A mother has described her joy after a successful operation to separate her conjoined twins.
Rosie and Ruby Formosa, who are only 12 weeks old, needed an emergency operation to separate them after they were born joined at the abdomen and shared part of the intestine.
The identical girls underwent an operation at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) on July 27 - the day after they were born.
The twin are doing well and have been described as "normal bubbly babies," despite warnings that survival chances were low.
Mother Angela, 32, said:
The girls were operated on by a team of specialists led by paediatric surgeon Professor Agostino Pierro.
Angela Formosa said that she and her taxi driver husband Daniel, 36, were "happy and relieved" to have the girls at home.
The mother-of-three added that she was "incredibly grateful" to the GOSH staff.
What they have done for my two girls is amazing. When I was pregnant they were saying that the survival chances were quite low. For them to have been operated on and doing so well - it is amazing.
