A mother who gave birth to Siamese twins and then left the hospital, was called to return her babies to the hospital as they “desperately needed surgery”. A woman in India, as a miracle, gave birth to the babies who were joined to the belly but left within a few hours.
Doctors who could not tell the children’s sexes said they were vulnerable to health complications because they were sharing the umbilical cord. The twins were born on 2 September, and each baby had all his limbs and vital organs.
“The sex of these babies would only be revealed during surgery,” said Dr. Rahul Aggarwal, a pediatric surgeon at Bhawani Prasad Hospital in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, who took out the twins. They all had four ends, one heart, but the fact that they were joining the abdomen and sharing the same umbilical cord made blood circulation a challenge.
“If they had an umbilical cord, they would be much stronger babies. Now, they desperately need surgery so they can continue and have an opportunity. ” Dr. Aggarwal said the 32-year-old woman from a nearby village was hospitalized and the ultrasound quickly revealed she was expecting twins.
They showed that the twins were connected to the belly, having a total length of 75 cm from one baby’s head to the other. We prepared her for surgery, but within one hour she gave birth naturally, which was a miracle. The normal birth of Siamese twins, especially when connected to the abdomen, is quite difficult. It’s very rare. The brave woman gave birth to the twins and fortunately everything went well. ”
The mother was shocked when she saw her babies, but she was tied to them immediately. “It was amazing that we saw the two babies together,” Dr. Aggarwal. “They both reacted and started crying together.” He said she advised the mother to seek further medical assistance and referred her to the Institute of Medical Sciences of India (AIIMS) in New Delhi, but she disappeared.
He said: “The mother and the twins were good enough to be able to go home. However, I have set up a better hospital with advanced medical facilities to be able to seek further treatment.
