Mariam Nabatanzi, the world’s most prolific woman and a Ugandan resident, underwent surgery and will no longer be able to have children.
She had 44 native children by the age of 36.
The problem is that every month, not one, but several eggs ripen in Mariam due to a rare genetic anomaly.
Because the woman’s oral contraceptives were ineffective, the doctors decided to bandage her fallopian tubes.
Mariam’s story goes as follows: she married at the age of 12 and had twins a year later.
After her first child, the woman gave birth to twins five times, triplets four times, and quadruplets five times.
A mother with many children admitted that she never wanted to have more than six children.
“I grew up in tears.
My whole life has been spent taking care of my children and working to support them,” Mariam confessed.
Mariam’s 23-year-old eldest son dropped out of school to help his mother raise brothers and sisters.
A large family lives in four houses located next door, but there is still not enough space – some have to spend the night on the street.
