A lady from Cornwall who had been informed that she can never bear children, has given birth to triplets.
Sam Paciuszko, 31, gave birth to two girls and a boy, each weighing just 2lb.
Earlier, Paciuszko was told there was only a 30 per cent chance of all three surviving but they are now gaining weight and "doing well" as they are treated in three different hospitals for specialist treatment.
This implies that the couple will have to make 400-mile round trips to see each one in turn.
The babies, Martha, Evie and Harry, are still in incubators in intensive care.
They are not expected to return home until March, the month they were originally due, reports the Telegraph.
Paciuszko was told she would never conceive because her body was not producing eggs but she began fertility treatment when she married her husband Andrew, a postman.
