‘Af­ter a friend mis­car­ried sev­eral times, she en­cour­aged me to get my eggs checked. At the time i was  and healthy, so when the re­sults re­vealed my eggs were aged 40, i was shell-shocked. i re­alised egg freez­ing was the an­swer, but when i sat down and looked at the cost i knew it would take me at least a year to save that, but i couldn’t wait. then my mum and sis­ter of­fered to pay as a christ­mas present, i was over­whelmed – it meant i could start the process straight away. i ended up hav­ing 10 eggs to freeze – more than my doc­tor thought i’d be able to – and i’m so re­lieved. i’ve ba­si­cally been gifted with the chance of hav­ing a baby and that’s worth ev­ery­thing to me.’
