Karine Thiriot, 39, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Victoria Thiriot, in Paris after a 15-year struggle to get pregnant. Karine’s dream came true only because her identical twin, Stephanie, donated an ovary to her!
According to the Daily Mail, Karine suffers from Turner Syndrome and was born without ovaries. It’s a syndrome that affects one in 2,500 girls, and occurs when one of the two X chromosomes found in females is completely or partially missing.
Karine, who had tried in-vitro multiple times, had expected to remains infertile for life. But when her twin Stephanie donated one of her own ovaries, Karine was finally able to conceive naturally!
More than a year after the 2009 transplant surgery, Karine finally gave birth to 6-lb., 3-oz. Victoria on March 8. Dr. Guy Kerbrat, who delivered Victoria, says the baby is healthy in all ways and doesn’t suffer from Turner Syndrome!
