I'm Rachael Kirkwood, a 34-year old mother of FIVE beautiful children - Baby Orla, Identical twin boys Niall and Luke (19 months old), Mollie (2 years old), Oliver (aged 7), and step-mum to Oscar (aged 10)! Mollie was only 9 months old when Niall and Luke were born, so all 3 will be in the same school year! I'm married to Paddy, my high school crush.
It's safe to say they all keep me very busy. I decided to set up mumtobe as I've been through a lot of different scenarios in my pregnancies and wanted to share my experiences. I've had a molar pregnancy, a high risk twin pregnancy, 3 single pregnancies, been induced, a forceps delivery, a planned c-section, 2 emergency c-sections, Group B Strep, premature labor 3 times, a baby born at 35 weeks and spent 2 weeks in NICU.
