science, it is possible for a woman to birth a baby, days or months after having a baby. The process is called superfetation, where a woman gets pregnant while pregnant.
According to Healthline, superfetation is when a second, new pregnancy occurs during an initial pregnancy. Another ovum (egg) is fertilized by sperm and implanted in the womb days or weeks later than the first one.
While superfetation is common in other animal species, like fish, hares, and badgers, it’s occurrence in humans is said to be extremely rare and most cases occurred in women undergoing fertility treatments like IVF.
