Woman pregnant with wrong baby

2009-09-24 18:43
Washington - A woman from the northern US state of Ohio who learned she was pregnant with another couple's embryo that was implanted by mistake has decided to give the baby to its biological parents.

Carolyn Savage, 40, told US media on Tuesday that her husband broke the news to her.

"I have bad news. You're pregnant, but they transferred the wrong embryo," he told her after receiving the call from the clinic. Carolyn was then about two months into the pregnancy.

They decided to continue the pregnancy, and with Carolyn now entering the final weeks of her pregnancy the pair went public with their decision to hand the child over to its biological parents.

"Of course we will wonder about this child every day for the rest of our life," she said.

The couple already has three children, including a son who was conceived through artifical insemination.
