Sarah Elizabeth Richards
How would you live your life if you could stop your biological clock? If you could finally be free of the “baby panic” that has tormented an entire generation of women who postponed motherhood to pursue degrees or careers? Would you date better? Marry later? Relax more? Journalist Sarah Elizabeth Richards follows four women who attempt to preserve their fertility through the groundbreaking science of egg freezing.
Motherhood Rescheduled: The New Frontier of Egg Freezing and the Women Who Tried It is a first-of-its-kind account of what happens to women after they freeze their eggs. Do they benefit from extra time? Do they make better decisions about men and mating? Finally, do their frozen eggs help them have babies years later when their natural fertility is gone? In a fascinating, fast-paced non-fiction book that reads like a novel, the author tackles these deeply human dilemmas – while examining the controversial science and social consequences of older motherhood.
