I heard about the story and was amazed that even with today's technology they weren't able to see all 9 babies, I can imagine the dad passing out when they kept on bringing out more babies!:-) hugs jan xx

Having 7 babies would be a challenge but to find 2 more 'hiding' when she was having the caesarean must have been such a shock!:-) hugs jan xx
