Through her personal story, Rachel Lehmann-Haupt, author of In Her Own Sweet Time: Egg Freezing of the New Frontiers of Family, describes the experiences of getting her eggs frozen, explains the pros and cons of this choice, the cultural stir it has created, and the challenges both men and women are facing when it comes balancing our careers and desires to start families. She will be joined by Dr. Philip Chenette, the Medical Director of Pacific Fertility Center. Dr. Chenette is one of the top fertility doctors in America and an expert on egg freezing and helping women get pregnant over the age of 40.
