Praise For Motherhood, Rescheduled: The New Frontier of Egg Freezing and the Women Who Tried It…
"A fascinating, well-researched account of uncharted medical advances poised to turn the dating landscape upside down, Motherhood, Rescheduled reads like a page-turner novel full of suspense, plot twists, humor, and heartbreak. What’s amazing is that it’s real. I cheered, I cried, and stayed up way too late wondering what would become of these women, then stayed up even later pondering the provocative questions their stories raise."
-Lori Gottlieb, author of The New York Times bestseller Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough
"Motherhood, Rescheduled is exactly the book my generation of women has needed. The option to delay parenthood is fantastically liberating, but with freedom comes the paradox of choice. With refreshing clarity and grace, Sarah Elizabeth Richards completely demystifies the social, emotional, and scientific complexities of egg freezing, arming the rest of us with the information we need to better plot our own lives. I only wish it had come along sooner."
-Kate Bolick, contributing editor for The Atlantic
"Sarah captures the anxiety of a generation of women caught between unparalleled opportunity and the limits of their own biology. Pausing the biological clock with egg freezing could be as important to this generation as the birth control pill was to the last. She makes a compelling case for using the technology as an acceptable and affirming family planning choice."
-Rachel Lehmann-Haupt, author of In Her Own Sweet Time: Unexpected Adventures in Finding Love, Commitment, and Motherhood
“Intriguing (and often funny)…. A thought-provoking, well-written story for women who worry about their declining fertility.”
“[Richards] writes movingly about the vicissitudes of online dating and the pain of the breakup of a loving relationship with an ambivalent partner, as well as the anguish many women feel when contemplating a childless future….A page-turner in which each of the stories is different but compelling.”
