Miss Hunter was still in discomfort for a week and it was discovered she had suffered an ectopic pregnancy, where the foetus does not implant in the womb.
The condition carries the risk of infertility, and in extreme cases can lead to the death of the mother.

Miss Hunter, herself a non-identical twin, was told the baby was a surviving twin from the pregnancy.
