Breastfeeding in the Hospital Welcome to the November Carnival of Breastfeeding. This month we're looking at breastfeeding experiences in hospital so make sure to check out all the other posts listed below.

Sorry if this offends, but I can't help feeling the following story shows a complete disrespect for the miracle that is human life. I know women in the times gone by  used to have very large families but in those days many died in infancy and women didn't have the choice of contraceptive devices and pills that they have now. The fact that this woman's motive for getting pregnant is to simply to fulfil a selfish desire to have twins is disturbing to say the least...

A mother expecting her 14th child has vowed to keep having children until she has twins.

Sara Foss, 39, already picks up £50,000 in benefits every year.

She said: 'All I've ever wanted is twins or triplets. It's my biggest wish, and I'm going to keep trying until I do it.

'It would be fantastic. In fact, I won't stop trying until I've done it. I love having babies - it's the most wonderful thing in the world.'

Mother-of-13 Sara Foss named nine-month-old son Voorhees after the killer in the Friday The 13th movies, while her seven-year-old is called Frodo after The Lord Of The Rings character.
