Overview

With the advent of advanced medical treatments for infertility, the world has witnessed an explosion in the number of pregnancies of multiples. More and more families thus find themselves to be expecting not just twins, but also triplets and other higher order multiples. While many books explore the pregnancy and birth of twins, very few offer firsthand, narrative accounts of the pregnancy and birth of multiples greater than twins. Triple Treasures: Our Journey from Infertility through the First Year with Triplets provides such needed insight by chronicling the experiences of the author and her husband in their struggles with infertility through their first year of first-time parenthood to three babies, who all arrived at the same time.

Meet the Author

Holland Kirbo is the mother of fraternal triplets, two boys and a girl. She and her husband struggled for over two years to conceive, ultimately undergoing fertility treatments in order to overcome infertility problems. After their last round of such treatments, the couple unexpectedly conceived their triplets, who arrived nine and a half weeks early and spent nearly five weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). As a result, the couple received a crash course in the nature and care of premature infants and on navigating the intimidating bells and whistles of the NICU. Once the babies were discharged, the couple had to quickly learn the ropes of baby-raising, times three. Holland has both a business degree in accounting and a law degree from the University of Georgia and is currently employed as in-house counsel for a publicly traded company. She and her family live in Moultrie, Georgia.
