I hope they get along well in life. It’s going to be tough if they can make it at all.
Conjoined twins born at a hospital in India appear to share everything below their two, separate heads, hospital officials told ABCNews.com.
“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 mother thought she was only carrying one baby because she was too poor to afford an ultrasound, according to Asia Cover Press.
This is a rare type of conjoined twins, called thoracophagus, where two bodies are fused from the upper thorax to lower belly.The family is poor. How will they afford to take care of this special child. I hope that the coverage of the birth allows the family to receive donations of support. It is not clear if they will survive. The heart may be overstressed.
