Why we need to support egg freezing?

Over two and a half year ago, I made the decision to freeze my eggs. Not only did I freeze my eggs, but I also documented my journey to share with others, as I felt it was something so many were unaware of, had myths about and that there was so much shame and stigma surrounding this procedure. I didn’t really think beyond making the documentary, I just did it because I felt it was something I could do to help others. Over two and a half years, I’m still talking about this subject, footage from my documentary is still being shown and it’s more relevant now than ever. I have received so many messages from women, thanking me for sharing my story, but also from women telling me they only wish they had frozen their eggs at a younger age, women who started this process maybe later in life or when it was too late. My heart goes out to them, but these messages also remind me how relieved I am about what I had done for my own future self and also continuing to promote this as an option to others.

This is why I still talk about this subject, because it’s still so important for women to know the facts.  So, I’m going to try and break it down for you as the reasoning as to why I believe women need to at least consider this as an option when they get to a certain age and why as a society we need to lift any shame and negative beliefs that surround it.

My egg freezing story (and my bloated belly full of follicles) once again has made a TV appearance, this time on Today Tonight Adelaide. I encourage you to check this one out and consider how egg freezing might play a role in your life or a role in the life of someone you love.
