25 year old mother has given birth to the first ever septuplets in Iraq.
The mother is said to be in good health after having the seven babies in a single natural birth, with all the children reportedly doing well.
The 25-year-old mother whose name has been withheld gave birth at a hospital in the Diyali Province of eastern Iraq in what is believed to be the first septuplet case in the Middle-Eastern country.
A spokesman for the local health department released a statement saying the mother, along with her six girls and one boy, are perfectly healthy.
Images show four of the tiny babies lying in a bed together. And other pictures show two of the newborns lying together shortly after the remarkable birth.
These children’s father Youssef Fadl said he and his wife had not been considering having more children but now have ten youngsters to look after.
