Meet Ugandan Woman Who Has Given Birth To 44 Children (photos)

Miriam Nabatanzi married at the age of 12 and gave birth to twins a year later that marked the start of her productive years. Five more sets of twins, four sets of triplets, and five sets of quadruplets followed in consecutively with a slight age difference. She had a total of 44 children, however, six of them died as a result of illness that struck when they were young and weak because some were put in incubators. However, four years ago, the 40-year-old woman was abandoned by her husband, leaving her to shoulder the entire family's burden

She was obliged to work physical jobs since she needed medical treatment and school costs for her children. A single day can require up to 25 kilograms of flour and 4 kilograms of sugar among other basic needs that can't be avoided. Miriam claims that she has no regrets and that having children is a God-given gift and some of them might be successful in life.

The fact that her children are growing up without their fathers is the only thing that bothers her because of their mental development. Her eldest son had to leave school to care for his younger siblings while the mother is out searching for food. Doctors believe her condition is caused by a genetic propensity to hyper-ovulation, or the release of numerous eggs in one cycle, which enhances the odds of producing multiple children.
