After suffering four miscarriages, a British woman born with two wombs and two cervices, is now the mother of two healthy boys.

When Emily Taylor, 31, and her husband, Richard, decided to start a family, but Taylor was held up with spontaneous abortions, and no one could tell me why,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.


Between 2013 and 2015, Taylor suffered three miscarriages, all of which occurred around the time of the six-week mark. After a fourth miscarriage, and she went to a gynecologist, who, in a shocking discovery, An investigation found that Taylor was born with two cervixes and two wombs, a rare congenital anomaly, referred to as uterus didelphys, or simply double uterus (womb).

As the female fetus develops, the uterus starts out as two small tubes. Typically, these tubes work together to create the uterus (womb). However, in some rare cases, the tubes do not merge, and instead develop into two separate structures.

“With a double uterus may have an opening (cervix) into one vagina, or each uterine cavity may have a cervix. In many cases, a thin wall of tissue running along the length of the vagina, dividing it into two separate holes,” the Mayo Clinic explains. While women have a double uterus and can become pregnant and deliver healthy babies, they are at an increased risk of miscarriage or preterm labor, such as is indicated in these patients.

Taylor said she was “gutted” when he heard the news. “I thought that was part of the reason why I am still a miscarriage, I didn’t think I would be able to have children, even though he was told to keep trying. And I thought, ” It’s not going to work.”
