Ugandan mum

Mum of 44 kids banned from having more children

Mariam Nabatanzi, 39, was married off at the age of 12, delivering twins a year later.

After her first children, Nabatanzi gave birth to five more sets of twins, four sets of triplets and five sets of quadruplets due to her abnormally large ovaries.

The 39-year-old was abandoned by her husband three years ago, leaving her as the sole carer of her surviving 38 children.
