Mom Gives Birth, Files Lawsuit Against Doctor

Lori Cichewicz says that her doctor told her there was no way she could conceive. She didn’t even have to use birth control. So, she didn’t.

Now she’s suing for wrongful conception.

According to FOX News, the Michigan woman was told this when she wanted to undergo a permanent birth control procedure after learning she would give birth to a child with Down Syndrome.

However, she never had the procedure because her doctor allegedly told her that her fallopian tubes were blocked and that there was no chance of conception.

Cichewicz, now 50, ended up getting pregnant about three years after that and gave birth to daughter Reagan, who has Down Syndrome, in 2011.

Once she learned she was pregnant, she knew she would give birth to the child, but says she never planned on having a baby.

“I’m older, I don’t know will I see her graduate college? Will I see her go to college? Will I see her get married? Will I see her graduate high school?,” wonders Cichewicz, according to FOX News. “All this is going through my mind.”

She is suing her doctor for damages due to emotional distress and wants to keep the doctor accountable for his alleged misdiagnosis and misguidance.
