As more companies are offering egg freezing benefits, egg freezing is becoming more accessible. So why not do egg freezing?  Perhaps you’ve heard some concerns surrounding egg freezing. A lot of which is wrong.

We’ve had over 100 babies born from frozen eggs, including those from patient’s own eggs and donor eggs.
