Today we draw a close to this weeks blog topic a mutiple pregnancy.
A pregnancy with octuplets, very rare and the only 2 live births todate with all 8 babies were born alive.
In 1998 Nkem Chukwu and her husband, Iyke Louis Udobi, became parents to Octuplets beginning with Ebuka who was born on December 8, 1998. The seven remaining children were delivered by Caesarean section on December 20 later that month.One baby later died.
Nadya relied on in vitro fertilizations to conceive all of her children. Between 2001 and 2006, she had six babies — four individual children and one set of twins. Then, in 2008, she became pregnant with eight babies. She went on to make history by giving birth to the world’s longest-living set of octuplets.
She takes alot of lack for cayying all babies to nearly full term some adviced termination of 2 or more babies to give the others a chnce to live but when you love every child individually who decides which child should be murdered to give the others a best chance.
Guidelines issued to fertility doctors today recommend that would-be mothers are implanted with only one embryo at a time wherever possible, to cut the odds of risky twin and triplet births.
However, there are fears that the restriction will also lower the odds of pregnancy – and so rob thousands of women of the joy of motherhood.
