She is 44 and single, but journalist Sarah still dreams of having a child, while TV producer Susanah, 38, is waiting for her younger boyfriend to be ready.To keep their hopes alive, these New York women have spent tens of thousands of dollars on freezing their eggs in a practice that has become increasingly popular.Sarah Elizabeth Richards was one of the first to take advantage of the technique, which the American Society for Reproductive Medicine considered experimental until 2012 .She froze her eggs eight times between the ages of 36 and 37, first in Canada where it was cheaper, and then in New York.She has written a book called "Motherhood Rescheduled: the New Frontier of Egg Freezing and the Women Who Tried it" and said putting aside her eggs gave her a "profound sense of relief".She knows her chances are slim but still hopes to have a child in the next two years by thawing the eggs and having in-vitro fertilization, which would cost thousands of dollars more.
