Nadya Suleman, US octuplets’ mother struggled with depression

By HBC Protocols February 06, 2009 0 comments

Nadya Suleman, the 33-year-old mother of octuplets said on Thursday that she struggled with depression for years until she finally began to realise her dream of having a “huge family”. In an NBC News interview released to media, Nadya spoke of her loneliness as an only child and her dream of being a mother. Asked how an only child ended up with 14 children of her own she said, “That was always a dream of mine, to have a large family, a huge family.” Nadya tried for years to get pregnant before conceiving her first child through vitro fertilization. “From that facility, it was successful. And then I just kept going in,” she said.

Last month, she gave birth to octuplets. Her first six children are said to range in age from 2 to 7. Suleman also told doctors she battled with depression for years after she was injured in a riot in 1999 at the state mental hospital where she worked. The doctors’ reports were included in more than 300 pages of documents released to The Associated Press by the state Department of Mental Health. “I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that … I really lacked, I believe, growing up,” she said. In the interview, scheduled to air on the Today show on Monday, Suleman calls her childhood “pretty dysfunctional” and said she often battled with depression as an adult. The report says she had three miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies, a dangerous condition in which a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the uterus. She attributed her depression in part to the breakup of her marriage to Marcos Gutierrez, whom she had wed in 1996. The couple split in 2000 and divorced last year.
