wonders will never end for sure. A woman has set an shocking new record by giving birth to 17 children in a lone pregnancy after 29 hours at the Indianapolis Memorial Hospital. This is according to unconfirmed reports going around in social media
“It was incredible” explains Dr. Jack Morrow who assisted the woman through the whole operation.
“The babies kept coming and coming and coming and coming…… Man! I think I’m gonna have nightmares about this day for a long time! This was my last delivery!” he adds in disgust.
The couple had been trying to have children for 17 years and failed. They tried medicinal and later decided to visit local clinic for health check up which later worked for them.
The couple has already chosen the names for the boys with an obvious continuity of thought: James, Jacob, Jarod, Jarvis, Jason, Jeffrey, Jeremy, Jerome, Jesse, Jimmy, Joachim, Jonathan, Jonas, Joseph, Julian, Jimbo and surprisingly, Darth Porkinus.
For the latest record, the highest number of babies born to one mother at one time is nine (Nonuplets). In 1971, a woman in Australia gave birth to 9 babies, but none of the babies lived more than six days. Then, in 1999, a woman in Malaysia also gave birth to 9 babies, but all died within 6 hours of birth.
