The deputy director of the regional perinatal center, Eset Yeralin, said about the Liliya case: “We heard about this condition almost immediately, during the first birth.

& # 39; Our specialists immediately took care of the second birth.

& # 39; All the while the mother was at our center, taking care of a girl and waiting for the second birth. & # 39;

Liliya, who said her second pregnancy & # 39; difficult & # 39; is now ready to take her twins home.

At the end of December 2018, a British mother wrote medical history when her twins were born 12 days apart, setting the record as the longest time apart for twins to be born in England.

Vicky Green, 32, from Manchester, first gave birth to son Presley, who weighed just 1 pound 8oz when she was 26 weeks pregnant.

But then her birth stopped, leaving his twin sister Paisley in her womb. She finally gave birth 12 days later with a Caesarean section by Paisley, which weighed 2 pounds.

WHAT IS UTERUS DIDELPHYS?

Uterus didelphys, also known as a double uterus, is a condition where a woman with two uterus is born to separate cervixes and sometimes two vagina's, although this is not always the case.

It is because with a female fetus the uterus starts as two small tubes.

As the fetus develops, the tubes are normally joined together to create a larger, hollow organ – the womb.

Sometimes the tubes are not fully connected and each tube develops in a separate hollow organ, so that the woman is born with two wombs.

As the female fetus develops, two tubes normally converge to create a larger, hollow organ - the womb (top photo). But for a minority of women, the tubes do not come together - allowing two hollow organs to form instead. This means that the woman is born with two wombs (bottom photo)

It often only becomes noticeable after puberty and is diagnosed with a physical examination or an ultrasound.

In terms of physical anatomy, the two wombs are often slightly smaller than average to fit, although they can be as large as a & # 39; normal & # 39; uterus.

It also makes it possible to be pregnant twice at the same time – with a baby in each womb.

Some women are also born with two vagina's, although they can have sex and menstruate in the same way as people with only one.

& # 39; They may know they have two and can find them, or they may not realize it, & # 39; Dr. told Leila Hanna, an advisory gynecologist and obstetrician at BMI The Sloane Hospital, at MailOnline.

& # 39; It can be painful because two are crushed in the same area, so sometimes we do surgery to join them together, but it is not necessary.

& # 39; They may also have abnormalities of their kidneys and the tube that draw urine from the bladder. & # 39;

Women often have a slightly higher risk of late miscarriage, premature birth and bleeding during pregnancy.

Caesarean sections are often recommended to reduce the risk of complications.

There is no treatment or cure for the condition.
