This whole situation reminds me of Jodi Picoults book "Handle With Care". It's not exactly the same as this, but I would suggest this mother reads the book to get a grasp of the emotions she would have and her daughter may have in the future. Because if she goes ahead with the court case her daughter is basically going to grow up knowing/thinking that her mother didn't/doesn't want her.

Surely the case is virtually unwinnable though? She would have the burden of proof to show she def would have terminated had she known and also that the med pros never made the suggestion she may be pg.
All these blogs and interviews she has done in the past saying how being a single mum has effectively enriched her life will go against her.

You don't need a doctor to diagnose pregnancy. It's not like it's a mystery when you have sex and start feeling tired and sick in a few weeks. This woman better learn about the facts of life if she is studying vet science.

Take out the possibility of having pcos...did she not realize she missed her period for 6 months? It doesn't mention she still had it.
Plus why did she take 3 years to sue? How did she afford it for 3 years?

Plus which doctor would want to treat her now after she's suing another clinic?

Side note: I had no idea a Dr can't test for pregnancy without consent in Australia! I had a bad horse riding accident in America. I was asked at the hospital if I could be pregnant, I said no way (I'd been single for 6 months) and thought no more of it until I got the bill a few weeks later. I'd been charged for a pregnancy test! I was pretty surprised, especially at the flipping price! Maybe they were just milking my insurance.
Now back to the topic. I saw her quote about saving more if she'd known. Even if she'd quit uni and got a full time job, she wouldn't have saved that much in the few months. Noy enough to make a massive difference over the baby's whole life anyways.

I can see where your coming from, but put yourself in the mind set of an 18 YO girl!! At 18 I spent my days studing and organising where we were going on the weekends.
I understand that if you DTD you need to be prepared for the consequences but can you honestly say you were prepared to raise children when you first started having S3x? I certainly wasn't!! I I could not have got my **** together in 10 weeks!!!!!
she had 10 week to prepare for single motherhood, the pain and suffering she may be referring to could be, her simple not being prepared financially and there for not being able to provide for her daughter? That could be what's causing her pain and suffering?
I think I am not her and I always hope ppl are genuine I am giving her the benefit of the doubt!
I believe she needs support and encouragement!
Her pregnancy should have been found earlier, to help everyone involved and if it was I believe this artical would have read really differently!!!!
