A 35 year old woman, Leona Doherty who was diagnose with uterus didelphys after she and her husband Gary tried to give birth since 2000.

 When her physicians examined her to get the root of her fertility problems, they discovered that she had a rare medical condition also known as double uterus. 

Unfortunately, this defect cut Leona's chances of having a child in half because each of her wombs has only one fallopian tube and one ovary.

"I never had any idea. It was devastating. All I could think was would I ever have a family?" she told the Daily Mail.  

During the next few years the couple tried IVF but after having four miscarriages, the heartache started to weigh heavily on Leona's husband. "My mother had passed away just before we lost the fourth baby and I fell into a depression," he said. So the couple considered adoption.

"We went through the [adoption] process, which was long and hard, and finally in May 2013 a seven-year-old boy came to live with us," she explains. 

Several months after adopting, Leona suffered from a stroke that nearly took her life. 

As she recovered, the couple stopped focusing on conceiving their own child, but Leona admits that the thought was always on her mind. 

Six months later, Leona became pregnant. 

"I was so nervous throughout the whole pregnancy and had to inject an anti-clotting medicine every day," she said.

According to the Daily Mail, on December 9, she says all of her worrying no longer seemed to matter when she gave birth to Hugh, her healthy baby boy.
