Baby born with 4 arms and 4 legs in Nakhon Phanom.

A woman in Nakhon Phanom District gave birth to a baby with 4 arms and 4 legs. The baby is strong but doctors are keeping a close eye to make sure. Kaisakorn Kongchalad the governor of Nakhon Phanom gave orders for officials to provide support to Tiwanee 22-year-old convenience store employee in Tha Uten District. This is Tiwanee’s 2nd daughter but this time her newborn has 2 arms and 2 legs weighing 2,990 grams. Other parts of her body are normal and she can breathe on her own. The baby was born by C-section at 16.00 on 16 December 2020. The family named the girl Pawida but they are still coming up with a nickname.

The Nakhon Phanom Hospital has transferred the baby to Srinakharin Hospital Sukhumvit in Khon Kaen Province for further tests to make sure the baby is healthy. Employees at the Nakhon Phanom Hospital stated Tiwanee gave birth to her second child today. The first daughter is already 4 years old. The mother went to a local health clinic for antenatal care in the province. She was given an X-ray but the medical personnel at the hospital found nothing uncommon about the pregnancy.

When it was near the time of birth Tiwanee went for a final check-up at the Tha Uthen Hospital. The hospital found that the baby had 4 arms and 4 legs. The mother was transferred to Nakhon Phanom Hospital where she received care from the pediatricians. The baby is now safe and able to breathe on her own. She will be under medical care until it is confirmed safe to leave the hospital. In 2019 a baby was born in India with similar conditions. The baby was called an octopus baby with 4 legs, 4 arms, and 3 hands that covered her body. The doctors stated the baby was originally a part of a set of triplets where 2 become conjoined. The remaining baby was a healthy male and the octopus baby had minor breathing issues.
