The new mom conceived the babies one month apart and carried them successfully in each uterus — beating 50-million-to-one odds!
Indian Rinku Devi, 28, didn’t realize she had an extra womb until she went into labor on July 29 — doctors thought she was carrying twins and were stunned to discover the incredible truth!
“I got to know about having two uteruses when I was already in labor pain,” Rinku, from Muzaffarpur, India reveals.
“I didn’t know how to react. I was in pain and quite scared. I had not heard of anything like this before. I got to know about the rarity and severity of this condition days after my delivery.”
“I am very happy and feel proud to have survived through this. When I was told I was carrying twins, I thought they would look the same, but I am happy they look different. I want to thank God for giving me a new life.”
Both babies were born premature, by C-section, weighing just 4lbs and 4oz and 3lbs and 3oz respectively. They are healthy and mom and sons are doing well!
It’s rare but not unheard of for women to have two wombs — but the chances of carrying a baby in each one at the same time are an incredible one-in-50 million, doctors say.
They truly are miracle babies!
