Egg freezing free for womenWorking women who want to postpone motherhood can have their eggs frozen for free - if they agree to give half to infertile couples.

Egg freezing, which is generally restricted by doctors to cancer patients made infertile by chemotherapy, is increasingly being made available for non-medical reasons.

Yet its £5,000 price tag is prohibitive for many would-be mothers.

The Bridge Centre clinic in London, however, is offering free egg freezing if women agree to give half the eggs to infertile couples.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
