I feel fortunate, privileged, and ecstatic that small me has five lucky children now, ten years after my first pair of twins.
God, this makes me so happy that I want to inspire every woman to have faith in me and wait for many miracles. My happiness is boundless. God is the child of my advanced age. I had two boys when I was 30, and I currently have one of each at 40. Thank you, Almighty Father.
Margaretha is an African woman from the Yorba tribe. A joyous occasion is a baby’s birth. It is frequently honored and lamented. Twice births had a significant fatality rate in the Yorba tribe, which originated in Nigeria. Twists, or the birth of two offspring from the same pregnancy, are frequently thought of as unique despite being a reasonably common phenotype.
The birth rate of twins varies by region and country around the world. The lowest rates are found in Latin America and Southeast Asia, where there are only about 9 sets of twins for every 1,000 births.
In Europe, the ratio is around 16 twins per 1,000 births, but in the United States, it is over 33 twins per 1,000 births. This number increases to around 18 to 30 sets of twins for every 1,000 births in central Africa. The Yorba people of southwest Nigeria, on the other hand, have the greatest number of twin births worldwide—about 50 sets of twins are born for every 1,000 live births.
As of the Jewish New Year, two individuals, in particular, seem to hold the record for the most multiple births worldwide.
Igbo Ora, a small agricultural town 80 kilometers outside Lagos, is unquestionably the world’s twin capital: According to “co-confirmed estimations from the tow,” it has 158 sets of twins for every 1,000 live births.
Visitors are greeted with a huge plinth that proudly proclaims its reputation as “the lad of twins” at the entrance to the tow.
Although there is no empirical explanation for the high rate of twin births in the two, around Yorbalad, fertility experts say a possible explanation for the rate of multiple births in the region may lie in the presence of a particular variety of yam that contains an at-rate phytoestrogen thought to stimulate a woman’s ovaries to release eggs from each side.
However, the natives and residents of Igbo Ora claim that their basic food, which consists of yam and okra leaves, is the cause of their multiple births. A community leader stated in an interview from 2013 that “We eat a lot of the okra leaf or Ilasa sop. We consume a lot of yam, and these diets result in multiple births.
In Igbo Ora, Oyo State, it was difficult to approach a house without coming across some twins. The Idigees believe that an okra leaf child, known locally as ewe ilasa, has the power to make women who consume it give birth to twins. This article was written by Taiwo Abiod, who visited the place.
