Egg Freezing Technique Could Be a Game Changer for Would-Be Parents
Soon after Julie and Bill VanDerworp got married in 1993, they started trying to have a baby. Although she was 27 and he was 30, the young couple was unable to conceive a child. Eventually they tried fertility drugs and procedures. Still, no baby. As the years passed, they tried conceiving with an egg donor. But it wasn't until they turned to a donor whose eggs had been frozen with new technology that she finally got pregnant. Late last year, after spending nearly $200,000 and trying for more than a decade, the VanDerworps gave birth to a son they named Kent.
