IVF mix-up baby given back

‘Wrong’ baby implanted into mum returned

A baby born to the wrong mum after an IVF mishap was returned to his biological parents this week. The fertility clinic mistakenly implanted the wrong embryo into patient, Carolyn Savage.

Given the choice of terminating the pregnancy or handing over the baby on birth, Carolyn decided to go ahead with the pregnancy.

Surprisingly, a friendship developed between the two couples during the pregnancy and baby Logan’s parents, Shannon and Paul Morell, have given him ‘Savage’ as a middle name to remember his birth mummy.

“There is a connection with these people,” Shannon told the New York Post, “ He’s given that name so he’ll always remember what happened.”
