A woman with two wombs has reportedly given birth to twins only a month after she gave birth to a premature baby boy in Bangladesh.
Arifa Sultana, a 20-year-old woman from Bangladesh has birthed a set of twins only a month after having a baby boy, all this because Sultana has two wombs.
According to the report sighted on Dailymail.co.uk by YEN.com.gh, Sultana was just getting used to motherhood after having her first child in February of 2019.
But 26 days later, Sultana was shocked when her water broke again, and was rushed to hospital in the Jessore district.
Unknown to doctors, she had another two babies that were ready to be delivered at that moment.

It was that point Sultana was told that she had a double uterus. Doctors told her it was a very rare condition a woman may have from birth without realising.
But experts have queried how two heartbeats had been missed by doctors who took care of Sultana in her prenatal days.
The twin babies, one boy and one girl, are however healthy with no complications although they were never monitored throughout the pregnancy.
Sultana and her husband, Sumon Biswas, were able to take all three children home on Tuesday, March 26, 2019.

A double uterus, uterus didelphys, often causes no symptoms, and is present from birth.
Women who have a double uterus can still successfully have children but it could increase their chances of miscarriage or premature birth.
