The Most Babies in One Birth – Famous Firsts

Written by: Lindsay Shugerman

June 22, 2008
Filed Under Parenting 


The advent of fertility drugs and in vitro has created families where once there was only a dream.  Twins and even triplets have become commonplace, as multiple implants typically mean multiple babies.  But even in these days of daily fertility miracles, the really big multiples, dubbed Super Twins, still make the news.  So what are the records for the most babies in one birth?

lhjseptuplets1.jpglhjseptuplets1.jpgSeventh Heaven

The first known surviving set of healthy septuplets was born in the U.S. to the McCaugheys in November of 1997.  The four boys and three girls ranged in size from a relatively healthy 3 pounds 4 ounces to only 15 ounces.  Although several of the babies experienced medical challenges, and two have cerebral palsy, all seven not only survived but thrived.  Ironically, Joel, the tiniest of the babies, does not have lasting medical issues.

Eight is Enough

In 1998, the U.S.’s first set of octuplets was born in Houston, Texas.  The first of the Chukwu Octuplets arrived on December 8, nearly 15 weeks premature, and weighed 1 pound, 6 ounces.  The remainder of the babies were delivered about two weeks later by Caesarean section.  Birth weights ranged from 2 pounds, 2 ounces to 10.3 ounces.  The tiniest of them, a girl, lived for only one week after birth.  The rest of the babies thrived, and were at last report in 2005 happy and healthy children.

Beyond Survival: Nonuplets and Beyond

In 1999 a Malaysian mother gave birth to nine living babies, officially the most babies in one birth..  Sadly, none of the 5 boys and 4 girls survived beyond 6 hours.  An earlier nonutuplet pregnancy in Australia had resulted in two still borns.  Six babies died shortly after birth. One baby, a boy, survived for 6 days.  

The world record for a natural pregnancy (without fertility treatment) is held by an Argentinean woman, who was pregnant with 12 babies.  Unfortunately, the pregnancy was lost before any of the babies were viable.
The official record for the most babies in a pregnancy (although not the most babies in one birth) was set in 1971, when an Italian woman on fertility treatment conceived 15 babies.  None of the 10 girls or 5 boys survived to birth.

Not All is Rosy in Multiple Births

While family need not fear a repeat of the tragedy of the Dionne Quintuplets, (born in 1934, then taken by the Canadian government and displayed as a kind of living museum exhibit), there are other challenges with multiple births.  Medical professionals are looking at the health issues these pregnancies bring, including prematurity, lifelong medical concerns, and the severe health risks to the mother.  Techniques are being developed to reduce the need for multiple implants which will hopefully reduce the number of large multiple births.

    this is weird….

    did it hurt

    holly shit

  2. Shannon on September 19th, 2008 10:18 pm

    I believe that there is a reason that we can only have theses many children at one time – should we do something just because we can? The implications are numerous, and obvious, but science needs to police itself. Sometimes, it is better to restrain ourselves and think before we act.

  3. Crystal on November 3rd, 2008 1:22 pm


    it sounds like it hurt…….i would have died when they told me i was pregant with 15!!!

  10. hollie herschler on January 27th, 2009 11:27 am

    thats fucking crazy i have always wanted a set of triplets thats all i could ever think of handling good luck matthew with those eleven your wife is having thts amazing i wish you the best of luck i hope they all do very well.

  11. Unknown on January 27th, 2009 10:11 pm

    Mathew, Now is the time for you and your wife to stop thinking about you and start thinking about your kids… You will be lucky if ANY survive, and the ones that do may have really bad medical problems in the future… Could you live with yourself knowning that because of your choises you caused these problems for your children?? Go to the hospital and get ridd of 8, that will leave you with 3, don’t be greedy and give your babies the best chance at this life cos they only get one!

  12. Jennie on February 2nd, 2009 1:02 am

    How can you honestly tell someone to go get rid of their children? God has a reason behind why she is pregnant with 11, and not 3. If you had 11 children would you go give 8 of them up for adoption just because you had to many? I don’t think so. It’s her body and their decision. Don’t try to tell them what’s best for them.

  13. Katie on February 2nd, 2009 8:19 pm

    There is a reason God gave her those babies. God will decide how many she should take home with her.

  14. Unknown on February 2nd, 2009 8:30 pm

    Give up on your GOD shit!!! Its not about giving children up for adoption, cos if you act soon enough then there will be no babies to give away!!! At least only keeping 3 will give the babies some bloody chance of living, it’s called greed!!! No one needs that many children when so many die due to this reason and its not fair on the little ones to let them form into babies then they have to die or suffer for the rest of their lives because there were too many babies and not enough nutrients, That is the real Killing of it all! And if it there decision and they didn’t want input they wouldn’t have asked for help or answers..! Welcome to the free world of speech, I’ll say what i want to say!

  15. Kesdfhdjf Uasdjfhdskf on February 3rd, 2009 12:30 am


    enough is enough

  16. amira on February 7th, 2009 9:18 pm

    are you serious??? get rid of 8 and keep 3?? the chances of survival are slim but there is a chance!! you are saying give up on God yet you want to play God by deciding how many and which babies to keep alive. good luck to mathew and your 11 babies wish you all the best

  17. Jaz on February 9th, 2009 10:40 am

    HOW CAN YOU GIVE ADVICE THAT WOULD CAUSE THE DEATH OF ANYONE ( INTENIONALLY). I f you read what he wrote he didn’t ask you what should he do )he stated, (but even so i am wonder will unborn babie have a good chance surviving?) How did you come up with the get rid of 8 why not 7,6,5 are all but 1. I was always told if you can’t say something nice then don’t say anything. I hope no one in your family ever get told what you told someone eles to do. God word say he holds us responsible far what we tell someone to do and it lead them from the word of God. Please all of you give your heart if you haven’t to God,ask him to come into your heart today. “Praise God all the day long”

  18. nathalie on February 11th, 2009 5:22 pm

    People needs to mind there own is they are happy then let is be we should pray for this baby health and good luck you will be in my prayer.

  19. ......... on February 12th, 2009 12:48 pm

    I think that guy is right. Those 11 babies really have a very slim chance of surviving. A woman is not capable of hold 11 babies. I’m not saying get rid of any, but try to think about the babies and the woman that is carrying them. They need room to grow and a woman can only get so big. There are so many things that can happen during pregnancy especially with 11 babies. Those babies, if they survive, will have a life long of suffering including the parents. A woman is just not equipped to hold that many babies, but nature will take its course and allow whatever happens to happen.

  20. Alotta Payne on February 14th, 2009 5:33 pm

    Having more than one baby inside you is oh so well but you don;t just have to think about the safety and survival issue. You need to consider the emotional and financial problems that comes with juggling two many babies the same age at once. If you have a great support network, that’s fine but you cannot get a pushchair for more than 4 babies at a time. And what about cars, the most seats I’ve seen is 9.

    Then there’s the chance of them becoming a ‘freak show’ and spending their lives in the public eye. Where’s the fairness in this and where does it end?

  21. Vilma on February 16th, 2009 6:11 pm

    all of ya’ll shut the fuck up and chill let her make her own choices

    she doesn’t need ya’ll commenting a fucking website dumbasses I swear

    its not like she is going to actaully get the stupied comments

  22. Robin on March 15th, 2009 11:01 am

    I think Matthew is full of crap.

  23. Cyril on April 2nd, 2009 2:01 am

    I think matthew is full of crap too,

  24. Tara on April 15th, 2009 4:56 pm

    Do we all really believe this is even true?

  25. Haley on April 24th, 2009 12:33 pm

    Ok…even if this guy is lying, nobody has any right to tell him what to do with his life. It is his decision! I do agree that if a woman is pregnant with 11 babies that there is a really high chance that she or the babies aren’t going to make it. Soon I will be studying to become an OB/GYN soon, but I don’t believe that you should choose one baby over the other. If that was even possible, it would be a very hard decision, and nobody should be telling anybody what to do when it comes to their own childrens lives! It isnb’t anybody elses decision!

  26. Sam on May 11th, 2009 3:22 pm

    Really there is no need to comment on this issue but I’m going to anyways. If Mathew and his wife had intentionally been fertilizied to have so many children they’d be wrong. However, God has placed those babies into her stomach for a reason, whatever that reason may be. Whether it is to teach a new generation about possibilites or something else, he has a plan. No one is right to tell them to give up any of those babies. They have the right to decide whether or not they want to take the risk or have a safer pregnancy. And nobody can tell them otherwise.

    You should all mind your own business and get back to your lives, stop worrying about everyone elses! That is the problem with society these days, everyone is so worried about their neighbors yard when their own needs cut.

  27. Sam on May 11th, 2009 3:25 pm

    I’d also like to point out that it was in 1971, when the Italian woman (on fertility treatment!) conceived 15 babies and they were all lost. We have grown much in technoledgy AND knowledge over the years. So the babies have a much better chance at survival than those in the stories on this site.

  28. Lindsey on May 26th, 2009 11:14 pm

    The only reason I am not sure if I believe Mathew or not is because it is so rare to have so many children at once. I mean you look at jon and kate gosselin, they only had six and nadia seulmen (spelling?) and she had eight and both families where ALL OVER the news. So if this girl was really pregnant with 11 Im sure she would have been on the news by now. As soon as the doctor detected 11 babies I know word would have gotten around and everyone would know about this by now. I do not however have an opinion about keeping or not keeping the babies because I understand its wrong to take a life but I would also want my children to have a chance of survival. I dont know what I would do in that situation so who am I to criticize.

  29. Cassie on June 8th, 2009 4:35 pm

    Okay guys I am not sure that I believe Matthew either because I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and most doctors will not do an ultrasound on a pregnant person until they are 18 – 21 weeks. The only way you would have an ultrasound at 1 month pregnant is if she went to the hospital complaining of symptoms that sounded like a possibility of being pregnant. Most people dont even find out that they are pregnant until they are around 6-7 weeks due to the missing period that would not occur until a month later.

  30. Unknown on June 8th, 2009 10:05 pm

    Ok, keep going on about god, Have you seen him? does he speak to you? Can you feel him? If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, you need professional help! To the Wannabe OBGYN… IT IS POSSIBLE TO TERMINATE SOME AND LEAVE SOME! Yes you are right, They all might survive, But with Downsyndrome, Autisim, Spinabifita, Just to name a few ‘COMMON’ complications while there is only one baby. IF YOU CAN LIVE WITH YOURSELF KNOWING YOU COULD HAVE HAVE 3 BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY CHILDREN BUT WERE GREEDY AND KEPT 11, SHAME ON YOU. YOU TRY LIVING AS A PRISONER IN A DISABLED BODY, THEN TELL ME YOU WANT THAT FOR YOU KIDS!!! BY THE WAY, THERE IS NO NATURAL CONCEPTION OF MORE THEN 3 BABIES AT ONE TIME, THERE IS ONLY MEDICAL AIDS AFTER THAT.


  31. beck on June 10th, 2009 6:53 am

    are you kidding only 2 times in history were natural triplets???? Oh come on I personally know 5 sets of natural identical triplets. It happens more often than you would think. One I personally know had 3 pregnancies a single,one set of triplets and a set of twins all naturally. Things happen for a reason dont criticise someone you dont know anything about.

  32. sarah on July 5th, 2009 1:00 am

    To Unknown:

    John and Kate Gosselin’s 6 kids were a natural set of multiples if i remember correctly….

    and is there a way to contact someone who has commented here when their name isn’t a blue link?

  33. Unknown on July 6th, 2009 8:32 pm

    Depends who you want to contact.

  34. Michaela on July 29th, 2009 11:18 am

    If Matthew and his wife where trying for a family the hospital will automatically do a pregnancy test and a scan if the euquipment is available to see how far along on the pregnancy is. Especially if your young or iftheir is a suspected multiple pregnancy. Also a woman who is expecting 11 childre at onl 4 weeks would have alot of hgc hormone so they maybe though it was a single pregnancy in a further stage. Eveythign is possible. A lady in Italy gave birth to 13 children in 1989 but lost all of them within 3 months. But she had them! And enjoyed them and had memories of them . Also after having them she never went on to ahve anymore children. And A lady in america has 8 naturally conceived children who are now 13!!!!! and healthy… so it is possible. Dogs are smaller mammals than us and they can have loads of babies at once. If it wasnt natrual or possible or wanted. It would nto work and would not happen

  35. Bobby on August 26th, 2009 4:46 pm

    To Sarah: All of the Gosslin’s children, from both her pregnancies, were conceived using fertility treatments. The sextuplets started as septuplets, but she lost one. She couldn’t have children on her own.

    As for June 8 Unknown…definitly full of it. I personally know a set of identical quadruplets. And for every other birth…Was the above article not even read?

    You can go to the CDC’s websight and get the reported multiple birth statistics, 80% of which were conceived using

    To Cassie, it’s standard in the hospital I go to for the first ultrasound to be at around 10 weeks (as it’s the only way to truly confirm a pregnancy). I also know dozens of women who get a confirmation ultrasond at their first appointment after the missed period (at around 6 weeks). It really depends on what the insurance company is willing to pay for. If “Mathew’s” wife conceived due to IVF they count weeks from the moment of conception/implantation, 2 weeks later than those who conceive naturally, that being 6 weeks to a normal woman. So it is likely for a woman who is considered one month pregnant to get an ultrasound.

    But, yeah Mathew is full of it. I’m suprised it took so long for people to start pointing that out.

  36. Bobby on August 26th, 2009 4:52 pm

    …my last message got partially diappeared. Let me finish CDC statement:

    80% of which were conceived using modern medicine, that being 20% of all multiple births were conceived naturally.

  37. anonyomous on October 3rd, 2009 11:04 pm

    there is a process called selective abortion where in multiple pregnancy that you can abort so many of the babies so the others will have a better chance at survival…but i think it is wrong…and i do not recommend it and i dont know how a “mother” would abort her own child if she tryed so hard to get pregnant…and if someone doesn’t want a child then use protection..

  38. Sigfrid on November 22nd, 2009 3:17 pm

    Please i need to get details of the people which were born on 1991 febr 15.

  39. Ashley on December 1st, 2009 7:24 pm

    I think it’s up to the parents what they want to do!If they want to take the risk then let them!!Everything happens for a reason!!! Oh and to Cassie on June 8th I got my first ultra-sound at 5 weeks! You get your first ultra-sound when you find out your pregnant! The first ultra-sound is how they find out when you’re due date is. You get another ultra-sound at 20 weeks for a half-way there check up on the babie and to know what you’re having if you want to find out!!

  40. mommy_of_3 on January 7th, 2010 10:58 pm

    I just wanted to point out that yes natural multipul births of three or more are possible my 3 babies are living proof. i am a 19 year old mother. Although i didnt know i was pregnant with three untill i was 28 weeks along. they never saw baby c because he was behind his brothers. I was one of the lucky ones and none of my children have any medical problems. though the stres is behind my level i love them with all my heart and had i known there were three i would never of wanted to lose any of them. yes there were alot of complications. but we made it. and now alekzandar, aiden, and airein are all healthy and they will be turning 4 in june.

  41. janette on January 15th, 2010 12:22 am

    I think that having a baby is a blessing even when you have one.

  42. Ian on January 20th, 2010 11:10 pm

    That is really sad that you have 15 kids just so they would die. I feel so sorry for the mom. I mean Jesus, that’s horrible

  44. madonna on January 27th, 2010 7:21 am

  49. WOW! Mexico is taking over america on April 4th, 2010 5:42 pm

    Just want to say, this guy asking this question sounds like he doesn’t speak english very well. Not to be unjust or racist in anyway, but isn’t this post in america? Just wondered , because I think we have enough americans living off the system already. We probably don’t need any illegal aliens moving into the country so they can get welfare and a government check for these babies that they probably have no experience taking care of anyway. And do you make a million dollars a year because the average cost of a abnormal pregnancy with a baby that needs medical attention for months at a time is around a million dollars, so we the tax payers need to dish out another 11 million for some more people that don’t even do there part in this country as it already is. I wouldn’t think that anyone in the world would be thinking about having children in times like these. Our economy is so bad people, and it’s like you don’t care because you are probably getting all of your bills payed for by the government. What is wrong with you people. You shouldn’t even think about having children unless you have the meens to take care of them , and lots of savings, for what could happen. And people in this country are mad about healthcare. This is why healthcare is costing so much, everyone has to make up the difference. Get a job people, if there are any left! Good luck to the 25 tent camps in San diego alone. They wish they could just take a shower. But we are spending 720 million dollars a day on a war. WAKE UP AMERICA> it is time to get our country back! Yeah! Let’s have more babies, when we can’t even take care of the ones we already have. This is so sad. And I am praying for you and I hope these children turn out fine. But let’s learn from the mistakes that others have made in the past. And know that we can do something about the future. People really can’t handle taking care of more than 4 children if you want them to have a structured life. They need individual discipline. Think about the message we are sending to the generation. We are there example. We are leaving them a big mess to clean up. God help us all.

  50. Laura on April 19th, 2010 12:49 pm

    REALLY??? Mexico taking over America… America is much bigger than just the USA, America spans from south of Chile to Canada and yes u are coming across as racist. I know many fellow “americans” that don’t know how to spell and the were born in the US.

  51. Jesus loves YOU on April 25th, 2010 3:02 pm

    I just wanted to say something. This has nothing to do with this story or the conversation taking place in the comments. But I believe that I have not had the feeling to comment what is needed to be said for no reason. I believe there is someone out there right now who is reading this… And they need to hear it. This is it: Jesus loves you and no matter what you are facing, He can help you overcome it. He has already proved His love in my life, and I know that if YOU who are reading this seek Him, you will find Him. He loves YOU with a passion, and has died and rose again for you. He is the only one that can help you with what’s going on right now. No amount of fame, fortune, alchohal, partying, (anything, you name it) can bring you to true joy. You can keep chasing all this stuff, but eventually (and I can guarentee you this…) you will come to a conclusion that you can’t live this life the way it’s going. But with Jesus, you can have the most amazing life… And it will be the best descion you ever made. Why? Because He is the only One who an fufill that void in your life. Take the challenge. If you want to know more about Him, you can check out this book… It’s called the bible. Go to psalms, Luke, Romans, Matthew (anywhere in that book). If you don’t have a bible, you can check out It’s the bible on the computer! :)

    If anything, don’t walk away from this oppurtunity to accept Jesus, who is the only One who can help. Simply say, “Jesus, I’m sorry for trying to live life on my own. I realize I need you. I invite you into my heart to be my Lord and Savior. Amen”. Now, you are a new creation… And I promise youthat although you may run into difficulties… Keep seeking God because He will he right beside you as you go through life.

    To whoever is reading this right now… Always know that Jesus loves you. It may seem like He isn’t there for you… But He is faithful and His word declares He WILL perfect that which concerns you! Whenever you are in trouble, say the name of Jesus. Say it aloud and believe that He will help you through everything… Because I promise He will. Say His name when you can’t call anyone for help… And He will be there.

  52. Also... on April 25th, 2010 3:09 pm

    This is the same person who commented that last comment. If you are feeling doubt right now because you feel you have done to many bad things in your life… And that you are not worthy… That is a lie. You could have done the worst of the worst… But Jesus is loving and will forgive you. He dies for your addicitions, pain, rebellion, suffering to be put to an end. Hes already saved millions like you… And I know some of them personally. They say that they felt empty when they were doing drugs, alochal (you name it…) but they went back to t because it was the only way out for them. They were depressed… Even if others didn’t always see it. Does that sound familiar? Jesus is the only way out of this… I promise it’s the best descion you an make. Jesus died for you… And if you were the only human on this earth… He still would have died for you. That’s how loved and worthy you are to Him. Don’t ever think you aren’t worthy enough. Jesu loves you more than ANYTHING.

  53. james on April 26th, 2010 6:22 am

    dear Customer & friend,

    Pls note if you want baby you can take I or 1 pls d’not take 1 or more than you wife,

    in frucher u will be happy, with baby,

    pls try to do in oneonly,

  54. Nicole on June 3rd, 2010 8:46 pm

    I believe that if I were to have 11 babies, I would carry all of them unless the doctors were 100% sure that I would die. Maybe even then I would try. I also believe that this is all true, the huge numbers of babies I mean. Matthew – I wish your wife, yourself, and the babies all the best of luck! Do what you two decide is what best for yourselves, don’t let anyelses opinion change yours.


  55. Dusty on June 15th, 2010 9:10 pm

    I wish I could just have one I dont have the money to try the ivf I wish I did tho cause I cant even carry one….. I am 27 and no kids I have been pregnant three times and have lost them all in the first trimester so maybe if I could do it then maybe at least one would survive….. If anyone has any ideas of what I could do that is not expensive please email it to me….. thank you

  56. maybeyesmaybeno on August 2nd, 2010 5:46 pm

    11 babies is a lot of kids. When you look at your life, the life of your wife, and your unborn children you’re faced with a decision. Based on facts all eleven of them will not survive. It’s impossible. As far as God goes I’m a Christian, and I’m against abortion, but this isn’t about God right now. You kind of took God out of the process when you chose to bring science into things in the first place. I’m not saying what you did was right or wrong. I’m only saying there is a reason women’s bodies can’t handle that many babies.

    My advice (whether asked for or not) is to look into your heart when you make any decisions. Every one that you make is going to be hard and terrifying, but look at what you know you feel is right. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. It’s your choice in the end, and you and your wife will have to live with whatever you decide. Do what you have to do with a clear conscience.

    May God Bless You, Your Wife, and Most of All Your Children.

    The REASON they are there are fertility drugs and messing with nature in the first place.. Thats why its all complicated. Its a hard issue and the parents should do what their hearts tell them to do. Pray that god will help you to make the right decision. Then make it!!!!!!

    Thats all you can do. Good luck xx

    u all MATHEWsss….never even think of getting rid of the child in womb…Its the Lord who granted you with all these children…it s not without his knowledge it all happened…He will show you some way to bring up them..sometimes it might happen that God bless you immensly with one among the 11 whom you plan of killing in the womb itself…

    i think this is sick and twisted that women are purposly killing babies just so they can have 15 min of fame why would you want to attempt hving ten to fifteen kids at once knowing it will either kill the babies or make them live a complicated life i think these women doing these things are murderers cause you alreay know you cant carry all these babies this is sick and twisted that women do this and kill babies just to have thier name posted some where if you are that bored take up a hobby and quit killing babies

    Okay, all of you have different opions. If I had 15 babies or however many, i would keep them all. i know some people would give them up for adoption or only keep a few of them. It’s completely natural to give up the smallest, weakest, deformed, and disabled ones. I mean we see all other animals do it, some even eat their babies! But, of course, humans dont eat their babies… What I’m trying to say is that it’s not selfish to keep your own babies, it’s not evil to give away the messed up ones, it’s not evil to cut of life support on a child that would have problems all their lives. It’s just natural. Because, if we weren’t so advanced, the sick ones would die, the premature ones would be left to die, and the hungry ones would eat eachother.

    I have read all of these posts and I can’t believe how ignorant so many people seem to be! I had IVF transfer last week (5 days ago). I had a pregnancy test yesterday and it came back positive. I had a scan, which showed 5 babies. There is no way that I can carry 5 babies and there is no way that my husband I can could afford 5 new babies. We already have 3 children. I wouldn’t even like to try! I will be having a reduction of 3, next week. There is always a risk of multiple births with IVF, which my doc prepared us for and we knew that we may have to have a reduction, to ensure my safety and that of my unborn babies. Any woman who even tries to have ridiculous numbers of babies is either insane or looking for attention!

    I would be happy to have a least one , for those of you fighting overy how many babies etc, ,most of us on here just want to have a baby, trick of the draw puts you in a much more complicated situation and no matter what , choices have to be made, and some of them are very hard and painful, but they must be made, as long as your intentions are good and honest , then its all right. Some of us try for years with no luck, some of us get lucky but lose them along the way, the pain is still there , the loss is felt, no mother who goes through so much trouble to fall pregnant , will not feel pain when there is loss, be it one or all, IVF is not easy, it is very difficult , for those of you who pass your comments without going through any of this, all we want to do , is have a baby we can love and call our own, IVF is painful, the medication has horrible side effects, the probing and needles and drugs is seems never ending, all you can do , is hope and pray that this better work, and when it does, you are over the moon, nothing can go wrong now, and when that light is put out before you get to even hold your baby, you feel like your life is just not blessed, the pain you feel cannot be explained, it takes a loving spouse to help and the both of you grieve together, and a year later, you want to try again…..some of us have left things up to God for 10 years and counting and it has not happened naturally, God helps those who help themselves, God uses Doctors as his hands, whatever choice you decide to follow, be it IVF or wait on end, God willing it will happen or not, but at least you tried …..
