Woman With Two Wombs Pregnant

Filed under: In The News, Weird But True

For Lindsay Hasaj's unborn baby, life began with a multiple choice quiz. That's because Lindsay has two complete reproductive systems ... or two wombs.

Because she's physically normal on the outside, the 27-year-old had no idea her about her one-in-a-million anatomy until she conceived. But an ultrasound revealed that not only was she carrying a healthy fetus, she was also carrying an extra uterus.

Doctors say that though uterine abnormalities are common, to have two complete sets of reproductive organs is unusual. "Having uterus didelphys halves the chance of falling pregnant. There is only a 50 per cent chance of the sperm fertilising via the vagina that is ovulating at that time," explains Lindsay's doctor.

A close friend of mine learned during a c-section that her uterus is actually divided in half, and doctors discovered her healthy, full-term baby thriving in half the typical womb space. She felt both shock and wonder at the time, emotions I bet Lindsay and her husband Tony are feeling right now ... times ten.
