Halima Cisse, 25, gave birth to nine babies on Tuesday, 4. During pregnancy tests, doctors detected that the Malian woman was expecting seven children. However, the mother was surprised with two more children after the cesarean section in Morocco.
The five girls and four boys are in good health, contrary to a tragic history of the birth of multiple twins. In the only two known cases of pregnancies of nine babies – the first in an Australian woman in 1971 and the second in a Malaysian woman in 1999 – none of the newborns survived. In addition, the first octuplets that survived were born in 2009 to a woman from the United States who conceived them by in vitro fertilization.

Mali’s Minister of Health, Fanta Siby, congratulated the medical teams of his country and also of Morocco for the “happy result” of Hamila Cisse’s pregnancy. Pregnancy became a recurring topic in the Malian press even when the woman was thought to be carrying “only” seven babies. As there were concerns about the welfare of pregnant women and children, the Malian government decided to intervene and bankrolled his two-week stay in a hospital in the capital Bamako. However, it was decided on March 30 that it would be better to transfer her to receive medical care in Morocco, where she spent another five weeks. Halima Cisse and her nine children are expected to return home in a few weeks.
