(Scroll down for video) A mother of three children was left bedridden and looking like a toddler after giving birth to her third child.

Shanti Devi of Uttar Pradesh, India, was a healthy woman who was five feet tall when she married her husband, Gangacharan Kushwaha, 35 years ago.

However, after giving birth to her third child, a boy, Devi began shrinking. She is now just two feet tall.

Her husband said that they went to many doctors, but nobody was able to diagnose the problem.

The family is not sure if she was injured during the birth or if it came after a neighbor’s roof fell onto her legs.

Devi, who is now 60 years old, has been suffering for the past 25 years. She was left bedridden. Her limbs are twisted and are so rigid that she is unable to move.

After all these years of suffering, Kushwaha, 62, who is a farmer, is lovingly taking care of her.

Recently, a physician, Dr. Pankaj Srivastava, said that the woman could be suffering from Brittle Bone Disease, which is also known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta.
