The mom with the most kids is Mrs. Feodor Vassilyev of Russia.
Feodor Vassilyev (Russian: Фёдор Васильев, older spelling: Ѳеодоръ
Васильевъ) (c. 1707 1782) was a peasant from Shuya, Russia. His first wife
is claimed to have lived to be 76 and, between 1725 and 1765, have had 69
children (16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets);
67 of them survived infancy with the loss of one set of twins: the record
for most children born to a single woman. However their name, date of birth,
and date of death are all unknown.

Vassilyev also had 18 children with his second wife, who had 6 pairs of
twins and 2 sets of triplets, making him a father of 87 children in total.
Of his 87 children, at least 82 are said to have survived infancy.

The data about Vassilyev's children are included in the Guinness Book of
World Records.[
