Fertile Heart video offers author/fertility advocate Julia Indichova's views on spontaneous pregnancies after failed fertility treatments, addresses questions regarding Carolyn Savage's "embryo mix up" story.
WOODSTOCK, N.Y., July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Carolyn and Sean Savage, a couple with three healthy children, choose to try for a fourth child using in vitro fertilization. Due to a lab error, another couple's embryo is transferred into Carolyn's womb and she becomes pregnant with another couple's baby.
"When I read this couple's story soon after the publication of their book, Inconceivable (the same title as my first book) I thought, 'Was this couple infertile, or could it be that their 'infertility' rather than being 'cured' by infertility treatments was in fact induced by medical intervention?'
"Four years after the 'embryo mix up' that made headlines, Carolyn Savage at age 45 became pregnant with her sixth child. This time it was a spontaneous pregnancy.
"I decided to make a public statement about this case because there are lessons here that can be immensely useful, not only to women and men facing reproductive challenges, but to all of us interested in healing."
What is the effect of repeated failed fertility treatments on the patient?
Is spontaneous pregnancy after failed fertility treatment a "fairy tale"?
How do financial resources affect choice of treatment and treatment outcome?
What is the most hope-filled lesson of the Savages' inconceivable story?
