Woow!!! See Two Ladies Who Share A Body!

Abigail and Brittany Hensel are conjoined twins from Minnesota. Being conjoined, they have had many struggles throughout their lives.Soon after they were born, doctors gave their parents the bad news, the girls would not survive long.

The girls are now 25 years old and are featured in a show, titled: Abby and Brittany, which will show viewers how their every days lives are.



These girls are one of the rarest set of dicephalus twins in the world!

It is very rare to be born conjoined (1 in 40,000) and it is even more rare to survive after birth (1% of the 1 in 40,000)! The fact that Abby and Brittany are alive and well is a miracle.

Abby and Brittany came to be when a fertilized egg failed to separate inside the womb.They have two hearts, two spines joined at the pelvis, four lungs, two esophagi, three kidneys, one ribcage, one liver, a partially shared nervous system and a shared circulatory system.

From their waist down, all organs are shared including the reproductive system, intestines and bladder. Abby, the right twin can’t feel anything on the left side of body while Brittany, the left twin can’t feel anything on her right side.
