Angela Suleman, whose daughter Nadya gave birth to octuplets, called her daughter's decision "unconscionable" and now she tells exclusively that the doctor who performed in vitro fertilization for Nadya's first six children promised he would not do any more procedures.

But Nadya Suleman said in a televised interview on Monday, February 9th that the same doctor was involved in conceiving all 14 of her children.

Angela told exclusively in a videotaped interview that she and Nadya's dad felt compelled to intervene because they believe Nadya is not capable of taking care of so many children. "Her dad and I were talking to her doctor so he would not do this again," Angela told "He did promise and he kept his promise. However she went somewhere else and had this last in vitro done again which resulted in octuplets."

Angela and Nadya's conflicting comments have heightened the growing controversy surrounding Nadya Suleman and Doc Oc's decision to perform in vitro with multiple embryos while Nandya already had six young children at home. The situation is being investigated by the California Medical Board. Medical ethicists have said it is highly unusual for a doctor to implant so many embryos and psychological experts are also expressing dire warnings.

"She really does not have any means to support" her children, Angela said she told her daughter's doctor. "That's enough."

But that wasn't enough, even though she says the doctor agreed.

The doctor did not respond to calls from for comment.
