Why Freeze Your Eggs
Have you ever dreamed of becoming a mom? Images from our own childhood often serve as the basis of imagining ourselves as parents. Our senses come alive as we re-live the feelings of warmth, love and security in the arms of our parents. During role playing we imitated our own parents and rag dolls were our make believe babies. As a result of these memories, thoughts of parenthood are engrained in our collective memory at a conscious or subconscious level.
Welcome to the New Reality
Are you at a stage in your life where you can accomplish your goal of being a Mother? If you have ever thought of motherhood then you should also think about egg freezing to preserve your fertility.
Unlike past generations, women are waiting longer to start their families because they’re climbing the career ladder, completing higher education or haven’t found their life partner.
In today’s world, women are healthier and live longer thanks to increased awareness of nutrition, exercise and better lifestyle habits. However, most of these well -intended efforts have little effect on the health of their eggs.
The trend of delaying pregnancy toward the later years has shed new light on maternal age as a cause of infertility. In fact, the number of women having babies between the ages of 35 and 39 has jumped 150 percent since the 1970s according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national Vital Statistics Report.
Fortunately, egg freezing (human oocyte cryopreservation) offers women the possibility to preserve their fertility potential by harvesting robust eggs during the more favorable years and thawing them when a woman is ready for pregnancy in her personal and professional life.
