After reading the story about a mum who had 4 babies in 11 months that we ran a couple of days ago, we didn’t expect we’d hear anything quite like it so soon!
But mum Lytina Kaur’s story is truly incredible.
She welcomed 4 babies in 9 months – after suffering 17 miscarriages and being told by doctors she’d never give birth.
Aged just 17, Lytina was told she’d never give birth a year after being diagnosed with leukaemia.
She endured 6 months of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and eventually a bone marrow transplant.
“When I had my transplant I was told I couldn’t have children because of my leukaemia,” she told the Nottingham Post.
“I thought I would think about it when I crossed that bridge as I was still quite young at the time.
“However, when I got married at 23, it was heartbreaking.”
Over the years, Lytina had 17 miscarriages and a failed IVF cycle, before welcoming her 1st child, a daughter named Kiran, in September 2015.
She’d been planning to go through a 2nd cycle of IVF when she and her husband discovered she was expecting naturally.
2 months later in November, twins Kajal and Kavita were born via a surrogate in India.
Lytina and her husband had previously tried to implant embryos into a surrogate numerous times – and each attempt had been unsuccessful – so ‘as a goodwill gesture’ the hospital in India implanted the last 4 into a surrogate.
Then, in June 2016, Lytina gave birth for the 2nd time, and named her 4th little one Kiyara.
