Mother of octuplets discharged from hospital

The mother who gave birth to octuplets last week was released from the hospital early this morning, according to hospital officials.

Nadya Suleman lives in Whittier, but it was unclear where she planned to go or whether her children were still at the hospital. Some doctors had speculated that Suleman would be able to leave while some of the babies would remain for treatment at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Bellflower.

Suleman made world headlines when she gave birth to the eight babies, only the second time octuplets were born in U.S. history. Suleman lives in Whittier with her father and already has six young children.
