HUGGING an armful of babies, Chenoa Trama says, "I feel great, very blissed out."

The Yandina Creek mum had just given birth naturally to a set of healthy triplets in only 14 minutes.

"Being able to birth them naturally was just awe inspiring for me," Mrs Trama said.

The hospital setting was a change for Chenoa who water-birthed her and husband Daniel's two other children, five-year-old Jordan and three-year-old Amali, at home.

"We went from one extreme to the other - and I was very determined not to have a c-section and it all worked out in the end," she said.

Isaac Daniel weighing 2.42kg was born at 9.47pm at 34 weeks, followed by brother Dylan David (2.845kg) and sister Ailah Elizabeth (2.31kg).

"My water broke at 8pm and we left home not long after," Chenoa said.

"Daniel wheeled me into the delivery suite, I stood up and instantly said, 'I need to push now'.

"Isaac came out not long later and then 11 minutes later Dylan came out breach, and three minutes later, Ailah.

"It all happened so fast and easy. Each time they scanned me in between the babies, the next baby was lined up ready to go.

"If everything is safe and everything lines up you can birth multiples naturally, it can be done.

"There are a couple of other women in Australia who have done it and I'm now one."

Nambour General Hospital nurse unit manager Linda Pallett commended Chenoa.

"We're in awe of this lady. She managed to carry three babies, greater than 7kg of weight, for 34 weeks," she said.

"It happened so quickly and smoothly, she took a lot of the work away from the staff."

Ms Pallett said her midwifery staff were "fabulous" and handled the situation perfectly.

"Babies coming very quickly causes a lot of stress," she said.

Asked whether she planned to have any more children Chenoa said: "No I think we're good. We only have one spot left in the van."
