this woman has given birth to 38 children

We just got this long trending gist and feel like sharing...lol
 Ugandan woman, Mariam Nabatanzi Babirye, has given birth to 38 children, prompting villagers to give her the nickname, Nalongo Muzaala Bana, which means “the twin mother who produces quadruplets.” .

According to report Mariam has six sets of twins, four sets of triplets, three sets of quadruplets and two single births. While having so many children is a surprise for many, it is not so for Mariam, who says there is precedence in her family.


In a recent interview with a Ugandan daily, she
said: “My father gave birth to 45 children with different women and they all came in quintuplets, quadruplets, twins and triplets.” .

Dr Charles Kiggundu, a gynecologist at Mulago Hospital confirms that Mariam may have taken after her father, as her case may be genetic. He said: “Her case is genetic predisposition to hyper-ovulate (releasing multiple eggs in one cycle), which significantly increases the chance of having multiples.”

 
Mariam said she was married off at an early age and she gave birth for the first time at the age of 13 to twins. She said she sought medical advice several times in a bid to stop having children but doctors advised her that since she produces so many eggs, it would be dangerous to her health.

However, Dr Kiggundu said Mariam was not well advised, because doctors could easily have performed tubal ligation as a permanent method of contraception. Moreover, Mariam has a non-supportive husband who is rarely there for her and her children. .
.
Her eldest son, Charles Musisi, 23, confirmed: “Our siblings do not know what father looks like. I last saw him when I was 13 years old and only briefly at night because he rushed off again.” As a parting shot, Mariam advised parents to never sell their children off to early marriage and men to look after their wives and children.
