Couple sues fertility clinic, says their embryo implanted in wrong woman

Both the Manukyans in California and the unnamed couple in Unique York who gave birth to the babies are suing CHA Fertility Center.

Anni and Ashot Manukyan wanted their daughter to have a younger sibling, so they used a fertility clinic to try to get pregnant using in vitro fertilisation, or IVF.

The Manukyans say they now realize the two embryos that were implanted in Anni by CHA could not have been their own since one was actually given to the NY woman-who unwittingly became their surrogate. The wife gave birth in March 2019 to two boys who were not Asian and not from their embryos or related to each other, according to their lawsuit. Also, the second baby belonging to an unnamed couple has been given to them.

"What Anni and Ashot discovered, much to their horror, was that their son had been stolen from them when he was still an embryo and implanted into a stranger that later became his birth mother", claims the suit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

"The Glendale couple was ensnared by CHA in an elaborate three-family cascade of errors that resulted in the NY woman bearing two children of different ethnicities from her own", the law firm said.

"It means that we live with the uncertainty that another embryo of ours may be born to someone else", Anni Manukyan said.

The pair, who are only identified by their initials in the court documents, began in-vitro fertilisation treatment at the CHA Fertility Center in January 2018. She met her son six weeks after his birth in a hotel lobby.

They are now suing the clinic, with their attorney Adam Wolf calling their case "one of the worst embryo-related tragedies in U.S. history".

"This incredible series of events demonstrates CHA [Fertility Clinic]'s shocking incompetence", Adam Wolf, the couple's attorney, of Peiffer Wolff Carr and Kane, said. "It was heartbreaking. It was bad", Anni Manukyan said.

Anni and Ashot Manukyan had to go to court to get their child, in what is widely regarded as the first case of its kind.

He said clinics should have appropriate standards to avoid errors in laboratory practices and identification. According to the lawsuit, after an "expensive" legal battle that took more than a month, a judge granted them custody of the child and the Manukyans were able to return to California in May with their baby. I can't see how anybody can trust CHA again.

That mix-up led to a woman carrying and giving birth to babies that weren't her own.

And that's not the only heartbreaking part of this for her: the Manukyans revealed that Anni was also implanted with the wrong embryo on the same day but miscarried shortly after. Anni said through tears at a press conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Ashot said that they want to ensure that CHA is unable to hurt any other families.

"They have been unwilling to tell us how this happened", he said. Court docket filings reportedly deliver the birth couple ceded custody of the youngster, and that the hospital has made contact alongside with his natural other folks - even supposing they appreciate now not attain forward publicly. "CHA put my family through a living hell".
