Satu Nordling Gonzalez, from Sweden, is now a proud mother of 10 children after spending the previous 14 years of her life pregnant. The 35-year-old mother documents her family life on Instagram, posting gorgeous photos of her four children, ranging in age from four months to thirteen years. Satu, a stay-at-home mom, was allegedly 21 years old when she became pregnant with her now-husband Andres from Uruguay, but the pregnancy ended in sorrow when she ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴇᴅ.
Satu’s ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs was scarred, according to a local Swedish magazine, and becoming pregnant again proved tough. Satu’s ovulation halted completely due to stress, and she believed, “I would never become what I felt I was intended to be, a mother.” But two and a half years later, after believing it was impossible, she became pregnant again, and their first child, Nicole, was born in 2008.
Satu and Andres, who works in construction, now have six daughters and four boys – Nicole, 13, Vanessa, 12, twins Jonathan and Danilo, 11, Olivia, eight, Kevin, seven, Celina, six, Isabelle, three, and Melania, one-and-a-half – after delivering their youngest Benjamin only seven months ago. The busy mother’s day begins at 6.30 a.m., when she changes diapers, prepares breakfast for her large family, and gets her older children ready for school.
Then the chores begin, with her cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry and dishes, vacuuming the house, and tidying up their Swedish home – all before doing more washing after lunch. All the while, she is responsible for the clan’s youngest members and ensures that they follow a rigid sleeping pattern. When the kids get home from school, she’ll make them a snack, assist them with their homework, finish up the housekeeping, and start preparing supper while they’re playing. Satu’s bedtime is around midnight, according to BabyNews, and she only gets alone time with her husband when all the kids are in bed at 8 p.m.
“Being a mother entails a great deal of effort and sacrifice. Even before I eat breakfast, a sensation of exhaustion might overpower me. “However, the biggest reward for my caring for children is their smiles and affection,” Satu added. “After pregnancies, my body has always healed fast.” I’m quite busy with kids, and I move a lot because of them,” she says.
