Miracle triplets celebrate first Christmas

They were born at 29 weeks, weighting between 2 and 3.5 pounds

Miracle triplets born prematurely during the Covid-19 pandemic are about to celebrate their first Christmas.

Willoughby, Rafferty and Emmeline were born at 29 weeks, on May 28, weighing between 2lb and 3.5lb.

They were whisked into intensive care as soon as they were born and were kept in hospital in both Gloucester and Bristol for eight weeks.

Their mothers, Shelley Davis, 35, and partner Sarah Bell, 33, were unable to see their children for more than two hours after their births.

Before they were born, Ms Davis, whose waters broke at 27 weeks, spent three weeks in hospital in isolation due to Covid-19 and was told she might lose one of the babies if she went home.

Emmeline was born weighing 2.04lb, Willoughby was 2.10lb and Rafferty was the heaviest at 3.5lb.
