I just ordered Sarah E. Richards’ recently published book: “Motherhood, Rescheduled: The New Frontier of Egg Freezing And The Women Who Tried It.” When I started my egg freezing journey I scoured the web for books on the subject. Nothing. Nada. Egg freezing was still in its infancy. Fast forward two years and there are now more than 11 million results on Google for “egg freezing.” It’s amazing to witness this relatively new assisted reproductive technology shifting from early to more mainstream adoption.
Although I haven’t read the book yet, I have read a few articles published by the author. (See links below). I admire Sarah’s dedication to discuss fertility education and share real women’s egg freezing experiences. She is helping to arm today’s woman with critical information to make informed choices about her reproductive options.
Based on the following review, I am anxiously awaiting my copy from Amazon.
“Motherhood, Rescheduled is exactly the book my generation of women has needed. The option to delay parenthood is fantastically liberating, but with freedom comes the paradox of choice. With refreshing clarity and grace, Sarah Elizabeth Richards completely demystifies the social, emotional, and scientific complexities of egg freezing, arming the rest of us with the information we need to better plot our own lives. I only wish it had come along sooner.” (Kate Bolick, contributing editor for The Atlantic)
