Woman Born with Two Vaginas, two Wombs and two Cervices Speaks Out

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.

Lauren Cotter, 34, was diagnosed with uterus didelphys aged 16 following years of  agonising period pains.

The condition – which affects around one in 3,000 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.

Lauren Cotter, 34, and childhood sweetheart husband Ben, 33, have become parents to Amelie, five, Harvey, three, and 15-month-old twins Maya and Evie against the odds

But, against the odds, Mrs Cotter and childhood sweetheart husband Ben, 33, have become parents to Amelie, five, Harvey, three, and 15-month-old twins Maya and Evie.

The mother carried all the girls in her right womb, while Harvey grew in her left.

The mother met husband Ben at 17 and the pair married in 2012. Desperate to become parents, the newlyweds started trying for a baby a year after tying the knot

Mrs Cotter, from Melbourne, Australia, said: ‘From quite early, on Ben and I discussed having children and it was clear that he really wanted to be a dad.

‘I knew I had to be open and honest and tell him that might not be a possibility for me.

‘Luckily he wasn’t bothered. We talked it through and agreed that there was more than one way to have a baby if you wanted it badly enough.
