Now their youngest daughters, Rivers, Rayne, and Rawlings, and sons, Lake, Blue, and Tug, are almost four years old.
Their parents met in high school, and after the wedding, they both decided that they wanted to have a big and friendly family with children who would fill the house with joy and children’s laughter.
However, after the birth of her first child, Saylor, Courtney could not have a second child. Unfortunately, several pregnancies were terminated due to miscarriages.
But the Waldrops didn’t give up hope of becoming parents again.After a couple of years, they decided to seek the help of doctors and underwent an IVF procedure. As a result, two more sons were born: Wells and Bridge.
But for complete happiness they still lacked a girl. When the younger boys were five years old, the couple decided to make another attempt to have a daughter, but this time Courtney could not carry the fetus.
The 35-year-old parents turned to the reproductive center again.
To increase their chances of a successful pregnancy, six fertilized eggs were implanted into the mother-to-be, and to the doctors’ surprise, they all took root and began to fully develop.
Although Eric and Courtney were a little nervous, they happily accepted the news that they could be parents to multiple babies.
By the way, the doctors immediately warned the couple that carrying so many embryos is extremely difficult for the future mother.
Among the possible risks and pathologies, the doctors mentioned anemia, serious heart strain and even stroke, in addition, the risks of developing pathologies were increasing among newborns.
Despite fears, the parents-to-be opted out of selective reduction, a method in which the number of fetuses is artificially reduced to give the remaining ones a better chance of survival.
Courtney was very afraid for the health of her unborn children and her own children, as she already had three boys, ages eight and five. However, future parents did not dare to interrupt the lives of their babies.
In order to reduce the risks, the woman went for conservation already in the sixth month of pregnancy. She was ordered to spend most of her time lying down so as not to induce premature labor.
On December 11, 2017, six healthy children were born to Eric and Courtney Waldrop.The young mother was helped by an impressive team of dozens of doctors.The children were admitted by caesarean section.
Today, parents of many children are absolutely happy, months of sleepless nights and almost continuous feeding are behind them.The children are healthy, and their dream of having a noisy and happy family came true.
