A woman from Uganda has given birth to a jaw-dropping 38 children, and surprisingly she is only 37 years old.
The mother, Mariam Nabatanzi, has delivered all her children at home except her latest addition who is now four months old, reports the Nairobi News. The newborn had to be delivered by caesarean section at a local hospital.
The mother of 38 claims she was married off by age 12 in 1993 to a much older 40-year-old man. The mother has reportedly given birth to an astounding six sets of twins, four sets of triplets and three sets of quadruples.
Dr Charles Kiggundu, a gynecologist at Mulago Hospital and President of gynaecologists and obstetricians said, “Her case is genetic predisposition to hyper-ovulate (releasing multiple eggs in one cycle), which significantly increases the chance of having multiples; it is always genetic.”
Ten of the children are girls and the remaining 28 are boys. The eldest of the brood is 23 years old and the youngest just four months. Read more at Yahoo News.
