Ms. Ima Mama (Mama) is a 35-year old single woman who sought the company Repro-Empros’ (Repro) services for in vitro fertilization (IVF). Repro advertises the effectiveness of its practice of screening embryos used for IVF for genetic disorders but also offers the disclaimer that the screening procedure is not a substitute for prenatal testing. Mama met with Doctor Helpum (Helpum), a Repro employee, who advised Mama against implanting multiple embryos because it increases the chances of having multiple babies and the risk of premature birth and lifelong health problems.
