What Are Multiple Births? When a woman get more than one infant in her uterus during pregnancy, they are called “multiples.” When a mom gives birth to twins, triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, sextuplets, or even more babies, it is termed multiple birth.

Motherhood made me realize the amount of inner strength that I never knew I had. Being a mum has taught me the act of patience, kindness, selflessness and commitment. Motherhood is more than wearing the title, its about wanting more for your children even if it is more than you’ve had.
