Mother of six gave birth to octuplets on Monday at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center. The woman Nadya Suleman, 33 years old, still unmarried is said to be fine will remain in the hospital for a few more days.
A hospital spokesman told that all the 8 babies were fine too, but they will stay at the hospital for a month. 7 are breathing without assistance. The octuplets consists of six boys and two girls were delivered by c-section. They weigh between 1 pound, 8 ounces and 3 pounds 4 ounces.
Nadya’s mother Angela Suleman says that her daughter is obsessed with children and wanted to have more children. Her 6 children age from 2 to 7. Facing the problem of frozen embryos after previous pregnancies, Nadya went for in vitro fertilization. Her mother told that Nadya always had a problem in conceiving because of her plugged up fallopian tubes.
Social concerns have raised many suspects that the mother will fail to up bring her 14 children single handed (without a father). This will put Nadya and her children to rely on public funds.
A mother’s behavior to have so many children by choice is also thought to be having some psychological reasons. Co-director for the Center for Psychology in San Diego, David Diamond said that there can be many psychological reasons to act as a surrogate. Satisfaction can be on the top.
Though kept hidden by the grand mom, it been found that the children have come in to being by using the sperms of a single donor; David Solomon.
