Meet four-month-old conjoined twins, Nadira Alifa Putri and Nadiba Aisyah Putri, they are joined at the skull with separate brains.

Parents Siti Nuryaningsih and Juarnes Prana Dinata, both 30, welcomed triplets at the Tanjungpinang Regional General Hospital in Indonesia via a caesarean section, reports The Sun.

Dinata said: “The doctors were shocked at birth when they realised it was a triplet and a conjoined twin as well.

“I am glad that all the babies are healthy but I am really looking forward to their separation of the conjoined babies.

“It is really difficult for me and my wife to see them like that.”

The mum-of-three has said attempting surgery will be in their best interest and “a step that needs to be taken”.

Nuryaningsih added: “When one sleeps the other one wants to play so their sense of doing things is really messed up.”

Juarnes said: “The results were not satisfactory because the doctors in the Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital will not be able to perform a separation surgery until they reach the minimal weight of 10 kilograms.

“We are hoping that the babies will gain weight in the next 6-8 months.”

  • many good wishes for a safe outcome for these babies


  • I hope and pray for a good outcome for this family.


  • that’s so heartbreaking. pray for a happy ending


  • God bless them & I hope the operation is successful.


  • Oh goodness…..how scary and what a worry. I imagine it would be very scary to send them off for the surgery. You would know that you have to try but in trying you risk their loss. I admire their parents.


  • I hope the surgery is a majar success. It would be difficult to manage them joined like that


  • Wishing them all the best for a successful separation


  • I hope they have a successful surgery. Thoughts are with the family.


  • I hope the surgery goes well and these beautiful babies have a wonderful future.


  • i really hope the separation goes well.


  • I hope that is a combined weight of 10 kg. Initially blood loss will probably be a major issue. If htey are keeping each other awake and neither of them are getting enough sleep that may slow their weight and growth.


  • Wow – how trying for this family – na having to wait so long for such traumatic surgery that may or may not succeed. Wishing them all the best with the operation and having three happy and healthy triplets.


  • How extraordinarily harrowing. Best wishes to them all.


  • Gosh, that definitely would have been a shock!! Praying for a good result for their separation.


  • I wish these little ones all the best. I hope it all works out
