Anju Kushwawa, a 28-year old woman in Madhya Pradesh, India has set a (tragic) world record by miscarrying 10 babies in one night after suffering complications from "ovarian hyperstimulation sydrome (a side effect from fertility drugs). She was 12 months pregnant at the time of her loss.
"It appears that she was not given any regular follow-ups to to her pregnancy following in-vitro fertilization, according to senior gynecologist Dr. Sumitra Yadav. "Had there been, at least three of the infants could have survived by reducing the number of fetuses in her uterus."
While other women have become pregnant with multiple babies as a result of IVF treatments, including a 35-year old woman who had 15 surgically removed from her womb by Roman doctors in 1971, Nadya Suleman of the US still holds the world record for the "most surviving children in a single delivery," after giving birth to six boys and two girls at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Bellflower, CA on January 26, 2009.
