Haitian Woman gives birth to Siamese Twins (Connected Babies)

A Haitian woman in Grande Anse Haiti gave birth to a pair of conjoined twins, also known as Siamese twins, for a total of 16 children.

Roselaine Clermont already had 14 children before giving birth to two new babies, conjoined twins.

According to Radio Caraibes, "les nouveaux-nés sont reliés par les fesses." In English that means the two babies are connected by their buttocks

I did some research, I believe they are called "rachipagus conjoined twins"

The babies are in good healthy conditions.


It is said that "surgery to separate conjoined twins may range from relatively simple to extremely complex, depending on the point of attachment and the internal parts that are shared. Most cases of separation are extremely risky and life-threatening." (wikipedia)

Does Haiti have the medical capabilities to deal with this type of surgical procedures?

With the economics situation in Haiti, it is mind boggling to understand why a woman allows herself to conceive sixteen babies; one wonders whether the womenfolks in Haiti are educated in family planning.

In other Caribbean Island, the governments make sure they put family educator in the field to educate and prevent such trajedy.

I do not think it wiill be difficult to separate those conjoined twins; since they are only attached by the buttock and, do not share internal organs..
