A Malian woman gave birth to nine babies after doctors missed two on her scans and told her she would have seven.

Ms. Cisse was flown to Morocco to make sure the babies were delivered safely after the pregnancy caught the attention of the West African country’s leaders.

“The newborns (five girls and four boys) and the mother are all fine,” Mali’s health minister Fanta Siby said in a statement.

Cisse was expected to give birth to seven babies, according to ultrasounds conducted in Morocco and Mali that two of the siblings were missing. They all gave birth by Caesarean section.

Nonuplets are extremely rare and medical complications in these types of multiples often mean that some babies do not reach full-term pregnancy.
