Woman gives birth to 9 babies after having nonuplets as doctors missed two in scan – World News

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.

Nonuplets are extremely rare and medical complications associated with multiple births often mean that some of the babies do not reach full term.
