When a couple welcomed twins after almost a year of IVF treatment, they were overjoyed. With highly slim chances of getting pregnant again, they thought they were done having kids until they were surprised most unexpectedly.

Nothing compares to the pure bliss of becoming parents to adorable little ones and seeing them grow up in front of your eyes. Many couples might endure endless bouts of pain, trauma, and struggle before experiencing parental joy.

In short, parenthood is a rollercoaster ride filled with multiple twists and turns that might take an emotional toll on people. But it's all worth it because no parent will have it any other way.

The same was true for Michella Meier-Morsi and her husband, Mark Morsi.

WELCOMING THE TWINS

Nearly four years ago, in 2018, the couple from Copenhagen, Denmark, became parents for the first time after a challenging journey. They received IVF treatment for more than a year  when Michella discovered she was pregnant in October 2017.

The Danish woman recalled that she felt happy and scared when she learned about her pregnancy. She had read various statistics and posts about complications of twin births and didn't know how to ward off her fear.

The twin girls, Filippa and Ophelia, were born at 37 weeks,

 and the pregnancy was incredibly cumbersome for Michella. She shared that her body was in grotesque pain and became  so enormous and swollen that she had trouble walking.

THE PREGNANCY TOOK A SEVERE TOLL

The mom of twins shared her birth experience on Instagram, where netizens could follow her journey more closely. Following the birth, Michella stayed in the hospital for six days and  returned home with her twin girls before Christmas 2018.

The pregnancy took an enormous toll on her body, and soon afterward,  the doctors told her she had "Diastasis recti," a gap of about 2.7 cm or more between the two sides of her rectus abdominis muscle.

SLIM CHANCES OF GETTING PREGNANT AGAIN

Her left and right abdominal muscles had separated to make more room for the lower belly with a protruding uterus. Michella explained that typically, the abdominal muscles healed on their own after pregnancy,  but that couldn't happen to her without surgery.

Michella openly shared her journey on Instagram, posting pictures of her belly and expressing her thoughts and feelings.

Her posts amassed millions of views, and several netizens flooded her comments section, encouraging her to keep raising her voice.

Meanwhile, Filippa and Ophelia continued to thrive, and the Danish couple underwent another fertility treatment. However, the couple learned  their chances of having kids again were only 12-15%, so they didn't invest much hope.
