In the western US country of Mali, a woman has given birth to nine babies in one delivery.
Halima Cissé gave birth to the nonuplets in Morocco. Mali’s government flew her there for specialist care.”I’m very happy,” her husband told the BBC. “My wife and the babies [five girls and four boys] are doing well.”A woman who had eight babies in the US in 2009 holds the Guinness World Record for the most children delivered at a single birth to survive.
The Mali Health Department said, “This is the first time that 9 babies have been delivered in one delivery. A 25-year-old woman named Halima Sise has given birth to 9 children. 9 children include 5 girls and four boys. Mother and children are well.The doctors say, “We expected her to have 7 children. But he has nine children. The woman was sent to Morocco because Mali’s medical structure would not be suitable for seeing such large-scale deliveries.
All the babies have been kept in the incubator as they have been born prematurely. The weight of children is up to 500 grams. Doctors have also said that this is the first time in the medical world that 9 babies have been born and alive in a single delivery so far.
