This was just so amazing I had to post it. I've not heard about this condition before. They're so cute and hope they will be healthy and happy.

The baby with two faces: Australian woman gives birth to conjoined twin girls who share a body but have two brains

The couple, who found out via an ultrasound that the twins they were expecting was in fact one child with two symmetrical faces and two brains connected by the one brain stem, said doctors were shocked by the girls' exceptional progress.

'They are breathing perfectly on their own and feeding,' Mr Howie told Woman's Day.

Ms Young gave birth to the girls, named Faith and Hope, via an emergency caesarean at Blacktown Hospital last Thursday.

The girls were 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.

Sorry if i ruffle anyones feathers and rub anyone the wrong way but in nature when a baby bird is born sick or deformed its mother throws it out of the nest so it wont be an unnecessary burden upon the healthy normal birds and when a baby kitten is born sick or deformed its mother devours it so it wont be an unnecessary burden upon the healthy normal kittens ect ect and so must bleeding heart,i refuse to admit anythings wrong with my baby but i'll sure love all the financial benefits and media attention my mutant baby will bring me,humans keep fighting against the natural ways of nature like wtf?!
