Nonuplets are extremely rare in medical practice

A Malian woman gave birth to nonuplets in Morocco on Tuesday and all nine babies are “doing well”, according to a statement from the Mali Health Ministry.

Anadolu Agency reports that Halima Cisse, 25, delivered five girls and four boys.

According to the evaluation of doctors both in Mali and Morocco, Cisse was initially expected to have septuplets but gave birth by cesarean section to nonuplets, shocking the doctors, who had not noticed another two siblings during ultrasounds.

After a two-week medical stay at a hospital in the Malian capital Bamako, the doctors requested specialist care for the rare case of Cisse.
