Nadya Suleman, mother of octuplets plus six other kids, joins Dr. Phil to continue her first interview in front of a live audience. No one outside of the immediate family and hospital staff, has ever met the octuplets … until now. Go inside the hospital with Dr. Phil and Nadya to meet Jonah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Makai, Isaiah, Noah, Nariyah and Maleeyah, and find out how they're really doing. Then follow Nadya during her visit with Jonah, the only octuplet still in the neonatal intensive care unit, and see their precious moments together. Some of the babies will come home any day now, but the specialized care they need is astronomical in scope. Linda and Jackie from Angels In Waiting break down the realities of what it's going to take to care for these newborns. You'll be surprised to learn every detail they must consider to make the transition a success. Also, the women raise concerns about Nadya's new house. And, a few more angels surprise Nadya and her children with their generosity. You don't want to miss a minute of this show! Tell us what you think!


Find out what happened on the show.

Deceived Disgruntled and Dumbfounded

Deceived Disgruntled and Dumbfounded

Judges have guaranteed B. Madoff three squares and a flop, Dr. Phil Quixote has assured palace like quarters and care for the octuplets and congress has bailed out sinking money lenders.

In this world of evil and sin it seems like the losers win in the end.

Enough

I have had my fill of this woman and am very disappointed in all of the help she is getting.  Several other posters have stated that she's being rewarded for being selfish and dumb.  No one is going to give me free things when I make mistakes or can't pay my bills.  Her 15 minutes of fame is about over and I hope that other people will see that she's only looking for a free handout .

Help

I think it's great that all these people want to help. I do think Gloria was a bit pushy in the beginning, making it seem like she couldn't use her family and friends as helpers.
I brought home a preemie and had 3 already home. Granted a bit different, but I certainly didn't worry about stair treads or railing. The babies won't be crawling for quite sometime.
Those two ladies kinda remind me of voltures!

03/11 Dr. Phil Meets the Octuplets

What I don't understand, why it seems this mom is just having all of these kids for the money and attention, any other family in America who's having problems with caring for their children or with paying their bills, why are these family's not getting any help or money to be interviewed? but just because of this woman's stupidity she's getting a 500,000 home and round the clock care for each and everyone of her children. Its just so disappointing to be ignoring the issue that everyone in this country has some sort of problem with the care of their children, whether it be money or food or shelter, we seem to be blind to the facts because of this woman's ignorance and lack of sanity. Who in their right mind would actually do invetro on a woman who already has six kids and is a single parent, child services should have been involved more and evaluated the living conditions and care of these children, but now that she has 8 more, all of a sudden people want to give her help and money, what about everyone else? Its just so.. there's not even a word that describes how this makes me feel about this woman. Any mother with any concern of a child's welfare would no better than to have so many children being a single parent with no income... Another person living off my tax money, that i work for, that makes me feel great... not

i'm still not convinced

I just watched my recording of yesterdays show and I'm still not quite convinced of Nadya and her motives. She sounded "coached", and probably wisely so. If she didnt turn her attitude around, the rest of her free ride wouldnt play out as planned. And while Dr. Phil denies purchasing that home for her, I didnt seem to catch who actually DID. The realtor just said that they'd be "closing today." And modest? looks nicer than what we can afford on my husbands army salary but whatever.

 

i gotta go lay down, im pregnant with twins, have 2 other children 1 w/ special needs, my soldier husband just got orders for germany, wont be here for the birth or my recovery, i have no help at all, and my damn feet are starting to swell again.

As usual we reward people for bad decisions.  I realize the children are innocent and aren't responsible for their birth mothers choices, but come on, this is simply not right.  Look at the mansion she will be moving into.  Then they are picking it apart as if it is run down and decrepit.  My home doesn't look like that nor can we afford anything like that and we are hard working, tax paying individuals.  Guess we did something wrong when we chose to take the moral and ethical path in life.  Guess we could have had all this is we stay unemployed, keep producing children and have no father figure in the picture.  Seems our country rather help them than those that are being responsible for their actions and paying their way.  Sad world we live in.

Consequences

I do not think fostercare is the correct decision, but why not go straight to adoption.  She is obviously mentally impared, and has put all 14 children's needs behind her own need for notoriety and free material things, including a home, all the furnishings and probably a bus!

Who's paying the medical bills?

I think instead of saving money for the future, she needs to take COMPLETE responsibility of the expenses for this, especially if she is making licensing money for the pictures and what not.

Octuplets

Where is the world does these people come from? All babies put their hands in a defense position. IT IS NOT STRESS!!! Has  these woman never had babies?  All five of my children did it and it is a natural for babies to do that when you move them or pick them up! Come on people leave this lady alone and let her live her life and raise her kids!! They are all beautiful babies and she seems to be a very caring mom!
