25 yo Malian Woman from Morocco Delivers 9 Babies in a Single Birth
A Malian woman has given birth to nonuplets which consist of five girls and four boys. The 25-year-old Halima Cisse delivered all her children on May 4 in Morocco via Caesarean section and she was rushed in for specialist care by Mali’s government on March 30.
The ultrasound earlier had detected seven babies within her womb but Mali’s health Minister, Fanta Siby and Cisse’s husband, Adjudant Kader Arby were joyful that all the children and Cisse herself are doing well after the process. Arby who is still in Mali with their older daughter said that he was unworried for the future of the family where God has given them these children and He is the one to decided what will happen to them. The man is also said that he had been overwhelmed by the support for the family which included a call from the country’s President and other Malian authorities.
The birth of Cisse’s children means that she breaks the Guinness World Record for most children delivered at a single birth to survive, the BBC highlighted. It had previously been held by a U.S. woman named Nadya Suleman, who had given birth to eight babies conceived through in-vitro fertilisation in 2009.
