Woman Gives Birth To Twins Three Months Apart

When a mother is having twins, it is expected that they'll arrive on the same day. But an incident in Kazakhstan shocked the internet after it was reported that a 29-year-old woman gave birth to her twins almost three months apart. 

People.com, a website that provides news about celebrity and human-interest stories, mentioned in an article that Liliya Konovalova was interviewed by Women’s Health after she welcomed a baby girl whom she named Liya on May 24. But Liya’s twin brother was in no rush in coming out into the world until he was delivered on August 9.

Konovalova described in an interview that her son, Maxim, was a “true Bogatyr”-- a warrior figure originated from Russian folk tales. Reports say that the baby girl, Liya, was born prematurely at 25 weeks and weighed only 2 lbs. Maxim weighed 6 lbs., 6 oz. when he was born 11 weeks later.

The proud mother’s photos circulated around the internet after the Kazakh Health Ministry posted her photo on Facebook. There were photos of her smiling while holding one of her twins. 

Konovalova’s has uterus didelphys, or a double uterus. Research from the NCBI, the US' National Center for Biotechnology Information, explained that uterus didelphys is a unique condition that affects 0.5 to 5% of women worldwide. It is said that this condition results in premature births, stillbirths, and miscarriages. Because of this condition, the babies are developed in a separate uterus. 

Mayo Clinic, an online resource for health articles, stated on their website that this condition usually has no symptoms. It can be discovered only when the woman undergoes a regular pelvic exam or during imaging tests. 

“Thanks to our doctors, we prevailed… what they did is a miracle,” Konovalova said. She is also proud to say that they are now cleared for discharge since her babies weigh around three kilograms.
