The family living in Des Moines, Iowa, United States had one daughter, Mikayla Marie, born in 1996. They had experienced fertility challenges before their daughter was born since Bobbi had a failing pituitary gland. The pituitary gland helps to control the body’s functions by producing hormones into the bloodstream. So, the birth of Mikayla was a miracle in itself. Still, the couple wanted a much bigger family and opted for fertility treatment, but they obviously didn’t anticipate a family that big at one go.

Imagine getting pregnant, going to the doctor for a checkup, and receiving news that you are carrying not just one or two babies but seven of them? Yes, you heard that right – seven babies. I imagine you would take it with a lot of mixed feelings – excitement, shock, joy, uncertainty, and so on. Conceiving twins, triplets or even quadruplets is exciting but has very rare chances of occurring. Having septuplets is even unimaginable!  Twenty years ago, that happened to Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey.
