I checked in Guiness book of records and found out that the greatest (officially recorded) number of children produced by one mother is 69.  She was the 1st wife (out of 2 wives) of Feodor Vassilyev (1707-1782), a peasant from Shuya (a village located some 150 miles east of Moscow).  In 27 confinements she gave birth to: 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets.  The children, were born in the period between 1725 to 1765.

I read an article about a woman that gave birth to some 46 children (including several twins and several sets of triplets).  The article claimed that she is the world's record.  That woman is from south-America (I am not sure but I think it's Peru).  They are very poor farmers (don't know to read / write).  I read that article some 4-5 years ago at that time she was in her late 40's.  I'll try to find more detales, if I find I'll provide it.

Wow!!! All i can say is ouch. I know that there is a show & i think the family has like 6 or kids it is the same channel w/ the t.V. Show small people big world anyway good luck 2 finding ur answer

the best gift in life is life itself.

I am not sure of the record on this one, but I know that my great grandmother was pregnant with 12 fetus's and out of one of them only 1 boy survived.  So that should give you at least a number to start with.

There is a T.V. show called 18 children & counting... Pretty crazy I say. But the couple on the show seem to handle ALL of them just fine.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, 69. The first wife of Feodor Vassilyev (her name apparently is unknown), a peasant from the Russian village of Shulya, was pregnant 27 times. She gave birth to 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets.
