Bobbie McCaughey is the mother who holds the record for the most surviving children from a single birth. She gave birth to the first set of surviving septuplets - 4 boys and 3 girls on November 19, 1997, at the University Hospital, Iowa, US. Conceived by in vitro fertilization, the babies were delivered after 31 weeks by caesarean in the space of 16 minutes. The babies are named Kenneth, Nathaniel, Brandon, Joel, Kelsey, Natalie and Alexis.
The record of the number of children born to one mother is 69. It took place about 300 years ago in Russia. She had 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets (4). Only 2 children died early (during infancy). Just take a second and think about that. It was 300 years ago. Think about the amount of assistance provided. Here's the math: 16x2=32, 7x3=21, and 4x4=16

+21 +16

Eve, the wife of Adam. She had allegedly about a 1000 children or more, which is why she is called "the Mother of all Living".
And yes, she did exist, and so did Adam and everyone else recorded in the Bible.
LOL at that above answer, there is no proof the bible is even real.
but that's not what were here to discuss
I think, according to my memory and the guiness book of record, there was a woman in an undeveloped world who gave birth to 67 children in 45 years. she had something like 6 sets of triplets 12 sets of twins etc.
the record for the most babies in one pregnancy goes to a couple who had 8 babies in one pregnancy 6 girls and 2 boys - born to a Nigerian/American couple in houstin in 1998
UMMMM yes the bible wuz real
but Adam and Eve were a metaphor to explain evolution to people with no Scientific backround. But there was woman who had about70 offspring. She was in bed all the time and her stomach was unbelievably stretched out (not all of the children were alive when they were born, about a dozen were stillborn). She also had multiple sets of Multiples! Just my two cents. If you guys think this answer was reliable, could you go to my page and give me some trust points? Thanks!
The number is 69! A Russian peasent gave birth to 69 children, 16 sets of twin, 7 triplets, and 4 quadruplets. It was a long time ago from 1725-1765 but a gross accomplishment. Info from Random Facts app Adam Debreczeni.
the most births was made by the wife of Feodor Vassilyev, in Russia, 1700s. She gave birth to 69 children in 27 confinements, with 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets. Two of her children died in infancy.
The greatest recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev (Russia). In 27 pregnancies between 1725 and 1765 she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets. Only two of the children failed to survive their infancy. The mother also holds the records for giving birth to the most sets of twins and the most sets of quadruplets.
The wife of Feodor Vassilyev gave birth to 69 children over a total of 27 pregnancies between 1725 and 1765.
I'm not sure if this would be the highest, but my neighbor has had 48 pregnancies. Unfortunately, only 41 of them have been carried to completion.
THE greatest recorded number of children born to one mother in the world, according to the Guinness 2004 world records is 69. In 27 pregnancies, the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev of Russia gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.

This was in the 17 Century. Only two of her children died at infancy. She also holds the world record for giving birth to the most sets of twins and sets of quadruplets.

Similarly, the highest medically recorded number of children born at a single birth is nine to Geraldine Brodrick of Australia. None of the children (five boys, two stillborn and four girls) lived for more than six days. This was way back in 1971.

But the most children delivered at a single birth to survive are a set of septuplets (four boys and three girls.

Their mother, Bobbie McCaughey gave birth in 1997 at the University hospital, Lowa inUnited State of America.

The longest interval between the births of two children to the same mother is 41 years. Elizabeth Ann Buttle of the United Kingdom produced her daughter Belinda in 1956 and rested for 41 years before giving birth to Joseph in 1997.

But among men, Guinness recorded Moulay Ismail, the last Sharifian Emperor, as the world record for fathering 525 sons, 342 daughters by 1703.
I believe it was to a Russian woman in Siberia at the start of the twentieth century. Over her period of life, she had 90 odd children. Most were twins, triplets and maybe even quadruplets.
It's really hard to fathom, but a woman in Russia gave birth to 69 children in the 1700s. She holds the record for the largest number of children born to one mother. The wife of Feodor Vassilyev gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets between 1725 and 1765. 67 of them survived infancy.
