Single Women

Recently we worked with the BBC on their egg freezing documentary. You can see their video here, and the audio version goes out on Radio 4 at 5pm today (Tuesday 19th March).

On International Women’s Day it’s a good opportunity for us as a clinic to reflect on how things have changed for women and their fertility choices. 

You may have seen the news about fertility experts and campaigners putting pressure on the government to change the law about the length of time women can store their frozen eggs. Currently, this storage time limit is ten years for women who freeze their eggs for social reasons.

Professor Nick Macklon, Medical Director of the London Women's Clinic, discusses the increase in women freezing their eggs as a "Plan B" on Sky News

"I know that some people assume that I wish I had a husband with me along the way but this just feels so normal for me. This is my baby and we are a little team of two."

"I was never treated any differently to a couple and never felt judged for being a single woman wanting a baby. My life feels complete now. Being a mum is the best job in the world."

"Having  a  child  on  my  own  is  without  a  doubt  the  most  challenging,  craziest  and  happiest  thing  I  have  ever  done."
