'I Froze My Eggs': Sarah Elizabeth Richards Discusses Her Experience On HuffPost Live

Would you spend $50,000 to preserve the option of having kids?

Sarah Elizabeth Richards, author of "Motherhood, Rescheduled," joined Dena Takruri on HuffPost Live this week to discuss her experiences freezing her eggs.

Richard froze about 70 eggs while she was between the ages of 36 and 38, which set her back $50,000.

"I know many women don't have the option to freeze that many," she told Takruri. "...I made some choices. Any money that might be put towards a wedding, I used to freeze my eggs."
