In 2013, again, a whole new journey began for Sarita Khalsa (previously Saltmarsh) when she gave birth to her triplets, Yasmin, Suntaj, and Zarine Saltmarsh.
Soon she would become known across the world, as The Miracle Mum and her triplets would be The Miracle Triplets.
Yasmin was born on the 28th of February 2013, eight days ahead of her siblings at home, unannounced, at a mere 26 weeks and one day, her siblings came along in hospital, at 27 weeks and two days.
They broke a 19 year, World Record for triplets surviving pregnancy where the babies are born days apart. This is called an interval pregnancy. Sarita was pregnant for the whole eight days.
The pregnancy, which in itself was a textbook pregnancy, but The Miracle Mum experienced challenge after challenge because she had illnesses and challenges from prior to the pregnancy, resulting from early as childhood trauma and even earlier, which left her with many issues on a physical level, but also on an emotional and mental level. She had trouble dealing with the pregnancy itself.
The triplets are also donor eggs. This in itself created a challenge. On top of everything else from 11 weeks, Sarita was bound to a wheelchair. The morning sickness didn’t go away at all – 24/7.
The triplets were coming into a mixed family. Sarita already had children from a previous marriage so challenges were inevitable.
Some of the topics the author talks about in her book are how to manage sibling rivalry, custody battles and split families. IVF. Donor eggs sperm donation, and many other topics which will interest many across the globe.
In this book, Sarita demonstrates how, despite all these challenges, pre-existing conditions and illnesses, life can still work out.
Life can still be amazing, and miracles can still happen to the best of us. No matter what the day brings, there’s always a silver lining. We can all create miracles. Sarita certainly did. And you can too. Read this book to find out how!
