- Mariam Nabatanzi has a rare genetic condition and not even birth control pills could hinder her from having children
- Doctors have finally orchestrated a plan to stop the world's most fertile woman from having children
- Nabatanzi had her first set of twins at 12 years old and now at the age of 36 she has a whopping 44 children
African families are typically large with an average couple having five to six children, but for Mariam Nabatanzi, her situation is peculiar as at the age of 36, she has birthed 44 children.
Fortunately, she can now breathe a sigh of relief as doctors have finally found a way out of her condition, which is technically a rare genetic condition characterised by colossal ovaries.
According to the Mirror, Mariam began having children at the age of 12 and since then, the babies kept coming in multiples.
"I had 23 children by the time I was 25 and I remember desperately begging the doctors to help me stop having any more kids. They couldn't find a solution for me," Mariam said.
The doctors are now planning to remove her uterus as the solution to stop conception.
Her massive family has entangled her in a financial crisis, especially after her husband abandoned her.
Her 44 children live in poor conditions in a tiny house, with some sharing beds and mattresses and others sleeping on the floor.
She uses 25kg of maize flour every day to feed the humongous family which she can barely afford with a meagre income from her hairdressing occupation.
Despite the struggle, including rejection from her family and especially her husband, she is optimistic her children will have the best of life.
