Woman With 2 Wombs Delivers Twins

A Michigan woman with two wombs has given birth to twin daughters, one from each uterus.

Last week, Sarah Reinfelder, 21, gave birth to Kaylin Joy and Valerie Marie seven weeks premature. Reinfelder has a condition known as uterus didelphys, and such twin births are rare. The uteri are different sizes, and Valerie Marie, who was in the larger uterus, weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces, one pound more than her sister. The babies don’t have fully developed lung function and doctors expect they will be hospitalized for three to four weeks. [MSNBC]
