Seeking interview participants who've frozen their eggs or considered freezing Expand / Collapse

6/20/2016 1:33 PM
Mary Patrick and Eliza Brown, doctoral students in the Department of Sociology at New York University, are conducting in-depth interviews with women who have frozen their eggs or are considering freezing their eggs.
We plan to investigate how women who freeze their eggs navigate uncertainty and incongruence among different plans, projects, and timelines in their lives, including childbearing, romantic partnership, career trajectories, and the timelines of their peers.

In the interview, we will ask questions about how women learned about egg freezing, made the decision to freeze their eggs, and talk about egg freezing with their friends and family and with prospective partners. We will also ask general questions about their romantic and professional history and their plans for the future.

Information collected during these interviews will be confidential, and each participant will be assigned a pseudonym to protect her identity.

The interviews will last, on average, between one and two hours. Interviews will take place in person at a time and place convenient for the participant. Many of the women we've interviewed have found the experience therapeutic, as it provides a value-free interaction to talk about their experiences and plans for the future.

Participants are automatically entered into a raffle for a new Apple iPad Pro. Our study is restricted to women living or working in the New York City metro area.

If you have questions or you are interested in participating in the study, please contact Mary Patrick at or at (203) 559-6033 or Eliza Brown at or at (847) 946-2263.
