Fertility Doctor of Octuplets in Spotlight

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com  - A California fertility doctor is facing a second investigation into why he implanted six embryos into single mother Nadya Suleman who already had six other children.

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine is looking at whether Dr. Michael Kamrava followed proper guidelines which eventually led to the birth of octuplets.

Kamrava was identified Monday as a result of an NBC interview with Suleman, but he did not return calls seeking a comment.

Suleman says she received in vitro fertilization for all 14 of her children at the same Beverly Hills fertility clinic where Kamrava works.

No more than three embryos are considered the norm for a woman her age.

The society's president, Dr. R. Dale McClure, said in a statement that guidelines pay not have been followed correctly in this case.

"Our guidelines provide the flexibility to give each patient treatment individualized to her needs, and her best chance to become pregnant without risking high-order multiple pregnancy," McClure said. "However, it seems that the guidelines may not have been followed in Ms. Suleman's case."

The California Medical Board is also investigating the multiple births.

Meanwhile, Suleman is speaking out.

In an interview on NBC's Dateline, she said her 14 children are all a sign from God that she should stop having kids.

Suleman also responded to her own mother's claim that she is incapable of caring for her children.

"What human on this planet is capable to take care of 14 independently without support from family, from friends, from church? No human is," she said.
