WOH with 14 kids?

Fri, 02-06-2009 - 5:11pm

Octuplet mother of 14 kids under the age of 8 is planning on financially caring for her children without any welfare assistance.

What kinds of challenges do you all think she will face? Do you think it's possible to be semi-famous in this way and even land a job in the first place?

So? Just because another doctor might do the procedure doesn't mean the first doctor has to take her as a patient.

Yep and it also doesn't make the doctor who will finally do the procedure right, in doing the procedure.

I do when it's an accidend of nature but implanting this many embryos in a woman who already has six children is not.

He's a fertility doctor and should never have taken the risk of implanting so many embryos in ANYONE, let alone a woman who'd already had 6 pregnancies.

I guess you didn't read everything, I said it sounds kind of cold (not that it was). And I also said with the situation the way it is . . . I don't blame her (grandma)!

I am really rather surprised any doctor thought it was healthy for this woman to have the original 6 so close in age on purpose. I was very young and very healthy when I had two back to back pregnancies, and after delivery number 2, my doctor consulted me on family planning, explaining that if I wanted more, a few years in between would be ideal for both my health and the health of any possible future babies.
