A Kansas woman says people consider her a freak of nature when they find out she has given birth to three sets of twins in just a little over two years.
Over the last 26 months, there’s been joy, sadness and surprise for a Kansas City, Kansas woman. She’s delivered three sets of twins in that short time.
It’s obvious that Danesha Couch, 20, has her hands full when you see her with two-year-old Danarius and one-year-olds Delilah and Davina.
“Three babies walking within a couple of months,” said Couch.
Then you see that she really has her hands full.
She’s holding Dalanie and Darla who were born last month and just came home after three weeks in neonatal intensive care. They’re Couch’s third set of twins and her second with her fiance.
“People just consider me a freak of nature when I tell them,” Couch told Fox4KC.
With no fertility treatment, she had three sets. Her oldest, Danarius, is a twin too. His brother, Desmond, died shortly after birth from complications of prematurity.
“That was a pretty bad time,” Couch recalled.
She thought it was a fluke when she had twins a second time. Why did she become pregnant a third time?
“I love babies,” she said.
What are the odds of having three sets? According to one report from Britain, it’s one in 88,000.
“The fact that you’ve ever done it before makes you more likely to do it again,” said Dr. Elizabeth Wickstrom of Shawnee Mission Medical Center.
