Mother Sonal Waghela Faints At Sight Of ‘Alien’ Baby

by | 12th, January 2011

THE mother, Sonal Waghela, fainted when she saw her baby – that looks, to some, like an alien.

At Dr Hiren Thumer’s clinic in Gondal, Gujarat, India,  Sonal Waghela passed out cold the first time she saw her child, whose head alone weighs 2.15 kg (women may well wince). His condition is a result of water collecting inside his brain.

The child is not being breastfed; he is being spoonfed mother’s milk.

Says Dr Thumer:

“The head swells like a balloon because of water accumulation inside the brain and hence the baby looks abnormal. Generally, these types of births occur in one in a hundred thousand deliveries. Such babies can be saved if brain surgery is conducted, else it dies within four to six months.”

The baby is thought to be responding well…
