On May 5, 2021, Halima Cisse’s lengthy pregnancy came to an end. In Casablanca, Morocco, she gave birth to nine babies at the Ain Borja clinic. The birth of Cisse’s nonuplets broke the world record set by Nadya Suleman in 2009, when she delivered eight children who all survived the process. Since giving birth to her nine youngsters, the little ones have been observed carefully and are now almost ready to return home to Mali.
Halima Cisse and her nine newborns are making their debut on the internet for the first time, accompanied by hundreds of images of them. Despite giving birth five months ago, the family has been under close supervision from hospital personnel who were ensuring that the kids survived the trauma. Now that they’re in better condition, the family is readying to fly home to Mali so they can begin their new life as a family. But they may never totally get away from the glare of the media, which is eager to learn about the world’s most newborns.
The twenty-six-year-old mother said in an interview: “All of them are getting on very well and are a joy to look after. They are getting stronger every day, and it may well be they are allowed to leave full-time medical care soon so that we can take them home.”
She got her nine children naturally. When they were born, though, they weighed between 500g and 1kg. The newborns had to remain in the neonatal intensive care unit because of their tiny size. Incubators were used to assist the kids survive delivery and get healthier during their first few months of life. All nine youngsters now weigh more than Ibu, and they are getting ready to return home to Mali to live a happy existence with their mother and father.
Cisse and her 35-year-old partner, Kader Arby, were overwhelmed with joy as they shared updates about the family on social media. The four boys are Oumar, Elhadji, Bah, and Mohammed VI. The five girls are Adama, Oumou, Hawa, Kadidia, and Fatouma.
They were taken from incubators back in August and have been living in an apartment near the hospital, allowing medical personnel to observe their development.
“Giving birth to one child is hard enough, but having nine is unimaginable,” stated the mom. “It’s astonishing the amount of work that is involved in looking after them. I’m grateful to the medical team that is doing all the hard work and the Government of Mali for funding this.”
According to Kader, Cessis’ spouse and the father of the children, mom lost a significant amount of blood during delivery. Doctors estimated that the mom’s belly weighed more than 30 kg after combining the babies and birthing fluids.
Dad stated, “Being together as a family is the best thing in the world, and we give thanks to God all the time. The most important thing is that we are all safe and well and in great hands.”
