Humans are naturally competent at tasks like moving their heads, walking, and picking things up with their hands, yet some people are unable to do so.
Abby and Brittany Hensel were born conjoined twins who rose to fame after starring on Oprah Winfrey’s show.
Because of other people’s preconceptions, the twins had a rough upbringing, but they learnt to lead their lives the way they wish to be happy.
Brittany and Abby are now 30 years old. We always grumble about the minor details in our lives that should not detract from our overall happiness, especially when some of these details are unimportant.
Most of us find it very easy to go for a stroll whenever we want, to go shopping, and participate in various sports, but there are those who are unable to enjoy these simple pleasures.
Because Abby and Brittany Hensel were conceived with one torso and two faces, their parents knew their girls’ lives would be distinctive and sometimes tough in court.
They were, however, committed to giving the girls whatever they needed to feel like their existence was as ordinary as everyone else’s.
Conjoined twins are extremely uncommon and are identical twins since they are born from the same egg. However, in this case, the egg failed to fully divide into distinct twins during its initial weeks, resulting in the twins remaining united. It’s usually a link between the ch-est and the stomach.
Patty and Mike Hensel were expecting a single child and had no sign that anything was wrong with the pregnancy. The physicians stated that during the ultrasonography, their heads must have been aligned, thus it always seemed to be a single child.
All those present at the birth, according to Dr. Joy Westerdahl, were unable to make a noise for one minute after viewing the twins. At the age of four months, the Hensel twins had an operation to remove the prosthetic arm from between their heads. After that, their family attempted to provide them with normal life as possible.
