Embryo mix-up leads to emotional pregnancy

September 23, 2009 12:30:26 PM PDT
An Ohio woman is carrying another couple's child after she says a fertility clinic implanted her with the wrong embryo. Similar cases have degenerated into custody battles and ugly lawsuits. But 40-year-old Carolyn Savage, of Sylvania, says she knew right away that she and her husband would give the baby to the biological parents.

She is due to give birth within the next two weeks. The biological parents live in Michigan.

The Savages say a fertility clinic outside Ohio transferred the wrong frozen embryo in February. They got a call 10 days later from a doctor saying she was pregnant with someone else's child.

The Savages say they have hired attorneys who are working to make sure the clinic accepts responsibility.
