Mother of conjoined twins to give birth in Colorado

AURORA, Colo. (AP) – An expectant mother awaiting the arrival of conjoined twins in Colorado says she wants to see her two girls before they are separated because doctors expect only one of them will survive.

Amber McCullough, of Hastings, Minn., was scheduled to have a C-section Wednesday to deliver twin girls at the Colorado Fetal Care Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado.

Hospital spokeswoman Elizabeth Whitehead says there’s no update yet on the delivery. She says McCullough is grateful for everyone’s support and concern and is asking for privacy.
The twins, Hannah and Olivia, share an abdomen, liver and intestinal tract. The girls have separate hearts and kidneys.

McCullough told KUSA-TV Olivia is not expected to survive because of her heart. She only has a single ventricle and is missing valves.
