Baby With Two Heads Born In Brazil, A baby boy with two perfectly formed heads was born in Brazil this week, the country’s media reported. The 10.1-pound baby was delivered by emergency C-section early Monday in Anajas, in the northeastern Para State.
“And for us, it was a great surprise to find out that the child was in really good health.” – Claudionor Assis de Vasconcelos, director of Hospital Municipal de Anajas
The baby’s 23-year-old Brazilian mother was admitted to the Hospital Municipal de Anajas in severe pain, Diario do Para reported.
She did not have any ultrasound exams during her pregnancy and was made aware of the baby’s condition only a few moments before the birth.
The infant shares one heart and one set of vital organs, but both heads have started nursing normally, doctors told the media.
Joseph Brazil, the obstetrician responsible for the delivery, said the child has “an amazing appetite.”
“Despite all the problems we have as a small interior hospital we managed to save both mother and baby, which was our aim,” the hospital’s director, Claudionor Assis de Vasconcelos, told reporters.
“And for us, it was a great surprise to find out that the child was in really good health,” she added.
The baby’s mother, who has other children, has bonded well with her newborn and wanted to take the child home straightaway, she added.
However, the mother and baby were taken Wednesday by air ambulance to the city of Belem so doctors could carry out further tests.
