Woman with two uteruses delivers twins

In Clearwater, Florida, MSNBC is reporting that a woman with two uteruses has recently given birth to twins. Andrea Barbosa said that she was diagnosed with the condition, known as uterus didelphys, about four years ago. In order to get pregnant with the twins, eggs had to be released into each uterus and fertilized at the same time. Her doctor put the odds of that happening at around 1 in 5 million.

Barbosa’s pregnancies were conceived without the help of any fertility medication. The twins were delivered via c-section on September 15. Barbosa’s doctor said the pregnancy was otherwise healthy and uneventful. The babies have a 2-year-old sister, and both twins are said to be in excellent health.
