A baby girl has been born in India without a head that has left her with shockingly protruding eyes.
Savita Rani, 32, from Amroha district of Uttar Pradesh, in northern India, gave birth to her “miracle baby” on Tuesday after a natural birth, Mail on Sunday said.
But soon after the birth she became the talk of the town due to her shocking features. A large number of people started to even gather outside the Sai Nursing Home clinic in the hope of seeing the “miracle child.”
Two days later, however, the baby girl tragically died of heart failure.
Dr Kusum Lata, 30, a gynaecologist at Sai Nursing Home, said: ‘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.”
The mother, who already has three very healthy children, faced extreme difficulties during labour and lost a lot of fluid and blood.
He explained that the baby girl’s brain had not formed properly in the womb and her heart had kept her alive.
The mother has now been discharged from hospital and is trying to come to terms with her loss.
Dr Lata added it was a miracle both mother and child survived as long as they did.
