Abida Mahmood and Sajid Mahmood claim their doctor thawed and killed their embryos, shattering their hopes of having a family of their own. According to the New York Post, the Queens couple filed a malpractice lawsuit against the Long Island hospital they went to for fertility treatments.
Last year, Abida Mahmood and Sajid Mahmood were incapable of conceiving and visited the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Center for Human Reproduction at Manhasset's North Shore University Hospital. The couple's NY personal injury lawyer Stephanie Ovadia said her clients' physician, Matthew Cohen, started an in-vitro fertilization program for the couple. The procedure involved extracting Abida's eggs, fertilizing them outside her womb, and implanting the eggs back into her.
