Nadya Suleman Children
Suleman began IVF treatments in 1997, when Nadya Suleman was 21 years old, under the supervision of Dr. Michael Kamrava, who was later (October 2009) expelled from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine,
In 2001 Suleman gave birth to her first child, a son. In 2002 Nadya Suleman gave birth to her first daughter. Suleman continued IVF treatments which resulted in three further pregnancies (including one set of fraternal twins) for a total of six children (four sons, two daughters).
In 2009, Suleman stated that Nadya Suleman had six embryos left over from her previous IVF treatments. She explained that Nadya Suleman requested all of the remaining embryos be transferred into her uterus at one time. A woman her age would normally have a maximum of two or three embryos transferred. Suleman states that part of her reasoning for attempting the sixth pregnancy was so that the frozen embryos not be destroyed. Fresh cycles were always done, despite there being available frozen embryos stored with Dr. Kamrava. In June 2011, during a California Medical Board investigation, it was found that Kamrava had transferred twelve embryos, which the board found to be an “extreme” departure from the standard of care. After reviewing Suleman’s case, in combination with three other cases, the Medical Board of California voted to revoke Kamrava’s medical license, effective July 1, 2011. According to The New York Times, Kamrava hid his assets in the Cook Islands, making use of its asset-protection trust law.
