Muskura Bibi: Mum Gave Birth To ‘Real Life Mermaid’ Baby In India
On Wednesday, a mum identified as Muskura Bibi, gave birth to a real life “mermaid baby” with fused legs in Kolkata, India. The 23-year-old who tragically lost her baby four hours later, did not go for a sonogram and so only discovered her baby was born with Mermaid Syndrome when she gave birth in Chittaranjan Deva Sadan Hospital.
It’s understood the gender of the “mermaid baby” couldn’t be determined due to the rare condition. Dr Sudip Saha, child specialist at the hospital said:
“I had never seen such a baby before. It is the first case of Sirenomelia in the state and second in the country.
“The baby had normal formation in upper part of the body but below the waist its legs were fused together. The lower part was not developed completely.
“We learnt the mother had not undergone ultrasound sonography throughout gestation.
“The parents are a labour couple and had not sought proper medication during pregnancy due to lack of money.
“Due to lack of proper nutrition and improper blood circulation to the baby from mother can create this kind of abnormality in fetus. Unfortunately such babies do not survive.”
