Journalist Sarah Elizabeth Richards thought she could step away from the panic of her ticking biological clock and postpone motherhood by freezing her eggs. She spent nearly $50,000, but says it was the best investment she ever made. We talk with Richards and a fertility specialist about the benefits and risks of freezing eggs, the hefty price tag and what it means for women to delay motherhood. Do you have questions about freezing eggs? What would make you consider doing it?

Host: Judy Campbell

  • Diane Tober, medical anthropologist and associate director of the Center for Genetics and Society in Berkeley
  • Marcelle Cedars, professor and director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at UCSF
  • Sarah Elizabeth Richards, journalist and author of "Motherhood, Rescheduled: The New Frontier of Egg Freezing and the Women Who Tried It"
