A woman in Uganda was named the most fertile woman for giving birth to 44 children at the age of 40.
Coming from Kabimbiri village in Mukono District, Mariam Nobatzi has given birth to six twins, four triplets, and three quadruplets. Reported by Oddity Central from 44 children who were born, 38 of them are still alive today.
To the Uganda Daily Monitor, Norkanzi told the story of his pain. At the age of 12, he must marry a man who is 28 years older.
He was forced to marry to avoid his stepmother trying to kill him. However, the husband often tortures him if he says something that is not liked. In 1994 when he was 13, he gave birth to his first twins.
Two years later, she gave birth to triplets and the next two years, quadruplets. Nobatzi claimed to not feel strange with the number of twins with whom he was born. The reason is, the father has 45 children from different women. Apart from him, there are twins to triplets.
In his sixth pregnancy, Nawatanzi has given birth to 18 children. The woman who initially dreamed of having six children then went to the hospital and wanted to take part in a contraception program.
But after undergoing several tests, the obstetrician asked him not to do contraception because it could threaten his life.
Doctor Ahmed Kikomeko from the Kawempe General Hospital explained that contraceptive actions not only threaten the reproductive system of Nawatanzi, but also his life. “I was asked to leave my cycle.
But I could try Inter Uterine Equipment (IUD). But I actually vomited incessantly and a coma for one month, “recalled Nobatzi.
At the age of 23, Nawatanzi has given birth to 25 children.
He returned to the hospital and asked that he no longer have children. But by the hospital, he was told there was nothing that could be done because Nobatzi eggs were still very high.
Doctor Charles Kiggundu from Mulago Kampala Hospital said, he believed that Nobatzi fertility which was so extreme was a genetic factor.
“The case is hyper-ovulation (releasing several eggs in a cycle) thus increasing the chances of giving birth to twins,” explained Kiggundu. Even so, Kiggundu said there was a procedure that could stop pregnancy. It’s just that it’s not known to them.
