Woman gives birth to baby with two heads

Two-Headed Baby Born In India
A woman in India gave birth Wednesday to an incredibly unique pair of conjoined twins.

The woman, who has been identified as 28-year-old Urmila Sharma, gave birth to what appears to be 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.

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.

God bless all God's creatures. The snarky comments below are uncalled for. People should be ashamed.

There was a show on TLC (I believe) about female teenager (s) in the same situation. They appeared to be very happy. They drove a car, would swim, cook, do homework and it worked for them.

".....too late to do anything about it..."? What did they have in mind? It is a little girl, a human being.

On the flip side, mercy would dictate it is more cruel to entertain the prospect of this poor child....or children,....becoming the object of people`s ignorant jokes

They are TWO little girls. NOT one. Read up on conjoined twins. They are not one baby.

Science or bible thumpers. Bad situation, wish them peace. If they survive, they could live a loving good life. ANYWAY YOU "DEFINE IT"

The parents should get in contact with the Hensel Family and they will help them tons that's for sure. I have seen Abigail & Brittany's TLC Show last year and it's really interesting. I've a lot of respect for Abigail & Brittany. Good luck to the family

Why does the article refer to the twins in the singular. They are two people, not one.
