Meet Elizabeth Amoaa; The Lady With Two Wombs, Two Reproductive Organs
She describes her condition as a blessing from God.
A Ghanaian health advocate, Elizabeth Amoaa, has revealed how she found out that, she has two wombs, two cervices and two vaginas.
According to her, she only got to know about her rare condition, five years after the birth of her daughter.
Elizabeth Amoaa said she was diagnosed with uterus didelphys or ”double uterus,” in 2015, which is a condition that occurs during fetal development, when the two tubes that normally form one uterus, become two separate structures instead, according to the Mayo Clinic.
While speaking in an interview on GBC, the woman disclosed that during her pregnancy, doctors thought she had an ectopic pregnancy because they were scanning the “wrong womb”.
At some point, doctors suggested that she terminate the pregnancy but Elizabeth Amoaa kicked against it and went on to give birth to her daughter, Rashley.
”My daughter was born prematurely. There is a lot that has happened in the 20-30 years of my life … Initially, I thought it was a curse but right now sitting here, I realise it’s a blessing rather than a curse,” she disclosed.
