In a one-in-500 million chance, a woman who has two wombs conceived in both wombs simultaneously and has now given birth to twins in Camborne, England.

Jennifer Ashwood, 31, and her husband Andrew House found out they were expecting twins in December 2017. Two months later it was revealed she was suffering from bicornuate uterus, a condition where a woman has two wombs. They were told that both babies were growing in separate wombs. 

She went into labour at 34 weeks and gave birth to son Piran and daughter Poppy via cesarean. Two weeks later, the twins were sent home after a treatment for jaundice.

In most cases, women with this condition can only carry one baby in one uterus however in this case, she ovulated and released two eggs which fertilized and remained in separate sections of the uterus.

Jennifer said: “To have the two uterus’ is rare in itself, but to have an egg in both, then those to be fertilised and then for both eggs to be in the right part, it’s a bit of a miracle. It is ridiculously rare. The odds were stacked against us but it all worked out. You think that you know your body well, but it turns out you might not.”

“It’s crazy when you think about it. It’s possible that the fertilisation could have occurred one or even two days apart, but it was from the same time. We found out at the 20-week scan and ever since people have been saying how rare it was,” She added.

    A lot of whatever you state is supprisingly accurate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. Your piece truly did switch the light on for me as far as this issue goes. However there is one particular point I am not necessarily too comfy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the position, allow me see exactly what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Well done.
