NEW YORK (September 30, 2014) – A new book, released on September 30, 2014, fills a previously unmet need in the publishing space by offering women a step-by-step informational guide on egg freezing. With an easy-to-read, straightforward approach, “Egg Freezing for Every Woman” explores whether egg freezing is the right move for the reader, how to find funding to pay for the procedure and what to expect throughout the process. The book is available now on Amazon.com in paperback and ebook.
The author, Stephanie Stark, decided to create the book after discovering a lack of information about the practicalities of what women can expect when undergoing this procedure. Stark explains, “I wished this book existed when I froze my eggs. I spent so much time researching the process and I wanted to help other women going through the same experience”.
“Egg Freezing for Every Woman” begins by addressing the basic question: should you freeze your eggs? It dives head-first into the many factors involved in helping women answer this question, discussing funding options, finding the best clinic, how to prepare your body, the day of egg retrieval and physical recovery. The guide then finishes with first-hand accounts of women who have gone through the treatment process and provides resources where women can find additional information.
The book comes from New York City based publishing company Potboiler, LLC, led by former Google manager Jeff Gillis. “Stephanie offers easy-to-read, practical, firsthand answers and accounts about egg-freezing, a life-changing process that is now safe, widely available and within reach for many women,” said Gillis. “Learning about it can revolutionize the way women approach their relationships, careers and the biological aspect of their life.”
“Egg Freezing for Every Woman: What to Expect, How to Pay for it, and Other Considerations” is available beginning on September 30, 2014 via Amazon, Apple iBooks and Barnes & Noble.
