Motherhood is an experience filled with exhilaration, exhaustion, and little praise. However, one woman doesn't mind at all, taking the weight of the world on her shoulders and leaving other moms wholly confounded as to how she does it all.

36-year-old Veronica Merritt from New York is a loving parent with a huge heart and a huge family. She is eager to have many more kids with her 37-year-old husband, Marty.

Due to her kidney disease, this mom can't use contraceptives. This makes her slightly more prone to conceiving children, which has led her down a surprising path.

YOUNG AND TERRIFIED

This New Yorker first fell pregnant at only 14 years old. Taking to Tiktok, the mom shared her story, where she stressed:

"I was scared because I had no idea how to take care of a baby."

Luckily the new mother's delivery was smooth, natural, and painless. Her firstborn came into the world precisely on time at a perfect weight and without any pain. This child named Victoria is now 21 years old with ten younger siblings.

AFRAID NO MORE

Now, 11 children later, Merritt has just announced that she will be having another baby. Taking to Instagram, the 36-year-old shared a video of the sonogram, penning:

"Unjust rules must be broken. Or something like that.😂"

This comment was about a sign below the sonogram screen that prohibited individuals from recording. Humorously, the mother included the hashtag #cheaperbythedozen.
