A 42 year old woman gave birth to 11 healthy babies after only 2hours of labour. More strange is the fact that she carried the babies through a 38weeks gestational period which doesn’t normally happen in multiple deliveries.
Maria Hernandes and her husband who are based in Indianapolis have had trouble conceiving so they decided to try In-Vitro fertization.
Six of the 11 boys were said to be identical twins all weighing in between 1 pound – 1.5 pounds. They were in stable condition in the neonatal intensive care unit at Riley Children’s Hospital.
Doctors were very surprised, most mainly said they were shocked, to have such a successful delivery without caesarian section.
Guiness book of world records was contacted to include the miraculous, record-breaking delivery in their last edition.
