Woman Born With Two Vaginas And Two Cervixes Becomes A Mother-Of-Four

The rare condition saw her born with two vaginas, two cervixes, and two wombs.

A woman who had believed she might never become a mother after being born with two reproductive systems has disregarded the odds and has become a mother-of-four.

Lauren Cotter, 34, was earlier diagnosed with uterus didelphys at age 16 after experiencing years of agonizing period cramps. Same condition, affecting around 1 in 3,000 women gave Lauren two uteruses, two cervixes as well as two vaginas.

Lauren and her childhood lover and husband  Ben, 33, have finally become parents to 15-month-old twins, Maya and Evie, Harvey, 3, and Amelie, 5

Due to her condition, Lauren had been told she won’t be able to carry or deliver her own children since her cervixes and wombs were half the size of an average woman.

Well, against the odds, Lauren and her childhood lover and husband  Ben, 33, have finally become parents to 15-month-old twins, Maya and Evie, Harvey, 3, and Amelie, 5.

Very possible! Lauren carried all the girls in the right womb while Harvey, 3, had grown on her left. Lauren from Melbourne, Australia said: ‘From quite an early stage, Ben and I discussed having children and it was apparent that he wanted to be a dad. I knew I had to be honest by telling him that might not be possible with me.’

‘Luckily for me, Ben wasn’t bothered, so we talked it through and decided that there were several means of having a baby if we wanted it that badly. Actually, we have found it easy to fall pregnant. I am not sure why, or if it has anything to do with my two vaginas.’

The mother met husband Ben at 17 and the pair married in 2012

Twins Maya and Evie after being born on June 5, 2018, weighs 5lb 13oz and 5lb 4oz respectively.

Mrs. Cotter conceived the twins despite being fitted with a contraceptive implant

Starting her menstrual periods at age 14, Lauren soon began suffering painful cramps and heavy bleeding.’ Afterward, an ultrasound revealed she has Uterus didelphys, which happens when a uterus fails to fuse properly during the development in the womb.
