In a grand gesture, a 37-year-old woman will be donating her frozen embryos to women who lost their own due to fertility clinic blunders in the US, the Daily Mail reported.

Niki Schaefer is already mum to two children she conceived from from frozen embryos through IVF. Happy with her family life, Schaefer and her husband Brian were contemplating what to do with the four embryos they had remaining.

 

When news broke of of the loss of frozen embryos in a storage malfunction at UH Fertility Center in Cleveland, Ohio, she knew what she wanted to do.

Niki took to Facebook to share she was going to help some of these families come a little close to their dreams. "I have 4 more frozen embryos that I've never been quite sure what to do with," she wrote.

"I thought I would eventually donate them to research because I couldn't mentally handle the thought of Noah and Lane's formerly frozen siblings being on this earth and not knowing them.   

 

"The unfortunate events that compromised the frozen embryos at the UH Fertility Center changed my mind." Niki will facilitate the donation through her doctor.

The huge crisis has already produced lawsuits from couples that have been affected.
