One 34-year-old woman only found out she was pregnant when she went to hospital complaining of stomach pains.
The other woman, a mother superior, was working with “fallen women and their children” when she discovered her own pregnancy.
“It appears that both women were back in their home nations and obviously had some form of sexual encounter. An investigation has been launched. They both breached strict rules of chastity but the welfare of their children is uppermost,” The Sun reported.
