 The state government is weighing up changes to IVF law after a “secret son” embryo donor case revealed by Fairfax Media exposed loopholes in the legislation.

IVF Australia had facilitated the transfer of two embryos Natalie Parker donated to a Sydney woman. The woman is alleged to have faked the miscarriage of her donor-conceived baby so she didn’t have to honour an agreement to keep in contact with Ms Parker and her husband, the child’s genetic parents.

The woman told IVF Australia the embryo transfer had failed. She declined the clinic’s request to come in for a blood test to confirm the miscarriage.

It was only when Ms Parker discovered dated pictures of the woman with a baby son on Facebook that the alleged deception was uncovered. The recipient has now deleted her Facebook profile and cannot be contacted.

The Sun-Herald’s revelations of Ms Parker’s case sparked a NSW Health investigation, and a review of the ART Act.

The NSW Health investigation cleared IVF Australia, the clinic at the centre of the case, of any wrongdoing under the Assisted Reproductive Technology Act as it stands.

“NSW Health found IVF Australia had not breached their legislative obligations as set out in the current ART act,” a NSW Health spokeswoman said.

The department’s legislative review had identified areas for possible law reform, which “are now being considered”, according to a NSW Health spokeswoman. She would not provide further details.

“NSW Health is committed to ensuring that the quality of care offered to people accessing fertility treatment though ART services is of a high standard and is supportive of all parties,” the spokeswoman said.

In a letter emailed to Ms Parker, NSW Health acting deputy secretary Leanne O’Shannessy said Ms Parker had “highlighted the personal consequences of possible loopholes in the legislation governing embryo donation”.

“The Ministry of Health is considering options to address . . . possible loopholes in the system including the need for legislative change to close any such loopholes.”

Ms Parker said her case showed the existing law wasn’t strong enough to protect the rights of donor-conceived individuals. “I look forward to seeing changes that ensure the integrity of process,” she said.

It has been suggested that NSW follow Victoria’s lead and include an addendum on birth certificates stating the child was donor-conceived.

Ms Parker’s case has already prompted the IVF industry to overhaul its practices to ensure a similar situation does not occur in the future.

IVF clinics will now require women who use donor eggs, sperm or embryos to give a written undertaking to have a blood test to verify whether they fell pregnant. Any patient who fails to provide the results of a pregnancy blood test will be reported to state authorities.
