The baby's mother gave birth at a health centre after suffering pain before going into labour.

To her shock and the shock of the medics assisting her, the little girl was born with two large protrusions at the back of her skull. 

According to reports, doctors have said that they will be conducting a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan to determine the exact medical condition of the infant.

"This is a very rare medical condition," explained Rajesh Thakur, Chief Medical Superintendent, District Hospital, Etah.

"The child's body has not fully developed. We will perform an MRI scan and then perform a surgery to separate the 'heads'."

A video of the baby has been shared on various news platforms. Have a look below, but be warned, this is not for sensitive viewers.
