Doctors were stunned in an Indian Hospital when 32-year old Savita Rani, from Amroha district of Uttar Pradesh, India, gave birth to the half-head child on Tuesday through the natural process.
Unfortunately, the child died two days after as doctors could not do anything to help her situation.
Dr Kusum Lata, the gynecologist of the Nursing Home where the birth took place said about the child:
These complications occur due to incorrect and irregular eating habits of the mother during pregnancy.This is why we as doctors keep emphasising on regular check ups of the women during pregnancy so we can try to guide the mother and hope to avoid such birth abnormalities. The baby’s eyes were so large that she was born with them already open because her head had not formed properly.
She didn’t have normal movements like other babies when they are born – she wasn’t crying or moving. It was a miracle both mother and child survived. The mother, who already has 3 very healthy children, faced extreme difficulties during labour and lost a lot of fluid and blood.
The baby girl’s brain had not formed properly in the womb and her heart had kept her alive. But 48 hours later – on Thursday morning – the baby girl died of heart failure. The mum has now been discharged from hospital and is trying to come to terms with her loss.
