There is nothing more beautiful in this life than having a child. It does not matter if you are the mother or the father, knowing that a new life has arrived in the world thanks to you is something that can hardly be explained with words. And, in the case of Natalie Suleman, this joy came in large quantities and totally changed her life, as we can see in the following article.
It is true that the nine months of waiting are long and full of sacrifices, but luckily in most cases, the goal is quite worthwhile and is something that all mothers know, that's why they live this beautiful adventure.
And to have your offspring in your arms for the first time is an incredible feeling that we all should experience at least once in a lifetime. Bringing a new life into the world is a truly unique experience, and very particular for some women like Natalie.
Do you remember the woman who had octuplets?
Sometimes there are surprises in pregnancy. A routine visit to the doctor can lead to unexpected news for the family: what if, instead of a child coming into the world, you realize that you are going to give birth to more than one, say, eight?
It is not a strange situation for a couple to have twins; Although this is mainly due to genetics, we have all seen on street two completely identical human beings. But in the case of Natalie Suleman, the number multiplied a bit.
A very particular event
In our world, a great number of different events have happened throughout history and some of them are related to the descent of a certain family. It is possible that sometimes a couple gives birth to three or even four children.
This really is not the most common, but it can happen. How do you think people would react if they find out that a woman is pregnant with eight children? This could create some controversy, but the reality is often able to overcome fiction.
Who is Natalie Suleman?
She is an adult film actress who, in 2009, already had six children under her belt. Because seven was her favorite number she underwent a fertility treatment to be able to give birth again and fulfill her dream of having 7 children.
This innovative technique gave the expected results, so the woman became pregnant. A few weeks later the doctor gave her a piece of news that left her really shocked: in her uterus there were no less than eight different embryos.
Natalie was nicknamed during the later years as the "octomom". Since at that time she was unemployed, many associations were worried about the health of all the children because they feared for the welfare of the eight newborns.
How could a mother without a job or a stable partner meet the basic needs of eight newborns, apart from the children she already had before? She decided that she had to do whatever it took to care for her children and joined the adult film world.
A very fleeting job
That job was not going to last forever; she would simply exercise it until she had secured a large sum of money so that her children would not be short of resources. Natalie always blamed what happened to the fertility treatment she underwent.
It seems that this method can cause in some cases that women give birth to more than one individual, which is often not desired. Of course, the time has passed since that time and Suleman's family has changed a lot over the years.
Their current life
Natalie has recently revealed to the media that several television stations offered her to appear on a "reality show" in which she would show viewers what her daily experiences were when she was surrounded by so many children, all of whom she was in charge of.
This woman had no intention of her offspring being in the view of everyone, so she did not accept the offer. As a good mother that she was and as we mentioned before, she worked out a future within the cinema.
She had to support his children
In 2013, she saw that she had accumulated a small fortune in that business, so she decided to retire forever in order to dedicate her life completely to her children, which have always been her priority and the main reason for her work.
Natalie has commented that the adult film world is not too beautiful, on the sets and during the shootings, you could feel the tension between the people and when producing the films there used to be direct confrontations.
A new job
Natalie had to find another job to support her offspring, so she moved to Orange County, her hometown, to start a counseling and psychiatrist job for women with problems of various kinds, but in which she has experience.
Her personal life was not exactly the most fun, her mother lost her life and her father was left in a wheelchair forever. Some of their children suffer from autism, so altogether perform at home therapies that help their children to escape from their problems.
The Suleman family
As we can see, the images on Natalie's social networks certify how well everyone is currently doing. Normally the family goes out for a walk or to play at the park every weekend, which is a relief for Natalie.
She feels very happy to see all her children playing and having a great time. This woman had to fight very hard to get ahead with her children, but as we can see, her sacrifices have paid off and they have been able to prosper correctly as a family.
The life of this family is still on the lips of many people, mainly those who know their history or live near her and her 14 children. The sacrifices she has had to make to support her family have led her to learn many things about life, and this is what allows her to help other women who, perhaps, do not go through the same problems as her, but need a person who understands them by their side.
