South African Woman Appeals for Help After Giving Birth To Ten Babies
A South African woman who gave birth to 10 babies, has appealed for help to raise the decuplets, saying she can’t afford the financial and emotional demands.
Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, gave birth to her decuplets at a hospital in Pretoria on Monday night, breaking a record held by Malian Halima Cissé, who gave birth to nine children (nonuplets) in Morocco last month.
Her seven boys and three girls were two more than the eight children that doctors had earlier detected during the medical scans.
In an exclusive interview with the Pretoria News at her family home in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, the retail store manager said she won’t be able to return to work due to her new situation.
According to South Africa base news report IOL , The Pretoria News spoke to Sithole and her husband Tebogo Tsotetsi last month, but the publication of the story was delayed due to the couple’s concerns for safety and cultural reasons. They requested that the interview be published after the birth of the children
