    Mom Robin Hamby of Atlanta, who chronicled and shared her pregnancy with rare conjoined twins aacross social media, gave birth Thursday. Although the baby boys were breathing on their own at birth, their condition quickly deteriorated. Robin and her husband Michael were aware in advance that because of the extremely rare way the babies shared a body and organs, they could never have been separated.

    'Asa and Eli arrived breathing on their own and crying, their parents said. But the boys’ health deteriorated Friday, and Robin was taken by ambulance from Northside to Egleston to be with the twins... Born at 37 weeks, Asa and Eli shared a torso, arms and legs.'

    Sadly, the twins' heart was not strong enough to sustain them. The parents were able to hold their babies as they passed away from heart failure, Friday afternoon.

    'Conjoined twins occur once every 200,000 live births, but between 40 and 60 percent arrive stillborn, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Being joined side-by-side made the Hamby twins even rarer, a condition known as dicephalic parapagus.'
