Halima Cisse gives birth to nonuplets thus making history
Halima Cisse ultrasounds reports that were conducted in both Mali and Morrocco showed only seven kids. But, she gave birth to five daughters and four sons. She has created history by delivering healthy nonuplets at once. Halima gave birth through cesarean section, and after giving birth, she was shifted to the special care unit.The health ministry confirmed that babies and Halima are doing fine, and this is the first delivery of nonuplets.
Who is the previous record holder?
As per data collected by the health ministry, every year in the US in 87.7 per 100,000 live births, triplets or more were born. The previous record-holder Nadya Suleman delivered six boys and two girls in 2009 California. According to the Guinness book of world records, the babies were through Vitro fertilization, and delivery was through c-section.
Halima is a 25-year-old Moroccan female who delivered healthy nonuplets in a private clinic. The weight of the babies was between 500 grams and 1kg (1.1lb and 2.2lb) at the time of the birth. The medical director admitted Halima when she was 25 weeks pregnant due to the complicated case. With proper care, the labor time was stretching up to 30 weeks, and only after that, the delivery could be done.
Doctors said that the delivery was not through any artificial method, and she conceived naturally. At the time of admission to the hospital, she was bleeding heavily, which was brought under control. She was in danger of losing her life or the children, but both survived.
The health minister congratulated the medical teams in Mali and Morocco for the “happy outcome”.Cissé’s husband, Adjudant Kader Arby, said that he is thrilled that God has allowed him to have such a blessing, and he happy.
“God gave us these children. He is the one to decide what will happen to them. I’m not worried about that. When the almighty does something, he knows why,” he told BBC Afrique.
