Raising twins brings challenges and joys to a couple. Imagine raising two sets of twins at the same time. It would definitely be double the challenge and joy!
Through In vitro fertilization (IVF), Josh and Miranda Crawford was able to conceive their first daughter. They had wanted to have two more children so they had another two embryos implanted on Miranda. Destiny had it that the embryos that were implanted split into two and they ended up with four more children at once. What was more amazing was the quadruplets were two sets of identical twins.
After beating the odds of having conceived two sets of identical twins, Miranda was also able to have a healthy pregnancy and delivery at 34 weeks. The quadruplets, who were two girls and two boys, were also healthy despite the risk of having twins.
Good thing, Josh and Miranda are both registered nurses and are notably organized. They even have a method worked out even if they know it would be a great challenge raising five kids.
When you ask how the couple is doing now with double the chaos in their home, aside from all the help they get from the grandparents, relatives and even reporters, Miranda just says that they are already getting a hang of it one day at a time.
We just realized, you know what, we got this. We actually said that to each other. We were high-fiving each other.
Watch how the Crawfords handle their bundles of joy in this video:
What is In vitro fertilization?
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is when a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm is united to form an embryo in a laboratory dish. According to Medline Plus, In vitro means outside the body, and fertilization means the sperm has already attached or entered the egg.
Normally, a baby is conceived when a man and woman engages in intercourse and the egg and sperm are fertilized inside the woman’s body. The fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus and the baby is born 9 months later.
IVF, however, is a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART), by means of special medical techniques to help a woman get pregnant. Most couples opt for IVF when all other means of less expensive fertility techniques have already failed.
