Many women dream of becoming a mum, but that dream was almost taken from one woman who thought she’d never be able to start a family. But now, Satu Nordling Gonzalez, from Sweden, is a proud mum of 10 having spent the last 14 years of her life pregnant, The Sun reports. The 35-year-old mum details her family life on Instagram and shares adorable snaps of her children aged seven months to 13 years. Satu, who is a stay-at-home mum, was reportedly 21 when she first fell pregnant but it ended tragically in a miscarriage.
According to a local Swedish publication, Satu was left with scarring on the uterus and falling pregnant again proved difficult. Due to stress, ovulation then stopped entirely for Satu who thought “I would never become what I felt I was created to be, a mother”. But two years later she finally fell pregnant again after thinking she was infertile, and she and husband Andres welcomed baby Nicole in 2008. Now, Satu and Andres, who works in construction, have six girls and four boys after welcoming their youngest Benjamin just seven months ago – Nicole, 13, Vanessa, 12, twins Jonathan and Danilo, 11, Olivia, 8, Kevin, 7, Celina, 6, Isabelle, 3, Melania, 1, and Benjamin 7 months.
Then, when the kids are home from school, she will make them a snack, help with their homework, continue the housework and prepare dinner while the kids are playing. Bedtime for Satu is at about midnight, according to The Sun, and alone time with her husband is only when all the kids are in bed at 8pm.
“Being a mother is a huge work and sacrifice. At times, a feeling of fatigue overwhelms me even before I have breakfast. However, the smiles and love of children is the best reward for my care for them,” Satu said.
“My body has always recovered quickly after pregnancies. I am active with children and I move a lot because of them.”
