A woman who was told she may never become a mother after being born with two reproductive systems has given birth to a total of four children. The condition — which affects around one in 3, women - meant she was born with two uteruses, two cervixes and, in her case, two vaginas. The primary school teacher was told that carrying and delivering children would be difficult because her wombs and cervixes were half the size of an average woman. But, against the odds, Mrs Cotter and childhood sweetheart husband Ben, 33, have become parents to Amelie, five, Harvey, three, and month-old twins Maya and Evie.
As a result, there is a double uterus with two separate cervicesand possibly a double vagina as well.
Laurie Martino was 26 years old and in the middle of giving birth to her first child when she learned she has two uteruses. Looking back, the other health issues she'd dealt with for most of her life should have been a tipoff. At 3 years old, she was diagnosed with kidney reflux disorder after an onslaught of urinary tract infections, and underwent surgery at 9 to correct the problem. She didn't get her period until she was 16, and even then it was irregular, with cramping that felt like contractions.
