NBC Nightly News Features EggBanxx
EggBanxx.com, FertilityAuthority’s network of elite fertility doctors specializing in egg freezing, was featured on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams Friday evening.
On the segment titled, “Delaying Pregnancy Becomes New Normal”, anchor Brian Williams said, “Women are waiting longer to have children if they can afford to” and cited that in the last decade, there’s been a 35% increase among women [ages 40-44] having children for the first time and up 900% over the last 4 decades in women over 35 having their first child. The segment goes onto to acknowledge that, “a growing number of women are freezing their eggs at a younger age, [since it’s] no longer considered experimental”, adding that many call egg freezing, “insurance against an uncertain future”.
“But freezing eggs is expensive and rarely covered by health plans, the average cost for one round is $13,000, there’s also an annual storage fee; and the longer a woman waits, the less likely eggs will be healthy; that’s why companies like EggBanxx and others are cutting costs or offering payment plans to make freezing eggs affordable.”
With NBC Nightly News and its more than 9 million viewers, this is the kind of global awareness that egg freezing needs so that women can be confident about preserving their fertility. “We’re honored that NBC Nightly News choose to highlight our esteemed EggBanxx program. On the heels of this Mother’s Day weekend, we want to provide options to women who want to one day be mothers,” said Gina Bartasi, Founder and CEO of FertilityAuthority, and added, “with 60 doctors in 50 locations, we can provide her both options as well as convenience.”
