On Monday, scenes in the maternity unit at an Indonesian hospital, in the town of Gresik, turned a few heads.

A baby girl was born weighing in at 7.2 kg. But the baby was a little different to others in the hospital. Diagnosed with Parapagus, The baby girl is a rare form of twin; 2 heads on 2 necks share one body and one set of organs. So far doing well and beating all odds of survival, the baby has been diagnosed with respiratory failure within one minute of birth.

Sadly most babies with this condition are either lost during pregnancy, or die shortly after birth. The video of the baby girl shows a very healthy little lady, even if she does need lots of medical care. We wish her all the best, with lots of cuddles and congratulations to the parents!

 

Bette and Dot Tattler  from American Horror Story: Freakshow have to be my all time favourite 2 headed lady. But of course they are fictional characters, unlike the baby girl born in Indonesia earlier this week.
