The Surrogate Mother requested an increase in compensation from the Intended Parents and threatened to end the pregnancy if her demands were not met.
The latest surrogacy-gone-wrong case is the stuff of every intended parent’s nightmare.
The Montovers— a couple in Iowa who married later in life—nevertheless wished to have a child together. Unable to conceive and carry on their own, they turned to an anonymous egg donor and, separately, a gestational carrier (what we all know as a surrogate).
Unfortunately, what followed may be one of the worst cases out there on a surrogacy relationship breaking down. And there are plenty of lessons to go around.
