4. The Magnifying Glass

Freezing Time

Society & Culture

The emotional impact of egg freezing hits this week thanks to a counselling session that forces me to go deep into how I really feel about putting myself through this process. Brace yourself, there are tears as the therapist and I discuss past relationships, and the fact that freezing doesn’t guarantee a baby down the line. But in good news, my period finally arrives, which prompts an excited call to the fertility clinic.

'In Her Own Sweet Time: Egg Freezing and the New Frontiers of Family' by Rachel Lehmann-Haupt is available on Amazon:

Freezing Time is written and produced by Hannah Varrall and Sophia Money-Coutts, and created by OffScript.
