(Newser) – A woman in India gave birth to a very rare set of conjoined twins yesterday: They have separate spinal cords, necks, and heads, but share everything else, so there is a very slim chance the girls would be able to be separated. According to New York Daily News, mom Urmila Sharma couldn't afford an ultrasound early on in her pregnancy and believed she was only carrying one child; it was just two weeks ago when her doctors realized Sharma was carrying conjoined twins.
