PHOTOS: Woman Gives Birth To Baby With 1 Head, 2 Faces, 2 Brains & 1 Body

A young Australian mother miraculously gave birth on Thursday, May 8 to conjoined twins with two faces, two brains inside one skull and share one body.
Doctors had told Renee Young to terminate the pregnancy when they found out via an ultrasound that the twins they were expecting was one child with two symmetrical faces and two brains connected by the one brain stem but she and her partner, Simon Howie refused.
Renee and her partner welcomed their daughters named Faith and Hope, via an emergency caesarean at Blacktown Hospital last Thursday, six weeks before they were due.
Born with a rare condition called diprosopus, which means they share the same body and vital organs but have their own faces and brains which are connected by only one brain stem, the girls have continued to surprise doctors with their exceptional progress as they are breathing perfectly on their own and feeding too.
Though they were born with one body, their parents have decided to call them twins.
“We call them our twins. To us, they are our girls and we love them. We have no idea how long they will be in hospital. We just want to bring them home, happy and healthy to make our family a little bit bigger and a bit more chaotic,” Mr Howie said.
Doctors are so unsure about what to expect from the twin’s condition due to the incredibly complex nature of their condition and have forewarned the parents of medical problems likely to come their way, but the parents are still keeping hope alive and are just happy their girls are alive and well. They have also braced themselves for a difficult path ahead and refuse to say goodbye prematurely.
“I think they’re beautiful and Simon thinks they’re beautiful so really that’s all that matters.
“I would say, if I only get two days with the baby, I only get two days with the baby – at least I have some time with it,” Renee said.
