Ohio Mother Implanted With Wrong Embryo to Give Baby to Biological Parents After Birth

An Ohio woman says a fertility clinic implanted the wrong embryo and that the baby she is about to give birth to is not hers.

Forty-year-old Carolyn Savage of Sylvania is due to give birth in two weeks via Cesarean section. She and her husband are prepared to give the boy to his biological parents, whom they have met.

The Savages appeared Monday on NBC's "Today" show.

After the successful in vitro fertilization and delivery of their youngest child last year, the Savages returned to their fertility clinic in February to try for one more. That's when the mix up occurred.

Attorneys for the Savages said in a statement that they are working to make sure that the fertility clinic "will accept full responsibility for the consequences of their misconduct."

The show did not name the clinic.
