My name is Brigitte and I froze 11 eggs at age 39.
When I started my fertility journey in 2011, egg freezing was still in its infancy. There were no egg freezing specific blogs, websites or communities – zero, nada, zilch. Going through the egg freezing process alone was terrifying and isolating. And, I knew I was not alone. So, I decided to do something about it.
In May 2012, four months after freezing my eggs, I launched Eggsurance – the first egg freezing community and education site.
Since its inception, Eggsurance, like egg freezing, has gone through several iterations. However, Eggsurance’s guiding principle remains the same: Build a safe and welcoming egg freezing community for women to explore fertility preservation, meet like-minded women and share their stories.
