A Malian woman who broke the world record for giving birth to nine babies at once revealed that she had changed 100 diapers a day.
Halima Cisse, from Mali, completed her world-record pregnancy five months ago but says her children are doing well. When Cisse became pregnant, it was thought she was carrying seven babies. However, she gave birth to nine children at the same time after she was flown from Mali to Morocco for a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ in May.
A twenty-five-year-old girl from one of the West African countries, of course, could not even imagine that she would become the mother of such a large family at once, five girls and four boys.
“Giving one child is hard enough, but having nine children is unimaginable. It’s amazing the amount of work that goes into caring for them. I thank the medical team who did all the hard work and the Malian Government for funding this,” Cisse said.
The boys were named – Oumar, Elhadji, Bah and Mohammed VI, and the girls were named – Adama, Oumou, Eve, Kadidia and Fatouma.
“When the babies came out, there were so many questions in my mind. I was very aware of what was going on and it was as if there was an endless stream of babies coming from me,” she said.
They should be released soon, and they will go home. All the little ones are developing normally. Their birth was in the summer, and all this time they reached the norm in the clinic.
Halima has since revealed that she has passed 100 diapers per day and six liters of milk. She also said that she needed the help of a squad of nurses to provide round-the-clock care to her baby.
