Birth of a Miracle Baby

A teenager who was told she would probably never have children has shocked doctors by giving birth to a healthy boy. Karlie Wilson of Solihull, Warwickshire, was told by doctors that her chances of being a mother were slim. Because, her menopause was induced at age 13, so that she could have a partial hysterectomy to overcome a rare medical condition. Miss Wilson was born with uterus didelphys that means two wombs. Doctors removed half her uterus, an ovary and a fallopian tube in 2001.

But in January, 2007 the 19-year-old amazed doctors by becoming pregnant – eight months after meeting partner Oliver Mather-Price. Even then Miss Wilson was told she would struggle to get past five months of pregnancy. However, Mason James was born by Caesarean section just four days before his September 10 due date, weighing in at 3kg (6lb 9oz).
Miss Wilson, of Solihull, Warwickshire, said:
'I thought I was never going to have a child but I've proved the doctors wrong. My boy really is a miracle.'
'When I told my parents I was pregnant they couldn't believe it. 'When I told Oliver, he couldn't speak for two days because he was so overjoyed.' Link
