Embryo mix-up couple expect twins from surrogate

An Ohio woman who gave birth to another woman's baby after a fertility clinic mix-up has announced she and her husband are expecting twins through a surrogate mother.

Carolyn Savage said Thursday on NBC's "Today" show that she and husband Sean "hit the jackpot" after repeated attempts to have more children with embryos they harvested.

The Savages say the babies are due in August. The suburban Toledo couple, who have three children, found out about the pregnancy before Christmas.

Carolyn Savage had been implanted with the wrong embryo at the clinic and delivered a baby boy in September 2009. She gave the child to his biological parents, a couple in Utica, Mich.

Savage is unable to carry another baby herself partly because of difficulties during her earlier pregnancies.
