Pregnant With Quadruplets, 38 Years Old And Unemployed, Her Family Wants Her Abortion. 14 Years Later, Here Are His Children


Being a single mother and unemployed can be very hard to support a child. But when a mother in this situation gives birth to 4 babies, it can be even more difficult. This is the case of this mother who had quadruplets after in vitro fertilization.



What is in vitro fertilization?

In vitro fertilization is one of the most well-known types of assisted reproductive technology. This type of fertilization allows the union of sperm and egg to fertilize and this happens in the laboratory and the transfer of fertilized embryos into the womb of the mother. It is a complex series of procedures used to treat fertility or genetic problems and assist in the conception of a child.






What is the IVF process?
The first step in IVF is to take fertility-boosting drugs for several months to help the ovaries produce several mature eggs ready for fertilization. This is called ovulation induction. The woman can have regular ultrasounds or blood tests to measure her hormone levels and monitor her egg production.

Once the ovaries have produced enough ripe oocytes, the doctor takes them from the woman's body, which is called oocyte retrieval. This operation is a minor surgery performed at the doctor's office or in a fertility clinic.

The chances of having a healthy baby using IVF depend on many factors, such as the age and cause of infertility. In addition, IVF can be tedious and expensive. If more than one embryo is implanted in the uterus, IVF can lead to pregnancy with more than one fetus, ie multiple pregnancy.

In this article we will expose the case of one of these pregnancies resulting from the in vitro fertilization and which allowed the birth of several children!




A dream come true
At the beginning of 2003, Beth Goodman, a 38-year-old single woman with no stable income, wanted to have children at all costs, and considering her age, she thought that if she did not do it quickly, she would never be able to have children again. children. So she started in vitro fertilization. She had already tried this procedure but it was not effective. Beth decided to give herself one last chance.

This woman was ready to be a mother, but she did not have high hopes. When her doctor told her that she was expecting quadruplets, she was shocked.

On November 11, 2003, Beth delivered four babies by Caesarean section two months before the expected date of delivery. The babies were immediately placed in the neonatal intensive care unit.



In an interview she gave at The Oprah Show in 2004, Beth, who became a mother, said that she cried, not of joy, but of tears for what was waiting for her and what she had to do because given her situation, she had not considered having quadruplets.

To Beth's delight, her babies, who are three boys and one girl, managed to survive. When she came home with her children, the new mom realized that there was a difficult path to go.

She now had a lot of responsibilities and the lack of support from her family made things even more difficult. Beth and her quadruplets made the headlines and many criticized her and said she was selfish in making the decision to give birth to the four babies.




Some people said that since this woman did not have the financial means to care for four babies, the taxpayers will have to take care of her and they were against the fact that they will have to pay for the children of a woman who just wanted to have some.

On the show with Oprah, Beth said she was not expecting charity and she wanted to get by on her own. She also expressed gratitude to all who have been generous with her.




Things worked really well
In 2013, Oprah found the little family again. The quadruplets were 10 years old and the family was well. Beth found a job as a real estate agent and she also worked as an event planner.

Many people congratulated the mother, and many people expressed their admiration for this fighting mother who does her best and works hard to provide for her children without asking anyone for help.

In 2018. The Goodmans are a happy family and the children have already started high school. Feel free to share the beautiful story of this family!
