Miracles do happen... even in maternity homes in Ukraine

A woman from the city of Zhytomyr gave birth to triplets, she was expecting twins

A 29-year old woman from Zhytomyr in Ukraine gave birth to triplets even though she was expected to have twins. It became a real surprise not only for her and her husband, but also for doctors. All ultrasound scans showed she was pregnant with a twin.

Zhanna Ivanova's birthing started too soon. The woman was admitted to the regional maternity clinic delivering three boys into this world - each being two kilograms. Even though they are 2 months early, they are all healthy. And these three newly-born boys have yet another brother waiting for them at home.
