COVENTRY - Last month, a Montana woman made news after giving birth to identical spontaneous triplets, conceived without the aid of fertility drugs. Considered very rare, this occurs in about one in a million pregnancies. But, it's a situation that Lauren Wardwell of Coventry knows well.
"I want to pick up the phone and call them and say, 'It's crazy, it's nuts but enjoy it! It's special!'" laughs this mom of identical triplets, Nathan, Sam and Scott, who have a big sister, Sophia.
As the boys celebrate their third birthday this week, Wardwell and her husband, Sean, are reflecting on their unique journey with multiples, which has been undeniably complicated yet incredibly joyful.
