Mali Woman Gives Birth To 9 Babies In Morocco

12

A woman has become a mum-of-nine by giving birth to nonuplets after doctors missed two of her babies in a scan. Halima Cisse, 25, from Mali, captured the attention of the West African nation when she delivered her nine babies via c-section on Tuesday. Doctors originally thought she would give birth to seven babies after she had an ultrasound. She was flown to Morocco for specialist care in March and this is where she gave birth. Mali's health minister Fanta Siby said: "The newborns (five girls and four boys) and the mother are all doing well." Doctors missed two of Ms Cisse's children in the ultrasound scans.

Ms Cisse spent two weeks in Point G Hospital in the Malian capital of Bamako before she was transferred to Morocco after the intervention of Mali's President of Transition Bah N'Daw
