Community Support Offered to Mom and Conjoined Twins
A mother just recently made headlines when she gave a rare birth to conjoined twins. Soon the support and love started flowing in for the mother in her testing on the social media. Since the Georgia Regents Medical Centre confirmed that the conjoined twins died soon after birth, the support grew in droves. People living in South Carolina and Georgia are overwhelmed by the sad news and are offering prayers and care for the grieved who just lost her two babies. A friend of Brittany Crafton, the mother, told WSAV " "It was shocking news and instantly my heart just went out to Brittany." Another resident of North Augusta, Avery Broadwater, said "It was shocking. It's hard to lose family."
A 26-year-old mother from Augusta, Brittany Crafton gave birth to conjoined twins by C-section that she called Chance and Chandler. Soon after birth, the infants were reportedly in a critical condition until Georgia Regents Medical Center announced in a press release informing the media about the babies' condition. The new born shared a heart and liver and died on Wednesday after battling their tough medical complications. Bernice Crafton, Brittany's mother said, "We just thank God for all of this because we know all of this is His purpose and His will". While the Crafton family is grateful for all the support and love that is being showered in their tough times, they are requesting the public to give them some privacy to grieve the loss. However, the community's support is unshakeable as they take it to Facebook and other social media sites with hashtags, #2Smiles1Heart, as reported by WSAV.
Dr. Paul Browne of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Georgia Regents University and Health System said in a press release, "What makes this case special is that the heart the twins share is quite normal and has been functioning very well for them. So, we believe it will continue to function well after the delivery," reports Fox 5 Atlanta.
