She comes from Uganda, the most fertile woman in the world: she has had 44 children in 40 years. Here is his story
Her name is Mariam Nabatanzi and she is a 40-year-old woman living in Uganda and she is considered the most fertile woman in the world, having given birth to 44 children in the course of her life.
She is known in her village with the name Nalongo Muzaala Bana, or "the twin mother who produces four twins". In fact, she Mariam gave birth to six pairs of twins: four series of triplets and three series of quadruplets.
Of the 44 children she gave birth, 38 are still alive today, and most of them live in the family home. As if that weren't enough Mariam is a single mother who, however, despite all the difficulties, somehow manages to put enough food on the table every day for everyone.
Her life was anything but easy: she was married to a 28-year-old man at the age of 12. She even survived an assassination attempt by her stepmother. According to Dr. Kiggundu, a gynecologist at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, the cause of Mariam's extreme fertility is genetic: "It is a genetic predisposition to hyperovulation (which releases more eggs in a cycle), which significantly increases the chance of having twins.
