Anju Kushwaha, 28, from the Satna district of central Madhya Pradesh province in India miscarried 10 babies in one night in what has been called a medical record, according to reports.
She’d have to be an Indian Goddess to handle so many children.
An Indian woman reportedly miscarried 10 babies in one night setting a new medical record following complications with her fertility treatments.
The 28-year-old allegedly delivered the first nine babies entirely on her own before arriving to a hospital in the Central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh late Sunday night, the Times of India reported.
“She delivered nine of them midway. Obstetric and NICU team at our hospital helped her to deliver the 10th one in the operation theatre,” Dr. SK Pathak, assistant superintendent of the hospital the Times of India.
He added that “all were born dead at almost 12 weeks.”
The astonishing number of births is said to have broke India’s records but appeared to have no other happy ending for the mother and her husband who was reportedly by her side throughout the deliveries.
The 28-year-old entered a Central India hospital late Sunday night after already delivering nine of her 10 babies on her own, according to one doctor.
Doctors told the paper that the expecting mother, Anju Kushwaha, allegedly experienced an extreme form of multifetal pregnancy.
The condition usually causes one to produce twins or triplets.
The liklihood of such a case can be increased “significantly” with the use of fertility treatments, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
With fertility treatments allegedly added to the mix, it created a rivaling womb to the famous “Octomom” who successfully delivered eight babies in 2009.
Still topping Octomom’s astonishing brood was an Italian doctor’s claim of having once delivered 15 babies all at one time to a woman in Rome in 1971.
Dr. Sumitra Yadav, a senior gynecologist associated with Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore, told the Times of India that there was a chance to save at least a few of the latest mom-to-be’s newborns.
Sadly he said that it was an opportunity missed by the mother.
“It seems that that there was no regular follow-up of her pregnancy after IVF. At least three offspring’s could have been saved by reducing the pregnancy,” he said.
