Woman from Mali gives birth to 9 babies

 A woman from Mali in Africa made a world record after she has given birth to nine babies. Halima Cisse had been expecting to have seven babies at first when ultrasound failed to spot the two other babies.

"The newborns (five girls and four boys) and the mother are all doing well," Mali's health minister, Dr. Fanta Siby, said in an announcement.

The babies were born in Morocco where the 25-year-old mom gave birth by cesarean section and doctors were surprised to find two more babies have been found, the health ministry said. The newborn's weights varied between 500 grams and 1 kilograms, and they were delivered at 30 weeks.

During her stay at the clinic, doctors sought to delay the birth for weeks, to give the fetuses additional time to develop. She suffered a severe hemorrhage related to the expansion of her uterus.

Cisse's husband Adjudant Kader Arby who remained in Mali with their daughter says,  "i'm very happy," he told told BBC. "My wife and the babies are doing well."

So far, a woman who had eight babies in the US in 2009 holds the Guinness World Record for the most children delivered at a single birth.

Other two sets of nonuplets have previously recorded - one woman in Australia in 1971 and another to a woman in Malaysia in 199 but all the babies doesn't survived after a few days.
