A New York woman born with two uteruses has delivered two babies at Buffalo's Women and Children's Hospital.

Doctors say Alison Camp's condition, Uterine Didelphys is rare.

They say each of her uteruses has one fallopian tube and one ovary, but she also has two cervices.

On October 8, 2011, Camp delivered two boys, Griffin and Carter, 14 weeks prematurely, after doctors say each baby developed in a different uterus.

The babies each weighed approximately 1.5 lbs at birth.

The Camps already have two other children, ages 5 and 2.

Officials at Women and Children's Hospital say approximately 75 such cases such as Camp's have been documented worldwide.
