Some Fertility Doctors in New York got an Asian couple pregnant with babies that are not theirs after spending about $100,000 fees, medication, lab expenses and travel costs.
The Asian Couple paid these doctors of the California-based CHA Fertility Centre tens of thousands of dollars to have children but ended up giving them babies that is not even from their continent.
And to make it worst, after discovery, the couple had to relinquish custody to their natural parents after tests confirmed the babies were not genetically related to them.
This incident started in January 2018, when they decided to travel to California after struggling to have children.
They eventually underwent treatment to prepare for In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) with CHA Fertility, which describes itself as one of the world’s “premier fertility treatment networks” and claims to have “fulfilled the dreams of tens of thousands of aspiring parents from Southern California and beyond in over 22 countries.”
During IVF, an egg is removed from the woman’s ovaries and fertilised with sperm in a laboratory, according to the NHS.
With fact that they’ve been looking for child that long, the couple decided to have two female embryos (twins) implanted in August 2018.
When the babies were born, they looked somehow, then DNA tests revealed that the two boys were not even genetically related to the parents.
What happened to the embryos they picked and paid for is still a mystery.
