A 42-year-old woman gives birth to 11 healthy baby boys. The doctors in Indiana were shocked, and called this birth a miraculous one.
As stated in the hospital report, Mariya Fernandes gave birth after undergoing only two hours of labor and a miraculous birth.
Maryia and her husband had trouble conceiving. Then, being desperate to become parents, they decided to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF). However, it turned out that this was more than they had hoped for, as they got 11 babies at once.
Six of the 11 baby boys are identical twins and weigh 1-1.5 pounds. All of them are in stable condition, and they are presently situated in the neonatal intensive care unit at Riley Children`s Hospital.
What surprised, and even shocked the doctors, was the fact that they have managed to perform such a successful delivery without the use of caesarian section.
As stated by Dr. William Roberts:
“THEY LITERALLY CAME OUT ONE AFTER ANOTHER. FROM THE TIME THE FIRST BABY CAME OUT, AND THE 11TH BABY WAS BORN, IT WAS ONLY 37 MINUTES”.
The Guinness Book of World Records was contacted by the hospital staff who wanted to provide them with the information about Mariya Fernandes, so that she gets registered in the 2015 edition.
