Strong woman who gave birth to record-breaking nonuplets returns home with babies after 1 year abroad

A group of nine babies (nonuplets) who broke the record for the most children delivered in a single birth to survive have returned to their native Mali after 19 months in Morocco where they were born.

Born on 4 May 2021 to Malian parents, Halima Cissé and Abdelkader Arby, the babies were flown to Casablanca, Morocco for specialist care on the orders of the Malian authorities.

The nonuplets were delivered via Caesarean section (CS) at 30 weeks after doctors in Mali initially thought their mother, Cissé, was carrying seven of them.
