It’s always special to have a baby, both for the parents and the family. But it’s a lot more different for the mother. No one can ever understand the happiness a mother get when she first sees the baby whom she carries in her womb for nine months.
However, seeing her baby for the first time was a horrifying experience rather than being special for 35 year-old, Khalida Begum.
Khalida refused to nurse the baby when she saw him. As her yet-to-be-named baby boy is not like any other baby, he is born with a rare condition. As per the doctors, he is born with a rare genetic condition called Harlequin Ichthyosis. But the doctors have also confirmed the symptoms of Anencephaly.
Anencephaly, according to Center For Disease Control And Prevention, causes children to be born without the top of their head. Although shocked initially, the mother did begin nursing the child later.
According to the source, the mother was quoted saying,
I couldn’t believe that I had a delivered an alien-like boy. I was so shocked and saddened by this that I asked the midwife to take the baby out of my sight.
The child is now home with his mother. Khalida’s house is crowded by people who wants to see the baby boy. Many have deemed the child supernatural and a lot of them also believe that the boy is an incarnation of Lord Hanuman.
This is not the first time people are referring a special child supernatural. It’s the lack of literacy and awareness about the genetic disorder that makes people believe in such superstitions.
