Woman With Two Reproductive Organs Conceives Children

The Story of How This Woman With 2 Vaginas and Cervixes Conceived 2 Miracle Babies

Faye Wilkins was born with a rare condition, uterus didelphys, that caused her to have two sets of reproductive systems — meaning, two vaginas and two cervixes. The 31-year-old British woman was actually unaware of the condition for quite some time, since the differences are only internally notable, not externally visible.

After being told by doctors that it would be very difficult to conceive, she had resigned herself to the notion that she would never give birth to children of her own. Yet years later, Wilkins gave birth to her two miracle babies.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Wilkins explained how she had experienced an alarming rupture at a young age that resulted in surgery: "I had surgery to make my two vaginas into one to prevent my uterus rupturing again. I was warned after my diagnosis that it would be difficult to conceive due to reproductive organs being half the size they should be, making implantation harder." Consequently, Wilkins experienced five miscarriages.

After getting pregnant the sixth time, however, Wilkins was able to carry the baby to term in her left womb and gave birth to Molly, who is now 7 years old. She said, "Thankfully she was a little fighter and she held on for as long as she could before being delivered by a C-section seven weeks and two days early." Five years later, she conceived again, this time in her right womb, and gave birth to George, who is now 2 years old.

When asked if she plans to conceive again, Wilkins said, "I don't have plans for any more children, I already have two beautiful kids and couldn't be happier — I'm the luckiest woman in the world."
