Halima Sisis, 25, was expected to have seven children but health officials said two of the siblings missed the ultrasound test.
According to the Malian government, a Malian woman has given birth to nine children and joined a small group of mothers of nonplatelets.
The pregnancy of 25-year-old Halima Sis fascinated the country and attracted the attention of its leaders. When doctors said in March that Chris needed specialist care, authorities took him to Morocco, where he gave birth to five girls and four boys in a caesarean section on Tuesday.
“The newborns (five daughters and four sons) and the mother are all doing well,” Mali’s health minister Fanta CB said in a statement, adding that they would return to the country in a few weeks.
CB congratulated her “on the medical teams of Mali and Morocco, whose professionalism is the source of the happy outcome of this pregnancy”.
According to the ultrasound conducted in Morocco and Mali, the two babies who were abandoned were expected to give birth to septaplets (seven babies).
Rare for women who successfully carry septurates – and nonapplet is even rarer.
Moroccan authorities have not yet confirmed what happened. Health ministry spokesman Rashid Kaudhari said he was not aware of any such births in any of the country’s hospitals, AFP news agency reported.
