Now the Manukyans are suing the clinic, CHA Fertility, for the shocking IVF mixup that has "played with three families' lives", Anni Manukyan said on Wednesday. Who wants to meet their child in the lobby of a hotel?
They said they were crushed no pregnancy resulted and then confused when the clinic called eight months later and asked them to come back "under false pretenses" for a DNA swab.
An attorney for the couple, Adam Wolf, said Wednesday the three-family mixup was one of the worst fertility centre tragedies in USA history.
"Due to the extreme misconduct of CHA Fertility Center, the number of things that went wrong here is just plain staggering", Wolf said on Wednesday announcing the lawsuit.
The Californian couple have now taken custody of their baby.
Each child born to the NY woman was found to be a genetic match to a different couple, lawyers said.
The "heartbreaking" mix-up originally occurred in August past year when the embryos of three separate couples, who were all being treated at the Los Angeles CHA Fertility Center on the same day, were implanted into the wrong women.
Anni and Ashot also learned the woman who had birthed Alec had given birth to two boys, with one belonging to a third couple who'd had their embryos on ice at CHA.
A Southern California couple is suing a fertility clinic, claiming their embryo was mistakenly implanted in a NY woman, who gave birth to their son as well as a second boy belonging to another couple.
The New York couple involved in the mix-up have also filed suit in federal court in Brooklyn, seeking compensation after suffering what they say are "significant and permanent emotional injuries from which they will not recover". "It was heartbreaking. It was awful", she sobbed.
They said that while they eventually were reunited with their son, their joy at being parents was ruined.
A couple in NY recently filed a federal lawsuit against CHA, claiming they'd given birth to twins that were not biologically theirs.
In addition, Anni Manukyan was mistakenly implanted with at least one embryo of a stranger, when she thought the embryo resulted from her and her husband's genetic material, according to the lawsuit.
"CHA wanted to obtain their DNA - under false pretenses - so that CHA could determine covertly whether a child, born on March 11, 2019 to a NY couple as one of two twins, might actually be Anni's and Ashot's child", said a news release posted to their lawyer's website. I mean, you know, he's ours.
Wolf, the couple's lawyer, said the Manukyans were seeking emotional and punitive damages as well as court costs in their fight for their infant son in NY and payments made to CHA.
"Plaintiffs' pain and fear has not abated with their reunion with their son. She's a wonderful woman and I pray for her every day", she said. They continue to see mental-health professionals. "This is something that they will live with for the rest of their lives".
Anni and Ashot Manukyan, who are biological parents of one of the baby boys, have revealed that not only was their embryo given to the wrong person, Anni was implanted with yet another stranger's embryo in its place.
"CHA put my family through living hell". "We're like zombies. We could not sleep, eat or focus. The hurting needs to stop and responsibility must be taken", he said.
But Dr. Joshua Berger and Simon Hong, co-owners of CHA Fertility Center, allegedly told the couple that the sonogram was "not a definitive test", with Berger reportedly relaying a similar story involving his own wife to the expectant parents, The New York Post reported.
