They are the second couple to sue the facility - the NY couple who carried their son and another couple's son announced their lawsuit earlier this week.

His mother, Anni, says she feels robbed of the time she missed with her baby, as well as the opportunity she should have had to carry him herself.

Both the Manukyans in California and the unnamed couple in Unique York who gave birth to the babies are suing CHA Fertility Center.

In August 2018, the clinic transferred two of what were thought to be the Manukyans' embryos into Anni's uterus.

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.

A California couple has filed a lawsuit against a fertility clinic following an IVF mix-up.

The Manukyans claims they are one of those sets of parents. However, this procedure did not result in a pregnancy.

In their lawsuit the Manukyans said one of twins born to the NY woman, identified in court papers only by the initials A.P., was from their embryo, a fact they claim CHA sought to hide.

The Californian couple have now taken custody of their baby. She met her son six weeks after his birth in a hotel lobby. "It was just - it was heartbreaking, it was awful", she said. "We fought to get our boy back and now we will fight to make sure this never happens again". The pair say they were then asked to take a DNA test after the birth of the twins in March.

Chargers' Gordon wants trade if no deal
The Chargers were one of the better teams in football a year ago in large part due to Gordon on the ground and through the air. Though he has battled some knee injuries, he has been one of the most productive backs in the league when healthy.

However, the next day, they were called back in again and this time were greeted by a doctor and a psychologist who informed them that the swab was in fact a DNA test, confirming that they were the biological parents of a boy delivered by another woman, also a patient at CHA, on March 31 in NY.

The Manukyans, of Glendale, said that even after they learned of their biological son's birth, the clinic wouldn't tell them where he was located citing HIPAA violations.

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.

Each child born to the NY woman was found to be a genetic match to a different couple, lawyers said.

On Wednesday, the Glendale couple announced a lawsuit to "recover their losses and to sue for emotional distress inflicted in what is one of the worst embryo-related tragedies in USA history", the news release read.

The horrendous mix-up was revealed in a legal case filed last week by the NY couple who tried for years to become pregnant before giving birth to two babies belonging to two other families. They were then forced to give the babies up to their biological parents.

He said clinics should have appropriate standards to avoid errors in laboratory practices and identification.

And that's not the only heartbreaking part of this for her: the Manukyans revealed that Anni was also implanted with the wrong embryo on the same day but miscarried shortly after.
