Mother of conjoined twins ready to give birth


A girl preparing to give birth continues to be told among the infants will not survive.

The girls have kidneys and different hearts.

McCullough told KUSA TV ( Olivia isn’t anticipated to survive because of her heart. She is missing valves and just has just one ventricle.

“I am going to really get to find out my girls really briefly following the delivery,” McCullough said. “They should be intubated immediately, but the physicians will hold them up real fast and I Will get a peek.”

Physicians said it could take up to separate the twins.

She’s a 6-year old son named Tristan from an earlier relationship that ended in divorce.

She became pregnant with her girls when she discovered she was taking conjoined twins, also it was not until her second trimester. The relationship together with the daughter’s father finished soon afterwards.

McCullough has lived since early August in the Ronald McDonald House in Aurora. Her stepmother is there, caring for her and keeping her company.

Additionally they gave her keepsakes that honor both infants’ lives.

McCullough told KUSA TV she desires to give her daughters the opportunity at life.

“I only can not lose both,” she said. “There is an opportunity of saving one.”
