About Nadya Suleman's Career Highlights

And with further IVF treatments, she gained additional consecutive pregnancies and had a total of six children including a set of fraternal twins.

She let it out publicly in 2008 that she had six embryos left from her last IVF treatments and so she had the embryos transferred into her uterus at one time while the rule says two or three at the most. Defending her act she reasons that she did so to protect the frozen embryos.

Her supervisor Dr. Kamrava’s medical license was revoked on July 1, 2011, after it was found by the California Medical Board investigation that he transferred twelve embryos which were considered to be an “extreme” departure from the set standard of care.

The news of the birth of the octuplets became a media sensation internationally. Public response was widely known to be negative including death threats. Though Suleman claims to be able to provide for her children, her records differ as she is unemployed and in debt.
