Guinness World Records regularly takes to their Instagram page to share different kinds of world records created by people from around the world. In their recent post, they shared a record about a woman who delivered nonuplets, five girls and four boys. Furthermore, the organisation also posted a video that shows the nine toddlers with their mom and dad.
“Most children delivered at a single birth to survive: 9 – Adama, Oumou, Hawa, Kadidia, Fatouma, Oumar, Elhadji, Bah and Mohammed VI Cissé, With thanks to @groupe_akdital (Groupe AKDITAL), Ain Borja Clinic in Casablanca, Morocco,” they wrote. While replying to their own post, they also shared more information.
“The five baby girls (Adama, Oumou, Hawa, Kadidia, Fatouma) and four baby boys (Oumar, Elhadji, Bah and Mohammed VI) were born prematurely via Caesarean section on 4 May 2021, 30 weeks into Mrs Cissé’s pregnancy,” they posted. “Nonuplets are extremely rare, and until the arrival of the Cissé children, no cases had been recorded of nine babies from a single birth surviving for more than a few hours,” they added. “At first, doctors in Mali thought that mother Halima was carrying seven children, however, after the Malian government flew her to a specialist clinic in Morocco, two more were discovered! Thanks to AKDITAL Group @groupe_akdital Ain Borja Clinic in Casablanca, Morocco,” they further explained.
