Doctors where shocked when a 42-year-old woman gives birth to 11 healthy baby boys. They said that it was a miracle. Mariya Fernandes, gave birth after undergoing only two hours of labor.
Fernandez and her husband decided to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF), because they were desperate to become parents and had trouble conceiving. They were surprised when they got 11 babies, which is much more than they had hoped for.
Six of the 11 boys are identical twins all weighing in between 1 pound – 1.5 pounds. They are currently in stable condition in the neonatal intensive care unit at Riley Children’s Hospital.
What surprised doctors the most was the successful delivery without caesarian section.
Dr. William Roberts said:They literally came out one after another.
From the time the first baby came out, and the 11th baby was born, it was only 37 minutes.
Hopefully, Mariya Fernandes and her family will be registered in the 2015 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records since the hospital staff have contacted them and provided all the necessary information.
