According to reports from Moroccan state TV, a 25-year-old Malian female gave birth to a record 9 babies last Tuesday. The female originally expected 7 babies, however, was surprised when an additional two more appeared during delivery which was done via cesarean section.
The historic event was made possible after Malian doctors sent the expecting mother, Halima Cisse to Morocco for the best health care possible, weeks before the due date because the hospitals in Mali were not equipped to provide adequate care needed for the multi pregnancy and delivery.
The babies who are now in incubators turned out to be 4 boys and 5 girls, the babies were born prematurely at only thirty weeks, Halima is said to be in stable condition after experiencing heavy bleeding which was treated with a blood transfusion.
