Do you know which woman has the record of having the most children at one time (all of whom survived)?
If not, find out that she is an American Jewish woman named Nadia Suleiman who gave birth to 8 children at the same time about 10 years ago, and now for the first time she has broken her silence on this experience.
Nadia Suleiman, 43, now known as Natalie Suleiman, also known as Octo Mum, gave birth to six boys and two girls in January 2009.
This record-breaking pregnancy was confirmed by IVF and it was (and still is) the first time a woman has given birth to eight children and all of them have survived.
Ten years after the incident, the woman spoke to the New York Times about it. As well as her six other children who were born through IVF.
She said she has been working on a book for 13 years, “That’s why I’m giving this interview, I’ve been writing this since I was in graduate school.”
In fact, she is the mother of 14 children living in a 3-room house in California.
Their 8 children look younger in age but like their other siblings, they help the mother in cooking. And since their number is very high, the food is eaten in shifts.
“I was misled by my doctor and Dr. Kamrava did a lot of embryo implants,” said Nadia Suleiman.
Following the incident, the doctor’s medical license in the United States was revoked and he left the country.
According to the woman, she resorted to IVF because it was not possible for her to become a mother nature. But she knew that she was going to have so many children in her last pregnancy because she only wanted twins.
“The pregnancy had a devastating effect on my body. The abdomen swelled so much that the ribs were broken, while the psychological effects were different. I didn’t feel the toes in my feet for many years while my fingers were all the time,” she says. Keep listening
The woman’s past is not very enviable
Nadia was once addicted to alcohol and spent two years recovering. While also working in pornographic films, but now she does not hide her past from her children.
“We talk about everything, they know everything about me, we are in financial trouble. But we are happy to be free from the scourge of the past,” he said.
During the interview, Nadia said that she relies on government support. And international photoshoots for her livelihood, but also insisted, “I don’t want attention.”
This attention she received after a record-breaking pregnancy.
