Mom of Baby Born With 2 Heads Given Hope By Doctors (VIDEO)

OMG 84

baby with two headsA baby boy with two heads has been born in India, which is exactly as unbelievable as it sounds. The child has a condition known as conjoined dicephalic parapagus twins, which is typically seen with baby girls more than boys. And sadly, many times these types of twins do not make it.

The baby has one rib cage and one shoulder girdle, but two separate nervous systems, back bones, and heads. Even though he is in serious condition, his doctors at J.K. Lone Hospital in Jaipur City are hoping they'll be able to save him.

Take a look at this video to see more of the child.

The poor little thing. Doesn't this just break your heart? As a mother, I can't even imagine how awful it must be to see your baby lying there helpless and wondering whether or not he is going to survive -- especially when the circumstances are so rare and unimaginable. Thankfully the doctors aren't giving up and are willing to fight for him, and we can only hope they come through and give him a chance.

Even though this isn't my baby -- I couldn't help but want to reach through the computer screen and pick up the newborn and cuddle him after seeing the video footage. If this were my child, I'd absolutely want doctors to do everything in their power to save him, even if I knew that he would never really live a normal life. I'll never forget the instant unconditional love I felt the first time I saw my son and held him in my arms -- and I know there's nothing on this earth that could've changed that for me.

My heart goes out to the parents of this little boy, and I will be keeping them in my prayers for sure. The birth of a baby should be the most joyous time in a person's life, and it's just so sad to think about anyone having to come to terms with their child being anything less than healthy and thriving.

What words of encouragement would you offer to this baby's family?

That's two babies sharing a body, not a baby with two heads. They're like the Hensel twins. Hope they make it!

They are twins, therefor "babies", not a baby born with two heads. My heart goes out to the mother of the BOYS.

2 babies one body like Kara said.

"They" not "him".  They are twins who didn't fully separate at the beginning stages of development in the womb.

Everyone beat me to it. Prayers for these little guys

mande... manderspanders

Call this what you like: twins, or a baby with 2 heads. The fact of the matter is that one will necessarily die to save the life of the other.

kelti... kelticmom

Manderspanders, obviously you nor the author have ever heard of Abigail and Brittany Hensel. They are also conjoined dicephalic parapagus twins. (Two heads one body.) They are also 23 years old, have Bachelors Degrees, a driver's license, and had a show on TLC.

numba... numba_1_stunna

This author should be ashamed of the crappy writing of this article. The diagnosis even says TWINS in it, she mentions that "sadly these types of TWINS often do not make it" and yet keeps referring to them as HE and as a boy with 2 heads. REALLY? She needs to be fired.

corus... coruscations

I totally agree with numba_1_stunna. This 'writer' should be fired. I really can't believe what I'm reading. A baby with two heads, really? Has she never heard of conjoined twins before?
