Sounds like a movie script? A woman suing her fertility clinic after her husband had an affair with her nurse during her fertility treatments. But this one's the truth!

No Movie Tale

It reads like a movie script: A woman suing her fertility clinic after her husband had an affair with her nurse during her fertility treatments. But, for Po Leung, it’s no big screen tale: it’s her real life nightmare. Leung, age 44, is suing her Canadian fertility clinic, the Markham Fertility Centre, after her husband had an affair with the nurse during her IVF treatments.

The Story

After going through years of IVF treatments totaling more than $60,000, Leung says that her husband left her for their fertility nurse. And the real kicker? He told her he was leaving her the day AFTER she became pregnant. (Leung tragically miscarried the baby two weeks later.) What a sad and depressing story. For Po Leung, the best day of her life, the day she had waited on for years,and paid more than $60,000 for, was followed by the worst day of her life, the day she learned that her husband was leaving her for her fertility nurse.

“Enthralled With Her”

Leung’s husband, Stuart Westcott, was enthralled with the fertility nurse, Leung says. “I confronted him but he didn’t give her up right away. However he said she was the most special person, the kindest, most compassionate person he had ever met. He was enthralled.” Leung says that she feels extremely betrayed by not only the nurse, Wendy Shanks, but also the fertility clinic as a whole. When Leung complained about what had happened to the fertility clinic’s director, the director allegedly warned Shanks in order to protect her reputation, as well as the reputation of the clinic. So far, no comment from either Shank’s side, or the lawyer for the clinic’s director. Leung says that there is really no defense that they can use, since the issues can be proven in court.

The Lawsuit

Leung is suing the clinic for $400,000, and the suit alleges that the clinic did not protect Leung from the harm inflicted onto her by their employee, and after they found out about the situation, they didn’t report Shanks to the College of Nurses. The clinic did not take any disciplinary action against Shanks, either. Leung says that Shanks portrayed herself as happily married with two kids, and told the couple that her children were conceived using fertility treatments as well. She even told the couple that she and her husband were still paying off their loans from their fertility treatments. Po Leung says that she believes without a doubt that her miscarriage was caused by the stress and anguish over the news of the affair.
