A woman in India miscarried 10 babies in one night this week in what's being called a new medical record.

Anju Kushwaha, 28, delivered nine of the babies late Sunday night before she arrived at a hospital in Madhya Pradesh, where she delivered the 10th, the Times of India reported.

All of the babies had died at 12 weeks, doctors revealed Monday.

According to the Business Standard, doctors said the miscarriages followed a complication from fertility treatments.

"It seems that that there was no regular follow-up of her pregnancy after (in vitro fertilization)," Dr. Sumitra Yadav, a senior gynecologist, told the Times. "At least three offspring could have been saved by reducing the pregnancy."
