When Nadya gave birth to octuplets, people wondered if she had bit off more than she could chew, but over the years Nadya has proved them wrong.
Being a single child, Nadya always wished for siblings and a big family. Unfortunately, she suffers from medical issues that don’t let her conceive naturally.
Determined, Nadya saved money for IVF treatments and became a mom of six children. But she wanted more. She decided to give it a go one last time.
However, the doctor planted six embryos inside her as she wanted to have all of her remaining ones transferred. Only to later find that she’s gonna have eight kids.
According to Nadya, she started “showing” at just nine days and her belly became round and wide. After 6 months, she snapped her rib and had to be in bed for six weeks while her mom cared for her.
Due to complications, the babies were born via a C-section. All healthily delivered, they became the first octuplets to survive their infancy. The big family lives in a three-bedroom house.
At the time of the kids’ birth, Nadya was unemployed and living with her mother but she worked hard, accepted any work she could get, and managed to care for all of her babies. Currently, the family lives in a three-room house in Orange County. They lead a vegan lifestyle.
