A 20-year-old Bangladeshi woman welcomed a
set of twins just 26 days after giving birth to a
baby boy.
Arifa Sultana gave birth to a baby boy in
February according to Dr Sheila Poddar, a
gynaecologist at Ad-Din hospital in Dhaka. But
on March 22 she was rushed to hospital after
falling ill before shocking everyone by giving
birth to a baby boy and girl through caesarean
section.
Poddar told local media that the woman came
to the hospital complaining of lower abdominal
pain. Doctors performed an ultrasound and
realised Sultana was pregnant with twins. This
was shocking considering she just delivered a
baby only days earlier.
Sultana had two uteruses, a condition called
uterus didelphys.
A uterus didelphys is a rare congenital
abnormality, and the occurrence of twin
gestation has an overall incidence rate of 1 in a
million, according to the National Institutes of
Health.
Her first baby was conceived and grown in a
different womb to that holding the twins, the NZ
Herald reports.
Sultana was unaware of her condition and
double-simultaneous pregnancy as she did not
receive an ultrasound for the birth of her baby
boy.
“It’s a rare incident. I have seen such a case for
the first time. I had not even heard about such
an incident before,” Poddar said.
It is understood the mother and babies are
healthy and doing well, according to The NZ
Herald.
