A woman from Jashore gave birth to twins 26 days after the birth of her first child.

The mother and the three babies are doing well.

A doctor said the rare incident happened because she has two uteruses.

The woman, Arifa Sultana Iti, is the wife of Sumon Biswas from Shyamlagachhi village in Sharsha.

She gave birth to their first baby, a boy, at Khulna Medical College Hospital on Feb 25, Sumon said, reports bdnews24.com.

The baby is fine now after doctors took his care following the premature birth, he said.

Iti was taken to the Ad-Dwin Hospital in Jashore on March 22 when she fell ill 26 days after the birth of the boy, the husband said.

She gave birth to a boy and a girl in a caesarean section there, he said.  

Sheila Poddar, the chief of the hospital’s gynaecology department, said she discovered in an ultrasonography test that Iti has two uteruses.

“The first baby was born from one womb. The two babies born here are from the other womb,” she said.

“It’s a rare incident. I have seen such a case for the first time. I hadn’t even heard about such incident before,” the doctor said.
