The Connecticut Post reports the death of a 27-year-old woman along with her newborn triplets in Shelton, CT. The woman was discovered by her mother, who found her on the floor of their home along with the full-term babies, all boys. Foul play is not suspected. It is thought that the mother died during childbirth.
The curious part of the story is was is said by police Detective Ben Trabka:
…the family was apparently unaware that Hope [the woman] was pregnant.
There is a show on Discovery Health called I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant that covers the surprise pregnancies of women. It does happen. What I don’t understand is how you would not know you are pregnant with triplets. That doesn’t seem possible.
