World’s First Surviving Septuplets

Having a baby is probably one of the most life-changing experiences. Most new parents find the arrival of just one new baby an overwhelming experience. Can you imagine what it must be like being a parent of a multiple birth? We’re not talking about twins or even triplets but septuplets. That’s right, seven babies on one pregnancy.

It sounds far-fetched, and the chances of the babies even making it through the pregnancy are extremely low, but on occasion women with the help of medical professionals and close care are able to bring these babies to term and into the world. Often times, fertility treatments play a role in helping women conceive their babies so let’s take a closer look at this story.

In 1996 Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey were blessed with the arrival of a healthy baby girl.

They believed their new daughter to be a miracle as Bobbi suffered from issues with her pituitary gland which can cause problems with fertility. They gave their beautiful daughter the name of Mikayla Marie and thought ahead to their next child.
