Nadya Denise Doud-Suleman Gutierrez known as Octomom in the media

Nadya Denise Doud-Suleman Gutierrez (born Natalie Denise Suleman; July 11, 1975),known as Octomom in the media, is an American woman who came to international attention when she gave birth to octuplets in January 2009.The Suleman octuplets  are only the second full set of octuplets to be born alive in the United States and, one week after their birth, surpassed the previous worldwide survival rate for a complete set of octuplets set by the Chukwu octuplets in 1998. The circumstances of their high order multiple birth have led to controversy in the field of assisted reproductive technology as well as an investigation by the Medical Board of California of the fertility specialist involved.Public reaction turned negative when it was discovered that the single mother already had six other young children and was unemployed and on public assistance programs. She conceived the octuplets and her six older children via in vitro fertilisation (IVF).


Early life and education

Suleman was born in Fullerton, California as the only child of Edward and Angela Doud. Her parents married in Las Vegas in 1974, and divorced in 1999

She held a psychiatric technician license, and worked as a psychiatric technician at Metropolitan State Hospital, where her back was injured while at work. After graduating from Nogales High School in 1993, she attended California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) and received a Bachelor of Science degree in child and adolescent development in 2006. Suleman returned to CSUF to pursue a master's degree in counseling, leaving the program in 2008
