(Newser) – California’s Medical Board is investigating whether there was a violation of medical standards by the doctor who helped Nadya Suleman become pregnant with octuplets, the Whittier Daily News reports. Suleman told NBC all 14 of her children were born through in vitro fertilization performed by one California specialist. “We are looking into the matter to see if we can substantiate a violation of the standard of care,” a board statement said.
