Canadian woman gives birth to naturally born triplets

A Canadian couple has shattered the odds with the birth of naturally conceived, identical triplets.

Thea and Phil Willson became the proud parents of Daniella, Alexis and Gemma on February 29, 10 weeks before the babies’ expected due date.

Naturally born identical triplets are born at a rate of one in 20 million, said Michael Bernard of Fraser Health, the regional health authority that oversees the hospital where the baby was delivered.

Most triplets are conceived with the help of fertility drugs, but the Willsons did it naturally.

“We were totally shocked,” Thea Willson said, recalling her reaction when she first discovered she would be the mother of three.

“Now we’re just really happy we have all three of them and they are all healthy,” she said Thursday. What else can you say, we’re really thankful.”

Thea Willson was able to hold her daughters for the first time on Wednesday. The babies weigh between 910 grams and 1.5 kilograms, and are expected to remain in the hospital at least until their original due date, in early June.

Selena Mohammad, a spokesman for neonatal services at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, where the babies were delivered, says even veteran staff members are awestruck.

“The rarity, it’s amazing, it’s huge,” Mohammad said. Thea Willson took it in stride as she joked about her new family.

“We’ve always wanted to have more than one. So we had them all at once, she said.
