A Mali woman gave birth to a non-applet in Morocco on Tuesday, and all nine babies are “on track,” her government said, but Moroccan authorities say what a very rare case is. I haven’t confirmed it yet.
On March 30, the Mali government sent a 25-year-old woman, Hari Matisse, from the northern part of a poor state in West Africa to Morocco for better care. She was initially thought to be carrying the sextuplets.
Cases of women who succeed in carrying septuplets to maturity are rare, and non-uplets are even rarer.
Moroccan health ministry spokesman Rakkid Kodari said he was unaware that such multiple births had occurred in one of the country’s hospitals.
However, Mali’s Ministry of Health said in a statement that the Caesarean section gave birth to five girls and four boys.
“Mothers and babies are doing well so far,” Mali’s health minister, Fanta Sibby, told AFP, adding that she was always informed by Mali’s doctor who accompanied Sith to Morocco.
She added that they will return home in a few weeks.
According to local reports, doctors were worried about Sith’s health and the baby’s chances of survival.
Mali’s Ministry of Health said in a statement that ultrasonography performed in both Mali and Morocco suggested that Sith was carrying seven babies.
Sibby congratulated “Mali and Moroccan medical teams who are professional at the origin of the happy consequences of this pregnancy.”
