People have begun to visit a small rural village in Northern India to worship a baby born just two days ago with two faces.
The doctor who delivered her said she and her mother are healthy and doing well.
The baby girl’s parents hope the government will help them give the little girl further treatment.
This baby is more than likely still attached to her parasitic twin. Something happens inutero, at an early stage of conception, preventing the egg from splitting properly. When this happens, the baby is sometimes left with extra appendages, organs or conjoined to their sibling.
The amazing part of this story is that the village is embracing this baby’s uniqueness.
