    Mum of quadruplets illustrates the reality of giving birth with honest snap

    The truth behind this photo: Mum of quadruplets, 30, posts a ‘brave’ snap to show why people should NEVER judge others on face value

    • A mother has illustrated the reality of childbirth by sharing two snaps of herself
    • In one of the photos, Natalie Maree, from WA, can be seen smiling in a T-shirt 
    • In the other, she pulled up T-shirt to reveal her five-week post-partum stomach
    • Thousands of parents praised the young mum for sharing her ‘brave’ snap
    • Natalie had her quadruplets naturally after struggling with her fertility for years 

    A mother has illustrated the reality of childbirth by sharing two pictures of herself after having her quadruplet babies naturally in July.

    In one of the photos, Natalie Maree, from Roebourne in Western Australia, can be seen smiling in a T-shirt, while in the other she has pulled the T-shirt up to reveal her five-week post-partum stomach.

    ‘If I only posted the first picture, the comments would have been along the lines of “you look great for just having quads”,’ Natalie posted on Instagram.

    ‘If I only posted the second photo I would’ve received “you should be so proud of what your body has done”.’

    The 30-year-old mum-of-five said while there were ‘parts of her’ that wanted to only post the first photo, there was another part of her that wanted to ‘prevent a false sense of reality’ and only share the second.

    ‘But the reality is I grew four miracles in this belly,’ Natalie said.

    ‘The reality is I feel beautiful in the first photo. The reality is I am god damn proud of what my body has done and can do.’

    Natalie added: ‘The reality is I’d be lying to myself and all of you if I said I loved what my belly looks like now’.

    Natalie’s honest post resonated with thousands of parents around the world, who thanked the mum for ‘keeping it real’ and being so ‘brave’.

    ‘Absolutely no one can tell you how you should feel,’ one fellow mum posted.

    ‘They can certainly comment on how beautiful you look. But, I know personally that doesn’t help you.’

    She added: ‘I only grew twins and I hate my stomach. But, I was blessed with two healthy beautiful babies and this is what gets me through’.

    Natalie (pictured) and her husband Kahn had struggled for years with fertility issues before they had their quadruplets this year, as the 30-year-old has anovulation

    Natalie (pictured) and her husband Kahn had struggled for years with fertility issues before they had their quadruplets this year, as the 30-year-old has anovulation

    What is anovulation?

    * Anovulation occurs when an egg does not release, or ovulate, from a woman’s ovaries. 

    * Chronic anovulation is a common cause of infertility. According to the National Institutes of Health, these conditions account for almost 30 percent of female infertility. 

    * Anovulation is typically, although not always, coupled with irregular or lack of menstruation. However, with anovulatory cycles, there may be bleeding, which a woman may mistake for a normal menstruation, although this would only rarely occur on a regular, monthly basis.

    Natalie and her husband Kahn had struggled for years with fertility issues before they had their quadruplets this year.

    Natalie was diagnosed with ‘unexplained infertility’, called ‘anovulation’, and required ovulation induction – or injecting hormones to stimulate regular ovulation – before she finally became pregnant with their daughter Kiki in 2018.  

    ‘Twins run in my family and I’d been told that there was a small chance of a multiple pregnancy with this treatment, but I could never have anticipated what would happen next,’ Natalie wrote for Kidspot previously.

    ‘When we went for our first pregnancy scan, I saw two sacs appear on the screen and I started crying because I thought we were having twins. Kahn started crying too.’   

    Natalie and Kahn’s quadruplets, Maioha Kahn (2.3kg), Frankee Gene (1.92kg), Marley Rose (2.2kg) and Maddison Grace (2.1kg) were born on July 21 within the space of minutes. 

    The mum continues to share updates from her family of seven on Instagram. For more information, please click here
