In 2009, an unusual record holder appeared – Californian Nadia Suleman, who became the mother of eight babies at once, born at the same time and eventually managed to survive.
Nadia was called the “eight mom” and “super mom”, but there were many difficult moments in her life. It is worth noting that before the birth of eight, Suleman had already raised six children, among whom were twin sons. What prompted the 33-year-old woman to such extreme motherhood is hard to imagine, especially since she did not have a spouse.
One way or another, one of the doctors agreed to an amazing IVF, during which twelve viable embryos were implanted into the uterus at once, and not 2-3, as required by medical protocols. Later, that bold specialist was deprived of his license, but Nadia became the Guinness Book Record holder.
Fact! The mystery of paternity has not yet been solved. Nadia called the name of David Solomon, but close people did not confirm this information. Then a certain Denis Bodin, who called himself a donor, showed up, but Suleman accused him of lying.
Suleman had a hard time: state payments were sorely lacking, as well as forces. Neighbors and acquaintances helped her, and at first the family received income from filming a reality show about an amazing family. Nadia accepted all offers to participate in various projects, but over time, there were fewer and fewer such options.
In society, Suleman began to be treated ambiguously. It turned out that she participated in explicit, questionable photo shoots and danced in bars, according to her, to support her family. Nadya was convicted of wasting money on her own appearance instead of keeping children, as well as in defective upbringing of children. Because of the million dollar debt, the family’s housing was put up for auction. Suleman survived depression and neurosis, went through rehabilitation and was eventually able to restore her reputation.
According to some information, in her hometown, the mnogomama graduated from her medical education and now works with autistic people, and also helps women who are faced with life’s difficulties return to a normal life. Today, the eldest son Suleman is already nineteen, and the younger eights are eleven.
Periodically, Nadia shares photos with numerous children: in all the pictures, daughters and sons look happy. This suggests that at the moment everything is really good in the family, and 44-year-old Nadia is coping with maternal responsibilities. In addition, she manages to take care of herself and stay in great shape.
