47: Should You Freeze Your Eggs? Here’s Why, How, and My Journey So Far…
As promised: Zuri is back with a fun solo episode full of life updates and answers to some of your burning questions — including one about (gasp!) her relationship status.
Are you wanting to buy more time, while you consider your fertility options? In today’s episode, Zuri dives into what exactly “egg freezing” is… and shares the research, statistics, and basics of the process with you. Plus, Z opens about her personal journey + thoughts on freezing her eggs; why she first considered it; and whether or not she’s done it yet.
Why might you consider freezing your eggs? What happens once they’re retrieved? What’s the likelihood of this journey leading to the reality of motherhood? Zuri’s got answers for you!
Finally — Zuri wraps up her one-on-one episode with you by answering listener questions… including her thoughts on hooking up with someone when you share a mutual ex; how to stop fear from getting in your way; and if Zuri is single or in a relationship (and what she’s learned about privacy).
So get cozy, sip a little something and enjoy this fun, intimate (and informative) episode with Z!
