A GoFundMe account has been set-up for Brittany and her baby boys. Her unique birth has been well documented by Georgia Regents Medical Center because this was the center’s first conjoined birth.
Conjoined twins Chandler Kaiden and Chance Aiden Crafton were born by cesarean section Monday at Georgia Regents Medical Center and are in critical condition in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital of Georgia, the health system reported.
Their mother, Brittany, is recovering at the medical center and was in good condition.
The boys are joined at the chest and share a heart and liver. The move to the NICU had been anticipated by the medical center’s doctors, a team of which met weekly to monitor and discuss the impending birth and health issues for both the twins and their mother.
Dr. Paul Browne, maternal and fetal medicine specialist at GRMC, said weeks before the delivery that the boys’ heart appeared to be in good shape but that even if all went well he anticipated the stay in the NICU would be at least a week to 10 days before the twins could go home.
