Woman Sues Fertility Clinic For Having A Boy When She Had IVF For Girl

A couple has resorted to suing a fertility clinic in New York after they had IVF for a baby girl but welcomed a boy. 

The couple including Heather Wilhelm-Routenberg and her wife Robin (Robbie) found a fertility clinic in New York to have embryos implanted and they specifically did so, so they can ensure they have a girl.

The couple spoke to New York Post about it. They said, they chose Robbie’s eggs and a donor’s sperm to create an embryo that was implanted in Heather’s womb.

After growing attached and thinking they’d have a girl, they had a major shock in the 15th-week scan. The sonographer told them that they are having a boy. 

“Our jaws dropped to the floor. I was convinced it had to be someone else’s result,” Heather said.

The couple was convinced that it wasn’t their own baby. They thought of it as an alien inside the body. After 7 weeks of process and investigation, they came to know that the baby is their own only. However, the couple had no connection to the baby and felt betrayed. 

Heather said: “We had a healthy baby, but I had no emotional connection and now I had to wrap my head around having a child forever that I wasn’t planning on.”

The couple was so adamant about not having a boy because Heather was ‘afraid of hospitals’ and had experienced ‘a lot of physical pain during medical procedures on [her] reproductive region’. 

This was distressing for the couple.
