Octuplets' mother defends risky choices

LOS ANGELES (AFP)

The single mother-of-six who gave birth to octuplets in California last week defiantly defended her personal choices as risky, but insisted: "it turned out perfectly."

Nadya Suleman, 33, who now has 14 children, told NBC News in an interview broadcast on Friday that "all I wanted was children.

"That's all I ever wanted in my life. Sometimes when we have that dream and that passion, we take risks. And I did. And it turned out perfectly," she said.

Suleman said that being an only child had left her yearning for human and family connections she felt had been lacking while growing up.

"That was always a dream of mine, to have a large family, a huge family, and -- I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that I -- I really lacked, I believe, growing up," Suleman said.

The Medical Board of California confirmed Thursday it had begun an investigation into the births "to see if we can substantiate a violation of the standard of care."

Suleman's case has angered fertility experts after it emerged she had her own previously frozen embryos implanted.

Under guidelines issued by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), a woman Suleman's age should have no more than two embryos implanted.

She told NBC she had had six implanted this time, and that two resulted in sets of twins.
