Woman Gives Birth To 10 Babies After Doctors Miss Four During Scan
10 Jun 2021
Gosiame Thamara Sithole has become a world record holder after she reportedly gave birth to 10 babies.
The South African mother when her claim is verified by Guinness World Records will have beaten 25-year-old Halima Cissé from Mali gave birth to nine babies, who are reportedly doing well at a clinic in Morocco just last month.
Her husband Teboho Tsotetsi told Pretoria News after the birth, “It’s seven boys and three girls. I am happy. I am emotional. I can’t talk much.”
Doctors had initially told her she was expecting six children before later scans incorrectly revised the figure up to eight.
Earlier in the year Sithole expressed worry that her unborn children would not survive the high-risk pregnancy having been sick and experiencing leg pain and heartburn.
“That was sorted and I have been okay since then. I can’t wait for my children,” she told the newspaper at the time.
All were born alive and will spend the next few months in incubators before they can be taken home.
