Shock As Woman Gives Birth To Baby With 2 Faces (Photos+Video)

Posted by Thandiubani on Mon 23rd Jul, 2018 –

People were left in a state of shock after a mother gave birth to a baby with two faces but just one head.

A baby has been born in Indonesia with two faces because his conjoined twin did not develop properly in the womb, according to a report by Dailymail.

The two-month-old Gilang Andika, from Batam, a city in Indonesia about 20 miles (32km) across the sea from Singapore, has two faces and two brains but just one head.

The complication has left him looking disfigured and suffering from a potentially fatal brain condition, which is causing fluid to build up.

Although he has just one body with two arms and two legs, Gilang is technically a conjoined twin – a condition which affects one in every 250,000 births.

On his head he has the face and brain of a sibling which did not grow its own body in the womb, because their mother’s egg did not completely split in two during pregnancy.

His parents, Ernilasari and Mustafa, now desperately want help to save their son’s life after local doctors told them they were unable to operate.

Because of his rare predicament, Gilang cannot be breastfed, so has to be fed milk through a tube.

And doctors have said he is not likely to live long because of his condition. 

The unfortunate infant also has a condition called hydrocephalus, which is caused by a build-up of fluid in the brain. 

Many babies who are born with hydrocephalus have long-term brain damage, which can cause learning disabilities, speech, vision or memory problems, or epilepsy.

Mother Ernilasari and father Mustafa did not know about their son’s serious illness until he was born by Caesarean section.
