Circulating message claims that a woman in India has just broken the world record after giving birth to eleven babies at once. The message includes a photograph depicting eleven babies with a medical team.
The claims in the message are false. One woman did not give birth to all eleven babies as claimed. The picture depicts eleven babies from different mothers born on the “unique date” 11/11/11 in Surat, India.
An Indian woman has just broken the world record after she gave birth to eleven babies at once. Congratulations 🙂

INDIA’S TEAM-11 ON 11-11-11…Hospital staff showing 11 babies born on unique date 11/11/11 in Surat on Friday.
11 LSCS deliveries at our 21st Century Hospital & Test Tube Baby Centre-Surat and more at Killa Pardi & Vapi (at Nadkarni Hospital & Test Tube Baby Centre & 21st Century Hospitals Pvt. Ltd.) on 11.11.11 and all Test Tube Babies…A world record.
And a Times of India news article provides more information, noting:
SURAT: A city-based In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) centre will undertake operations on 11 would-be mothers to schedule the births of their babies on Friday, 11-11-11.
About 30 women had conceived through IVF nine months ago at the 21st Century Hospital in the city. Of them, 11 couples wanted the delivery of their babies on the special date.
Moreover, there are no credible news or medical reports about such a multiple birth. Records indicate that the highest number of babies born to one mother at the one time is nine (Nonuplets). In 1971, a woman in Australia gave birth to 9 babies. None of the babies lived more than six days. Then, in 1999, a woman in Malaysia also birthed 9 babies, but all died within 6 hours of birth.
