Record for most children

For reasons I can’t remember now, Nathan and I were wondering what the world record for child birth was earlier today… I was shocked by the answer:
The most prolific mother in history was a Russian peasant who had 69 children in the 18th century. Between 1725 and 1765, she endured 27 multiple births, which included 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets.
