She Gave Birth To Two Sets Of Twins Back To Back - Receives Shocking News

Having twins can be difficult for any parent, but imagine having three sets of twins. That’s what life is like for Danesha Couch of Kansas. The 20-year-old gave birth to her third set of twins in two years earlier this year.

"I was surprised on my second time because me and their dad were discussing it, jokingly," Couch told ABC News. "I said, 'This is not happening right now. Pinch me.' [My fiance] pinched me, and it was reality."

Her first set of twins, Desmond and Danarius, were born in April 2014. However, Desmond died shortly after birth from a placental abruption.

"It's been pretty tough," Couch said. "I tend to cry about it one minute, and then I am happy again. I do hope one day [Danarius] doesn't tell me he feels empty and alone (without his brother)."

She had Delilah and Davina in May 2015, and Darla and Dalanie in June. All of the twins are fraternal twins and Couch said she didn’t use any fertility drugs to conceive.

"It's partly statistical and it's partly genetic," Dr. Marjorie Greenfield, the obstetrics and gynecology chief at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, said. "She probably doesn't release two eggs every single month, but there are people that are genetically prone to releasing two eggs. The way you get fraternal twins is by releasing two eggs. Identicals are not formed by releasing two eggs. If you release more eggs, therefore, you have a greater chance of having twins. Having that hit three times gets unusual, but not impossible."
