A mum who struggled to fall pregnant for a decade had TRIPLETS after she conceived one baby through IVF and twins naturally – in the same week.
Beata Bienias, 36, had begun to give up hope of ever becoming a mother due to issues with her health including polycystic ovaries, brought on by weighing over 17 stone.
But she lost weight and the new mum got more than she ever dreamed of when she finally fell pregnant with one baby through IVF.
But miraculously she had also conceived twins just days before her embryo transfer.
The pregnancy has been described by one fertility expert as “almost impossible”,
It means Beata and her husband Pawel, 40, are now parents to four-week-old Amelia and twins Matylda and Borys.
The besotted mum was told by stunned doctors her non-identical twins were conceived naturally just a few days before her IVF embryo transfer on May 2 last year.
And the stunned parents were still unaware that Beata was already pregnant at the time she discovered her IVF treatment had been successful.
Factory worker Beata, from Corsham, Wiltshire, said: “It was the biggest miracle. I never thought something this incredible could happen to me.
“I spent many days thinking that maybe I was the person who would never have a baby.
I never, ever thought there would be three in there.
“I still can’t quite believe it when I look at the three of them. I’m so happy,” she added.
Fertility expert Emma Cannon, who has worked in the field for 25 years and founded the Emma Cannon Clinic in Chelsea, London, was stunned to hear of Beata’s triplets.
She said: “In my 25 years as a fertility specialist, I have only come across one or two scenarios in which women have fallen pregnant whilst undergoing IVF treatment.
