Triplets are a type of multiple birth where three babies are born to the same mother during a single pregnancy. Triplets occur when three fertilised eggs implant in the uterus and develop into embryos.

Triplets can be identical or fraternal. Identical triplets occur when a single fertilised egg splits into three embryos, while fraternal triplets occur when three separate eggs are fertilized by three separate sperm.

Triplets are relatively rare, occurring in approximately 1 in every 8,000 births. The birth of triplets can pose unique challenges for parents, including the need for increased medical monitoring during pregnancy, a higher risk of premature birth, and the potential for complications during delivery.

Raising triplets can also present unique challenges for parents, including the need for specialised equipment, increased financial costs, and the demands of caring for three infants at once. However, many parents of triplets find that the experience of raising multiple children is rewarding and fulfilling.
