LOS ANGELES — The Beverly Hills fertility doctor responsible for Nadya Suleman's octuplets has helped impregnate a 49-year-old woman with quadruplets, it was reported Thursday.
Dr. Michael Kamrava provided fertility treatment to the quadruplets' mother, the Los Angeles Times reported. The uninsured woman is currently hospitalized at County-USC Medical Center, according to the the newspaper.
Kamrava's magnum opus, Nadya Suleman, has been heavily criticized since Jan. 26, when she gave birth to eight bundles of joy. Suleman quickly became America's most polarizing mother (sorry, Dina Lohan) after it was reported that the single mother already had six children and was receiving aid from the government.
A doctor with knowledge of Kamrava's latest work told the Times, "I do think it is concerning, and dangerous, especially to the mother. She is close to 50. When women get to be that age, our fear is the cardiovascular complications, such as stroke or heart attack. That's how serious this is."
America Turns on Octo-Mom
Suleman, of Whittier, Calif., has received hate mail and death threats through her new website thenadyasulemanfamily.com, according to her publicist. The LAPD said it is investigating.
Suleman and her six other children, ages 2 to 7, moved into what her publicist called "an undisclosed location." The website RadarOnline.com reported they were living in a hotel.
Suleman has insisted she will be able to support her 14 kids without government assistance.
Her website has pictures of the children and invites people to leave comments and make a contribution. According to the publicist, people have offered food, clothing, furniture and even breast milk, and an Indiana farmer offered to take in the entire family.
The octuplets, six boys and two girls, were still being treated at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center. Doctors said Wednesday that all of the babies were breathing room air, and only two were still being given nutritional supplements.
