Woman with two ovaries gives birth to twins in US

Woman with two ovaries gives birth to twins in US

A woman with two wombs in the US gave birth to twins. “Our miracle babies are born!” Kelsey Hatcher, 32, announced her unusual pregnancy. Instagram Documented, Friday.

Birth on different days

The two girls not only grew up in different wombs, but were born on different days: Roxy Laila was born at 7:49pm (local time) on Tuesday, while Rebel was born in Laken at 6:09am on Wednesday.

Her daughters believe they are so “statistically unique” that “they should have their own birthdays,” Hatcher wrote.

According to Hatcher's obstetrician's calculations, the babies should be born on Christmas. Now they were born early enough to be home with their siblings for the holidays: Hatcher and the twins are doing so well that they've already been released from University Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. Hatcher plans to release details about the delivery at a later date.

Two ovaries are extremely rare

Hatcher has known since she was 17 that she had two ovaries. About 0.3 percent of all women suffer from the rare birth defect uterine didelphys. In May, Hatcher, already a mother of three, had an ultrasound scan eight weeks into her pregnancy and learned she was pregnant with twins this time — and that each baby was growing in its own womb.

The chance of conceiving at the same time is 1:50 million.

According to Hatcher's gynecologist Sweda Patel, pregnancy in both ovaries at the same time is rarer than having two ovaries. So the probability is 1 in 50 million. By the way, the probability of being struck by lightning is 1:6 million, and the probability of picking six correct numbers in the lottery is 1:31 million.

The last known case was in Bangladesh in 2019, when 20-year-old Arifa Sultana gave birth to twins 26 days apart.
