Jaswant said: “My wife fainted after she saw the baby. We are shocked. It is unbelievable. Everyone is shocked to see them. We cannot believe our child has two heads. We were told after ultrasound that we are going to have twins. We were very happy to have two kids but it is one baby with two heads.

“This is my baby and I will raise him as he is. I am yet to hold him in my hands. People are saying many things but he is my baby and I will take him home.

“I do not have money for an operation. As long as he is alive, I will love him and take care of him.”

The conjoined twins share internal organs and are now under round-the-clock observation.

Child specialist at their district hospital in India, Dr Surendra Sonkar said the baby would be moved to an advanced unit for further treatment.

She said: “They are a case of conjoined twins. We are taking care of baby and will take opinion of expert doctors in Bhopal and Delhi, who had earlier done the operation of such kids.”

Baby born with two heads and three hands baffles doctors in India A 21-year-old woman delivered a baby with two heads and three hands, sending doctors of the state-run facility into a tizzy in central India. Babita Ahirwar, a resident of Basauda village in Vidisha district of Madhya Pradesh, delivered the baby around 7:30 am on November 23 through C-section. Babita was married to Jaswant Ahirwar around one and a half years ago. The couple which was eagerly waiting to welcome their first baby was devastated after seeing the infant born with a deformity. "It was a mixed feeling when the nurses handed over the baby to me. Initially, I thought it was a twin, but when the nurses removed the towel, I was shocked to see our firstborn with two heads and three hands. All we wanted was a normal and healthy baby, but the almighty wanted to punish us this way. I don't know why," said new mom Babita told Newslions. Dr Surendra Sonkar of Vidisha Sadar hospital said: "On Saturday morning around 7:30 am, we facilitated the delivery of a baby through C-section. The baby had two heads and three hands. The third hand had two palms attached to it. "There is only one heart visible in the newborn. This is a very rare condition and this is the first time. I have come across such a case in my career," he said. "We had initially kept the baby in the ICU, but we thought it was better to refer them to a better-equipped facility in Bhopal," he added. At present, the baby is undergoing treatment at Bhopal's Hamidi Medical College and Hospital. Video: Youtube Link: https://youtu.be/7wqSEKcRZsA NOTE: Clean file available on request.
