‘Female Baby Having Two Heads’ Born In India

Conjoined twins were born at a hospital

in northern India on Wednesday


"Yes this report is perfectly true that we

have delivered a female baby having two

heads," Dr. Ashish Sehgal, the CEO of

Cygnus JK Hindu Hospital, told

ABCNews.com in an email. "She is

presently alive and healthy."

The New York Daily News reports that

the babies' mom, Urmila Sharma,

couldn't afford an ultrasound and didn't

know she was delivering conjoined twins.

"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," Dr Shikha Malik, who

delivered the baby, said.

According to the Daily Mail, the twins

have "two heads, two necks and two

spines," but just one body and their

chances for survival are slim.

Sehgal told the Daily News that a

"meticulous and challenging" surgery

could be the key to saving the twins' life,

but the procedure can't take place until

they are in stable condition.
