Doctors have finally found a way to stop Mariam Nabatanzi, said to be the world’s most fertile woman from having more kids.
The 36-year-old Ugandan woman had a total of 44 children including four sets of twins, five sets of triplets and five quadruplets.
Nabatanzin, now a single mother who works as a tailor, hairdresser and herbalist to earn enough money to raise her 38 surviving children was reportedly sold into marriage at the age of 12 to a man who was 40-year-old at that time (28 years her senior). She had her first child one year later.
“Generally, I have tried to educate them. My dream is that my children go to school. They can lack anything (else), but they must go to school,”
Nabatazni revealed in a recent Al Jazeera documentary.
“I can’t say they are nagging because they are my children. I can’t say I will abandon them because they are my children and I love them,”
