- They ignored this advise and the beautiful kids are now starting pre-school with their matching uniforms
A 35-year old woman,Grace Slattery and her 37-year-old husband, James Slattery, have great reasons to be thankful to God as their set of quadruplets who were conceived without IVF have conquered all odds to start pre-school.
According to The Sun, the couple had struggled for three years with infertility and so they were dumbfounded when they discovered they'd naturally conceived quads. However, doctors advised them to terminate two of the quads as they posed a high risk.
Having lost four pregnancies, this was one advise the couple where not ready to take. Taking the risk eventually paid off for them as they had a successful delivery of their kids; Amelia, Lily-Grace, Mollie and Lucas who weighed between 2lbs and 4lbs.
Although Amelia was born with her organs in the wrong place, she is now as healthy as the other three.
Reports show that the odds of conceiving quads without fertility treatment is one in 700,000.
The adorable inseparable set are a few years older and can't wait to start pre-school and are ready to go with their matching uniforms.
Speaking on the amazing turn of events, their mother Grace had this to say:: "They are definitely little miracles and we still can't believe we got four babies all at once. All of them love school and as they wear a uniform now it makes it a lot easier as trying to think of four outfits for them every day takes a long time.They are going to be in the same classes at school and they are inseparable when together."
Going further, she added: "I couldn't be more proud of the quadruplets and seeing them in their school uniforms is amazing. When I fell pregnant naturally with quadruplets I couldn't believe it as we had struggled for three years and I'd suffered four miscarriages.
We couldn't afford IVF and when tests showed nothing was wrong I was baffled as to why we couldn't have children.I was over the moon when the quadruplets were born in May 2014, and despite being offered to abort two of them before they were even born as they were classed as high risk, we decided to let fate decide."
