Recently, the world was left in shock when an American news station reported that a 42-year old woman gave birth to 11 babies without a C-Section! As it was stated in the report, Mariya Fernandes delivered 11 healthy babies after only 2 hours of labor!
After they got married, Mariya and her husband had trouble conceiving, so they decided to try in-vitro fertilization. However, the method got them more than they could dream of, as Mariya gave birth to 11 babies! Six of the 11 babies were identical twins and weighed 1-1.5 pounds. All of them are stable, and are currently at the neonatal intensive care unit at Riley Children’s Hospital.
However, the most amazing thing about the process was that it was done without a C-Section, which is a standard procedure for this kind of delivery. Dr. William Roberts said: “They literally came out one after another! From the time the first baby came out, and the 11th baby was born, it was only 37 minutes!” After Mariya gave birth, the hospital staff contacted the Guinness World Book of Records to provide information about the amazing delivery!
