When Faye Wilkins was a teenager, she was diagnosed with an incredibly rare condition called uterus didelphys (UD).
Amazingly, it would eventually allow the 31-year-old to give birth to her children via two separate wombs.
“At the age of 14 I couldn’t believe it when doctors told me I was born with two vaginas, two cervixes and two wombs,” she said.
“I was in complete shock as I’d never noticed the condition before as the differences were only internal.”
Remarkably, it wasn’t until Wilkins started experiencing severe pain around the time of her period that she consulted doctors who made the rare discovery.

“As the pain got worse, my mum took me to the doctors thinking I had an ovarian cyst because a lump had formed, but no one would scan me,” she said.
Only eight months later, her uterus had ruptured.
