Woman gives birth to baby with two heads in Lagos
Wonders will never cease! This was the comment made by both doctors and nurses at a hospital in the Ogudu area of Lagos State were thrown into shock after a pregnant woman who was expecting twins gave birth to a baby with two heads.
According to sources, the strange birth took place at the Med-In Specialist Hospital located on Oshogbo Street in the Ogudu area where the woman put to bed the baby girl with two heads.
The baby was said to have one neck, chest, two legs and two hands. Doctors at the hospital said the baby was born around 6:30 pm on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, through an elective caesarean section.
It was gathered that the baby was resuscitated and transferred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), for advanced care.
According to one of the nurses who was in the delivery room, they had prepared two cots for each of the twins but were shocked when they saw that they were conjoined.
“This is the first time I am seeing anything like this. I have watched it in movies but seeing it in real life was such an experience for me. Thankfully, the surgeon ensured that they survived.
As I speak to you, the mother doesn’t know the condition of the babies. She still believes and expects to carry her twins. We haven’t told her yet.
Only her husband was brought into the theater to see the baby and he was the one who went with the doctors to LUTH,” the nurse said.
