Formed an extra brain while in his mother’s womb, this “two-headed” baby finally returned home with only one.
After eight years of marriage, this woman surprised her husband on their anniversary that they were finally having a baby.
As if being pregnant with one baby wasn't exciting enough, she was growing two little lives at the same time in her womb!
Eager to find out the gender of her twins, she anticipated her 20th-week ultrasound:
"After finding out that Diane was having a boy, we struggled to identify the gender of the other twin. Upon conducting further scans, we discovered that we misdiagnosed her for being pregnant with twins."
“Unfortunately, Diane’s baby has a birth defect known as Encephalocele, which caused a part of his brain tissue to grow outside through the opening of his tiny skull.”
“This made it seem like he had an extra head and I’ve never seen a case like this before. We had no choice but to recommend a termination to protect Diane’s wellbeing and her ability to carry a child again in the future.”
“Also, it is unlikely that her baby would survive the pregnancy. Even if he did, there was a high chance of him developing infections and becoming severely disabled.”
