Teen Set To Have Conjoined Twins

Post  Guest on Sun 23 Nov - 9:48

An 18-year-old girl is set to become Britain's youngest ever mother to conjoined twins.

Laura Williams is due to give birth by Caesarian section this week.

Her daughters are joined from the breastbone to the top of the navel and have separate hearts.

Despite the risks, the teenager and husband Aled, 28, told Sky News they had decided not to abort their daughters Faith and Hope.

Laura said: "The doctor sat us down and told us that we were having conjoined twins and that I should get rid of them and if I didn't get rid of them they'd probably end up dying on me or I'd end up losing them before 16 weeks.

"They also did say that if we didn't get rid of them there could be a possibility of never having kids again.

"We decided against abortion because our religion is dead against that sort of thing anyway."

Aled added: "At the end of the day we're strong enough to fight it all the way to the end and that's what we're doing."

Laura, from Shrewsbury, is being cared for at Birmingham Women's Hospital but will be transferred to another in London for the procedure, the Mail On Sunday reports.

No matter what Doctors say, they are not Gods and don't know how everything is going to pan out, so they should never have said that to this young mother.

I see that one of the little babies has died.
How sad for all the family.
I believe it was Hope who died.
I do pray the other baby does survive.
