An 18 year old has given birth to a pair of Siamese twins at Lira Regional Referral Hospital. Unfortunately the babies were already dead at the time of delivery.
 
They were born on Wednesday night to Stella Adero, a resident of Anyapo village Apanylongo Parish, Amac Sub-county in Lira district.
 
According to the girl’s boyfriend, Geoffrey Ojuka also aged 18 years, Adero was rushed to the hospital after she started experiencing labour pains. He said the pregnancy was seven months old.
 
Ojuka said that it was their first pregnancy but the expectant mother had not suffered any health complications before.
 
According to one of the nurses who spoke on condition of anonymity since she was not the official spokesperson for the hospital, the babies were already dead before being extracted. The mother though was in stable condition.
 
The unidentical twins had separate heads but were joined from the abdomen and shared two legs and two hands.
 
Many people flocked the maternity ward to have a glance of the Siamese twins.
