And You Thought You Had Seen it All . . .

Remember Nadya Suleman? The woman who recently produced a litter of 8 children is not alone.

And neither is her doc.

It seems the good Dr. Kamrava has almost a fetish for assisting in the procreation process. He is already under fire for his handiwork with Ms. Suleman. Now we find out she is not the only woman wanting to create their own population explosion.

The woman, who has three adult children already, is around five months’ pregnant, and has been admitted to hospital where she is expected to remain until the birth, the Los Angeles Times reports. It is understood that Dr Kamrava transferred at least seven embryos, made from donor eggs, into the woman.

Let's parse this out.

The woman is 49 years old, with three adult children.

She had 7 embryos from DONATED eggs. In other words, these are not (genetically speaking) her children.

Dr Kamrava is under investigation by the American Society For Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the Medical Board of California after Nadya Suleman, 33, gave birth to octuplets last month . Women Miss Suleman’s age should have a maximum of two embryos implanted in the womb during a single cycle, the ASRM says.

Did the doctor lose count? Or is he just hoping the National Enquirer will come knocking?

The LA Times reports that the 49-year old expectant mother has three adult children, but wanted a baby with her new husband, who is believed to be almost 20 years her junior.

It would seem that a psychiatric evaluation is not required before undergoing this procedure.

According to Federal Records, Dr Kamrava’s West Coast IVF Clinic has one of the worst success rates of any fertility clinic in the country. Of the 61 procedures conducted in 2006, only two resulted in births — one of which was Miss Suleman's twins.

So why does this guy still have a license to practice medicine?

One other interesting tidbit about this new mommy. She was initially admitted to Good Samaritan hospital but then transferred to USC hospital.

Good Sam is a private hospital.

USC is taxpayer funded and treats patients who do not have insurance.
