A woman in India who was too poor to have an ultrasound while she was pregnant gave birth to a baby girl with two heads. Unfortunately, doctors believe the little girl has a very slim chance at survival. Such a sad story.

Urmila Sharma was completely unaware that she would be giving birth to a baby that had two heads, two spines, and only one body.

Indian Baby Born With 2 Heads

On the morning of Wednesday, March 12, 32-year-old Urmila Sharma went into labor. Unfortunately, Urmila and her husband, Subhash, were too poor to have regular ultrasounds and only found out two weeks beforehand that their baby girl was suffering from serious complications. According to their doctor, Dr Shikha Malik at Cygnus JK Hindu Hospital, it was “too late” to do anything about the pregnancy.

“We only came to know she was carrying conjoined twins after an ultrasound two weeks ago but it was too late to do anything by then,” the doctor explained after the baby girl was born.

The baby, who was born by C-section and weighed 7lbs 7oz, was delivered with two heads, two necks, two spines, but only one tiny body. The baby girl is technically considered to be conjoined twins, and they suffer from dicephalic parapagus — a very rare form of conjoinment.

Parents Have Yet To Name Baby Girl

Sadly, because the doctors have predicted that the conjoined twins have a very little chance of survival, Urmila and Subhash have yet to name them.

“The parents are very distressed and we are helping the family the best we can,” Dr. Malik explained while discussing the aftermath of the baby girl’s birth.

In fact, the doctor has explained that if the little girl(s) survive and their chances for a long life increase, there is a possibility for them to have surgery. The doctor did not confirm whether or not the surgery would be separating the babies or just easing their conjoinment.

He said: “Now the baby is born we will do our best to save her and we hope to operate once her condition is more stable.”

“The doctor did not confirm whether or not the surgery would be separating the babies or just easing their conjoinment”. You mean separate them as two girls with each a half chest and only half of the organs, one arm, one leg etc. I am sorry for the parents and these poor babies but I find tjat hard to believe to be posdible.
