According to Anita – “I thought my baby boy would be like others but he is not fine. I would have been very happy if he was a normal baby but this is tragic. I’m finding this very difficult.”

Anita, who was looking forward to a son after having two girls with her husband Satish, was initially admitted to New Maa Saroj Nursing Home, in Kanpur, but due to the non-availability of a senior doctor she was referred to Star Hospital nearby where she delivered.

Rajeev Tiwari, the manager of New Maa Saroj Nursing Home, said: “A baby boy with two heads was born on Saturday and was initially in a healthy state. But as hours passed his condition worsened as he could not feed and suffered breathing issues.” He added that the baby sadly died, 30 hours after he was born.

Satish and Anita are now mourning their loss back home with their daughters.
