HBO @ Noon: Octuplets, Anyone?

Item: Surviving Octuplets Born for Second Time Ever: Doctor: Eighth Baby Was a ‘Tremendous Surprise’/ABC News

More Info: After she gave birth to seven babies, a California woman — and the massive 46-person team of doctors that was assisting the birth — thought she was done. But one last baby, perhaps hiding behind the others, had other ideas. When the baby popped out Monday at 10:48 a.m., the woman, whose name the hospital did not release, became the second ever to give birth to surviving octuplets — six boys and two girls.

Question: What advice would you give to a woman who’d just given birth to eight surviving infants?
