For 20 years, Nakato Honorata struggled to conceive, and nothing happened, but the woman never gave up.
In a recent report by NTV, Mwasuze Mutya Honorata told Faridah Nakazibwe that she finally conceived through an assisted method called In vitro fertilization (IVF).
IVF is a medical procedure where an egg is removed from a woman's body, fertilised and returned to her body to grow and develop.
Five out of six eggs survived
To increase her chances of getting pregnant, the doctor suggested they put six eggs in the hope that 1 or 2 of them would survive.

However, all of them survived except one, so she ended up with 5 children!
The mom was pregnant; her doctors advised her to halt her teaching job and stay home. The weight of the pregnancy was too much; she could not perform house chores or even bathe herself.
The elated Ugandan mom is now celebrating her kids' third birthday, in what, to her, seems like a dream come true.
Sold land to afford treatment
She says she even did not have enough money for the treatment, but because she wanted to be a mother so badly, she ended up selling her land to afford it.
Now she has three girls and two boys named; Rodney, Raymond, Rowena, Rhoda and Racheal.
After 18 years, a miracle happened
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that an unnamed Nigerian woman was celebrated online after she gave birth to triplets.
According to @temilolasobola on Instagram, the woman waited for 18 years to have kids. In the video shared by the same Instagram user, she held her babies in both hands as people surrounded her.
The new mother sat as people tried to take shots of her at a place that looks like a church. With the number of church members around, it probably was a child dedication ceremony going on.
