An Indiana woman named Maria Hernandez, 42 years old, has given birth to 11 completely healthy baby boys, which is nothing short of a miracle according to some doctors. In fact, this might even be a world record. Maria had to suffer only two hours of labor and gave birth naturally without even a C section delivery.
Her gestation period actually continued for 38 weeks, which is quite rare especially when multiple babies are born.
Her husband said that he and her wife were having a few difficulties in conceiving, so they decided to choose in vitro fertilization (IVF), since they wanted to be parents at all costs. And now their dream has been fulfilled. Among the 11 babies, 6 are exact twins. All of them currently weigh between 1 pound and 1.5 pounds, which is a healthy weight for new-born babies. They are currently under care at Riley Children’s Hospital. Doctors have assured that they are perfectly stable and there is no reason to get worried.
Most doctors were quite surprised at this miracle, since they have never seen or even heard of such a complicated birth happening naturally without caesarean section. Dr. William Roberts, who was present during the birth, later reported that the doctors and nurses had no idea when the babies will stop coming out; they were just coming out one after another. It took a total of 17 minutes for the birth of those 11 babies.
The Guinness Book of World Records has already been informed about this miracle by the hospital so that Maria’s name will be included in the 2015 edition.
