A woman has given birth to miracle conjoined twins with two brains in the same skull.
Renee Young had been advised to terminate the pregnancy by doctors in Australia.
But she and partner Simon Howie, from Sydney, have now welcomed the astonishing little girls – six weeks early.
And they’ve been given appropriate names – Faith and Hope.
The girls are the result of a rare condition known as disrosopus, where a baby is born with two faces.
Fewer than 40 human such cases are known to have been born. Even fewer survived beyond birth.
“They are breathing perfectly on their own and feeding,” Mr Howie said.
“They even had their first bath last night.
“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.
“Even though there is only one body, we call them our twins
“To us, they are our girls and we love them.”
