Wonder Woman: The baby making machine!

The first wife of Feodor Vassilyev, a peasant from Shuya, Russia who lived from 1707-1782 is the woman who holds the world record for the Most babies ever birthed by one woman, having had 69 babies! Out of the 69 born 67 of them survived through infancy.  Even crazier is the fact she only gave birth 27 times between 1725 and 1765!.... How'd that happen? --> She gave birth to sixteen pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets!! Talk about a lot of babies! Although there have been some doubts about the accuracy of this, it holds true enough that she still has the official spot in the Guinness Book of World Records! The mother also holds the records for giving birth to the most sets of twins and the most sets of quadruplets.
