Abigail and Brittany Hensel are a pair of extremely famous conjoined twins. Once predicted to be difficult to survive but both sisters have lived healthy for the past 29 years, so how did they do?
For 29 years, conjoined twins Abigail and Brittany Hensel have lived a life beyond the imagination of doctors and experts despite all physical limitations, or the doubts that both will be difficult. to live healthy and long term. These twin sisters are proof that nothing can stop you from overcoming any difficulties and make your dream come true if you really want it.
The documentary Joined for life and the private program of the Abby & Brittany sisters have somewhat portrayed the lives of these two conjoined twins.
Abigail and Brittany are world-famous conjoined twins and have their own show. Abigail and Brittany were born on March 7, 1990 in Minnesota. The birth of twins is a real surprise for both the doctor and their parents. Because at first they all thought it was a girl, even the ultrasound scan did not see any images of the twins or any abnormalities during fetal development.
It is only during labor that the mother realizes that something is wrong. Doctors are extremely panicked and it may even take a long time for a mother to see her children. Fortunately, the parents of the twins did not hate or fear, but they both loved the two children, and the worried faces of the doctors diminished.
However, because the body is so special, the survival of both sisters is considered very fragile right from birth. According to statistics, of the 30 million conjoined twins, only one body survived. The other person's internal organs will gradually weaken in the first 24 hours after birth. Although the doctors have predicted poor results for the couple, it is surprising that both have overcome all and developed as a normal healthy child.
Doctors did not detect the mother was pregnant with twins but only found it to be a baby girl on ultrasound.
Doctors do not even discuss whether to separate the two girls because this solution will kill one of the two children or weaken both of them. Moreover, the twins themselves have proved that they do not need any separate surgery because they can live with the conjoined body, one supporting the other.
And their parents did everything in their power to make the two sisters feel like normal children. The family has found a suitable school for their children so that they do not feel isolated or discriminated against. The family also never allows anyone to carry out any experiment on the twins, even if it can help predict their health status and future development.
How does the body of conjoined twins work?
According to the surgery results of the doctors, the bodies of the Abigail and Brittany sisters include: 2 heads, 2 legs, 2 hands, 2 spine, 3 lungs, 2 hearts, 1 liver, 2 stomachs, 3 kidneys, general circulatory system and genitals. However, doctors do not understand how the couple's bodies can function properly despite such anomalies.
Each person can only control the side of his body and they can not feel the sister's body. For example, Abby felt nothing when someone shook Brittany's hand and vice versa. Ever since they were young, the two sisters have learned to synchronize movements and coordinate actions together. They all work so perfectly that they easily learn to play the piano, swim, bike and play sports.
Scientists believe that girls share nerve connections that no other body has. This is why girls can read each other's thoughts, write e-mail without consulting each other's sisters and even finish each other's sentences. Also, at a visual level, the needs of the body are synchronized: when Abby wants to drink, Brittany is thirsty, and when one of them wants to fix their hair or make up, one will help the other.
Two sisters can coordinate activities together despite having two separate brains so they can drive, swim, play the piano.
Is there any difference between the two sisters?
Although the body is connected, it does not mean that the physical development of the two will be the same. At the age of 12, Abby and Brittany encountered this: Abby began to grow very fast and her spine began to stretch which could lead to breaking their common breasts. Doctors had to slow down the growth and save both lives but Abby still increased 10cm height. Therefore, Brittany must walk with his toes.
From an early age, both often see surgeons, neurologists, pediatricians. And despite being tested constantly, it's inevitable that one of two diseases like Abby had pneumonia and Brittany spent weeks in bed with her sister.
Despite the same body, Abby and Brittany have different personalities and qualities.
Despite the same body, Abby and Brittany have different personalities and qualities. Abby is an introvert, she likes to spend the night at home and is afraid of heights. As for Brittany, she also likes the quiet, but she also likes to spend time with friends. In addition, the food tastes are also different: Abby hates milk, but Brittany can easily drink it but she hates meat or fish.
In their childhood, the girls also had conflicting moments but now they were able to find a compromise quickly. For example, Abby likes purple and Brittany likes yellow, this is why their room has purple walls with yellow shelves.
When choosing clothes, they also have difficulty because it is hard to find clothes that both comfortable and both like. In addition, the clothes they choose vary according to each person's preferences and size.
At school, the twins also have to take a separate test and there are always people to avoid cheating. The sisters also have different interests in the subject, Abby is good in natural sciences, and Brittany has a strong interest in humanities.
The common point of twins is that they do not like being photographed or staring. They feel normal with answering questions from strangers or talking to someone, but people rarely understand them, so sisters often avoid communicating with strangers.
What is their life like now?
College is another challenge for the Hensel sisters. But they have not only done well but also demonstrated to the world that they can lead a normal active life even if they share the same body.
Girls always love children and often do extra childcare. It is therefore not surprising that they choose to teach as a dream job in the future.
In addition, the couple expressed their desire to have a family in the future. Doctors make sure that two sisters can have children but it is a difficult question because they share the same body for two.

Currently both are elementary school teachers.
Currently, the two sisters work in an elementary school, teaching different subjects: Abby teaches math and physics, Brittany teaches literature and history. But they only get the same salary.
The couple's life has always been a media focus, but a few years ago, they decided to stop working with journalists and even stop updating their social media pages. Perhaps they made this decision after it was rumored that Brittany was engaged.
How many conjoined twins are there?
Despite the fact that conjoined twins are extremely rare, the ratio is about 1 / 200,000, but the Hensel sisters are not the only example of conjoined twins having a happy life.
Shivanath and Shivram Sahu were born in a small Indian village in 2002. The brothers have 4 arms and 2 legs, but their bodies are connected in the abdomen. In 2014, the twins turned down an offer from doctors to separate them.
Another conjoined twins Lori and George Schappell were abandoned by their parents shortly after they were born. But despite that, George became a famous country music singer, Lori even got engaged.
Ronnie and Donnie Galyon are the oldest conjoined twins in the world (now 68 years old). Unfortunately, the two brothers were not accepted into any school. So they have to use the strange body to make a living
