Woman Miscarries 10 Babies in One Night

Earlier this week, a 28-year-old woman named Anju Kushwaha in Madhya Pradesh, India miscarried 10 babies in one night.

Doctors are saying It appears fertility drugs may have contributed to Kushwaha’s conception and unusually high multiple pregnancy. They suspect the miscarriages followed ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome – a complication from fertility medication.

It’s likely that Kushwaha didn’t receive any follow-up care after her in-vitro fertilization.  Dr. Sumitra Yaday, a senior gynecologist told one Indian news paper that “At least three offspring could have been saved by reducing the pregnancy.”

Indians are calling this case a medical record.  And, while the birth of 10 children at once is rare, there have been other reported cases of doctors delivering a high number of babies in a single delivery.  A doctor in Rome claimed to have removed 15 babies from the womb of a 35-year-old woman in 1971.  And here in the United States, the “Octomom” – Nadya Suleman delivered 8 healthy babies in 2009.
