Indian woman gives birth to baby with two heads

Following the report about an unusual announcement in 9News that a woman in Tregear New South Wales is expected to give birth to a baby with two faces and one skull, a woman in India gave birth on March 12 to an incredibly unique pair of conjoined twins.

The woman, who has been identified as 28-year-old Urmila Sharma, gave birth to a baby girl with two heads.

She also has two necks and two spines and share one body, which makes it impossible for doctors to separate the twins. Doctors are concerned she may not survive more than a few days. There is hope however that the twins could survive and adapt to their condition. Thanks to the inspiration of Abigail and Brittany Hensel – twins with dicephalic parapagus in the US that have lived into their twenties.

Born via C-section at Cygnus JK Hindu hospital, doctors say the Indian twins cannot be separated because they share so many key body parts.

New York Daily News reports Sharma and her husband couldn’t afford to have an ultrasound earlier in the pregnancy to check for complications so they had no idea she was carrying the twins.

A doctor told the Daily Mail they didn’t find out until two weeks before giving birth and by then it was too late to do anything.

The baby is currently being treated in intensive care. (Huffington Post)
