BAMACO, Mali. – A Malian woman has given birth to nine children at once, just after seven, according to the Malian Ministry of Health, the Moroccan clinic where the grandchildren were born.

It was reported that for the first time a woman gave birth to nine surviving children at once.

The five girls and four boys and their mother “are all doing well,” said a statement from Mali’s health minister.

Mali, 25, Halima Cisse, gave birth by caesarean section in Morocco after being sent to intensive care, said a senior Malian health official.

Associated Press reporters on Wednesday saw children shaking their arms and legs inside incubators at a private clinic in Ain Borja, Casablanca. The medical staff regularly checked their status in the neonatal ward with upholstered cartoons.

Cisse was expecting seven babies. Doctors in Mali have sent her to Morocco on a government-ordered maternity leave as hospitals in Mali, one of the world’s poorest countries, are poorly equipped to provide adequate care for this unique multiple pregnancy.

The director of the Casablanca clinic, Youssef Alaou, told Moroccan state television that doctors in Mali had contacted him about the incident a month and a half ago. He said they were not expecting nine babies.

She said that Cisse gave birth prematurely at 30 weeks and is now in a stable condition after heavy bleeding, for which she received a blood transfusion.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record for most live births is eight, confirms the birth of Morocco.

The current holder of the Guinness Book of Records is American Nadia Suleiman, who in 2009 gave birth to eight premature but otherwise healthy children.

The director of the clinic, Alau, said he was aware that Cisse had not used fertility treatments. The Mali Ministry of Health did not provide any other information about the pregnancy or the birth.

Hagop Khalaf, a professor of reproductive medicine at King’s College London, said such births would be extremely unlikely without birth control, noting the dangers of such births.

The mother “was in a serious womb to lose her womb or lose her life,” she said. Newborns “may have physical or mental disabilities.” “The risk of stroke is astronomically higher.”

She urged people around the world to be more aware of the costs of monitoring fertility treatment, the risks of having a premature birth at once.
