Egg Freezing on Discovery Health’s “Deliver Me” : It’s a Family Affair
Check out Dr. Jain freezing Dr.Hill’s eggs on the Discover Channel’s hit show “Deliver Me”, brought to you through Discovery Health!
In July of 2008, Discovery Health’s Deliver Me shows Dr. Allison Hill freezing her eggs. She goes to see Dr. John Jain, who happens to be not only the father of her two children, but one of the leading experts in egg freezing. Many women are choosing to freeze their eggs, even into their late thirties, in order to keep their options open for the future, and for Dr.Hill, she feels this is a back-up plan.
Dr.Jain was happy to do it, saying he believes in the technology, and even though it’s not a guarantee, he thinks it’s a good option. Once they agree to a plan, Allison begins her daily injections to stimulate egg production and after 2 weeks she is ready for the egg retrieval. Dr.Jain takes one last measurement and they’re ready. Allison is now on the table looking up instead of the other way around. The retrieval goes smoothly with 23 eggs retrieved – a great number to freeze for later use, when and if she decides to create a family with someone later on in life.
