Egg Freezing, fertility's new frontier, provides women with the unprecedented opportunity to bank their eggs during their reproductive prime for future use. Learn more ab bout the egg freezing process, associated costs, success rates, as well as why more and more women are deciding to invest in an "insurance" policy for the option to have children - just not now.
Brigitte Adams is the founder of Eggsurance. She is passionate about getting the word out about egg freezing. Like many of you, Brigitte thought she would wait to have children. She had a busy career in tech marketing, had not met Mr. Right and, well, you know the story. When she finally looked into egg freezing she was almost over the cut off age at 38. She has said time and time again, “had I known then what I know now, I would have frozen my eggs much earlier.” Realizing that many women are in the same situation, Brigitte created Eggsurance as a safe and welcoming place to explore egg freezing and meet like-minded women.
Sarah Elizabeth Richards is a New York City-based journalist and the author of Motherhood, Rescheduled: The New Frontier of Egg Freezing and the Women Who Tried It, a narrative non-fiction book that chronicles the lives of four women who attempt to preserve their fertility by freezing their eggs (to be published by Simon & Schuster May 7, 2013).
