American couple gives birth to wrong children after IVF “mix-up”
An Asian couple who thought they were giving birth to twins conceived through IVF delivered the wrong children. According to the BBC, the couple has filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles-based CHA Fertility Center, claiming they made mistakes and implanted the mother with the wrong embryos. Through genetic testing, it was discovered that the babies delivered were not only not related to the parents, but weren’t even related to each other. The couple spent more than $100,000 on medical costs related to the IVF process. They say they noted that early sonograms showed boys; however, the facility told them no male embryos were used. The couple relinquished the babies after birth and the fertility center has not yet commented.
