Halima Cissé, a woman from Mali, recently made history by giving birth to nine babies in a single pregnancy. On December 22, 2020, Halima delivered five girls and four boys in Casablanca, Morocco’s port city. This is the highest number of babies ever born in a single pregnancy.
Halima’s pregnancy was closely monitored by a team of medical professionals in Morocco, including a team of doctors from Casablanca’s Ain Borja Maternity Hospital. Halima was admitted to the hospital at the end of her third trimester, and the doctors monitored her closely until the delivery.
Halima’s nine babies were born via cesarean section. The delivery was successful, and all nine babies were born healthy and without any complications. The babies were immediately taken to the neonatal intensive care unit for further observation and care.
The nine babies, whose names have not yet been released, are the first octuplets to be born in Morocco. The babies are also the first set of octuplets to be born in Africa.
Halima’s story has been met with joy and celebration in her home country of Mali, as well as in Morocco. Halima’s husband, family, and friends are overjoyed with the news of the nine healthy babies.
Halima’s story is an incredible one, and it is a reminder of the power of modern medicine and the dedication of medical professionals. Halima’s nine babies are a miracle, and they will be a source of joy and inspiration for many years to come.
