In the continuing bizarre saga of octuplets mother, Nadya Suleman, the latest news comes from a video posted on RadarOnline.com by Nadya, in which she defends the fertility doctor who helped her conceive 14 children in all. She is quoted as saying he did “absolutely nothing wrong.”
Well the California Medical Board thinks differently and in early January it accused the Beverly Hills fertility doctor, Michael Kamrava, of gross negligence in three instances: the transferring of too many embryos, repeatedly transferring fresh embryos when there were frozen ones available and the failure to refer Nadya for a mental health evaluation. The board could revoke or suspend Dr. Kamrava’s license.
Suleman had six children, when she gave birth to octuplets on January 26 of last year. They are the world’s longest living set of octuplets. Mother Suleman said that she underwent in vitro treatment that resulted in the eight babies because she did not want her frozen embryos to go to waste. However, the medical board claims that Kamrava did not use frozen embryos in any of her pregnancies and that this constituted a risk to her health.
Along comes, Peter Osinoff, who is Kamrava’s lawyer, who said that Suleman wanted fresh embryos to improve her chances of giving birth. In the video, Suleman denied those allegations, maintaining that Kamrava told her he transferred what was left of the frozen embryos. And then this mother of many children admitted that she may have signed papers she didn’t read. She said, “Maybe that was my negligence.” It is astonishing to contemplate the fact that she may not have read those papers.
In the video Suleman jokes about the fact that if Kamrava lost his license, her ability to have more babies would be hampered.
There is another accusation facing the fertility doctor and that involves the fact that he gave Suleman too much of a hormone while stimulating in vitro fertilization, kept poor records and did not recognize that Suleman’s behavior was putting her babies at risk.
The good doctor, however, does wish to continue practicing, according to his attorney.
