Indian Woman Miscarries 10 Babies in One Day

by at . Comments

Anju Kushwawa, a 28-year-old mother in India, delivered 9 babies at home on Sunday night before delivering a 10th at a local hospital, setting a record in the country.

She was around 12 weeks pregnant and all of the babies passed away before being born.

Doctors believe fertility drugs may have contributed to Kushwawa's multiple losses. After undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) she received very little follow-up medical care. 

Her high-order muliples pregnancy is believed to have been because of a condition known as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, a complication from fertility medication.

At least three of the babies could have been saved had Kushwawa and her husband undergone selective reduction after learning they were pregnant with 10 children. 

Octomom, Nadya Suleman, currently holds the Guinness World Record for most children surviving in a single birth.
