An Indian woman gave birth to conjoined twins with two heads and three arms. As per the details, such children are born one in a million.

The conjoined twins are born to a poor Indian farmer family, Ambika and Umakant Parida- through a c-section at a private hospital in Odisha’s Kendrapara district.

The conjoined twins are joined at the chest and abdomen, a condition that is medically known as Siamese twins.

A pediatrician posted at the District Hospital in Kendrapara Debashish Sahoo said “There are very rare chances of such children surviving and leading a normal life.”

The doctor added that “the newborn was eating with two mouths and breathing with two noses”.

The newborn’s condition had worsened for a while but doctors said they were soon stable.
