Rachel – Day 85

6 May

The News: WHOOPS. A couple decided to freeze their embryos for an undetermined time only to find out that a terrible thing happened to their embryos. The couple’s Doctor thawed their eggs and implanted them in another woman who got pregnant and delivered their baby. The pregnant woman was devastated to find out her fertility treatment impregnated her with a stranger’s child when it was supposed to be her and her husband’s embryo. They settled outside of court and now the baby is in custody of the biological parents, not the birth mom.

My Comments: Big mistake Dr. Mixup….yikes! I can’t bare to think of such a horrible and emotionally draining situation such as this. How crazy! Good thing both couples got a hefty settlement paid out by the fertility agency. That stresses me out.
