Egg freezing explained with Ed Coats

On today's podcast, I am joined by Ed Coats, a prominent consultant in reproductive medicine and surgery, currently serving as the medical director of The Evewell, a private fertility clinic in London. With 18 years of experience delivering babies, Ed is passionate about enhancing education and access to fertility preservation and reproductive technology. In our insightful conversation, we delve into the intricacies of egg freezing, an aspect of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) where eggs are preserved in a vault rather than being fertilised and placed back inside the body. As I personally navigate through the egg freezing process, with my own retrieval just 20 hours away, I plan to share my journey in a dedicated episode, reflecting on the profound impact and gratitude I feel for the scientific advancements that empower women to take control of their fertility.

Ed's expertise sheds light on the egg freezing process and the broader landscape of fertility preservation. In a world where information on fertility is often scarce, dedicating episodes to this crucial topic on the Unwind podcast aims to provide valuable insights and education. Exploring fertility in depth has been a source of comfort for me, especially in my 30s, as it allows me to make informed decisions that safeguard my future and brings a sense of peace. While this content may deviate slightly from our usual programming, I hope you find it both useful and valuable.
