Surgery Hope For Conjoined Twins: BORN DIFFERENT

A MOTHER of conjoined twins is facing an agonising wait to find out whether her baby girls can be separated. Delivered by caesarean at the PDC Clinic in Pabna, North Bangladesh, on July 16 of this year, conjoined twins Rabia and Rukia were born joined at the head. Mum Taslima Khatun Uno and husband Mohammed Rafiqul Islam didn’t learn that the twins were conjoined until after the birth. Doctors are monitoring the twins’ health in the coming weeks and assessing if and when surgical separation is possible and what the risks are to the babies’ lives.
