E14: Transport Trauma

Recently two fertility clinics in Cleveland and San Francisco, announced they had storage tank failures and thousands of specimens, eggs, embryos, and sperm were lost in this tragedy. How do you safe guard your frozen specimens? Is it risky to transport your frozen assets? This episode explores the many possibilities involved when using your frozen eggs, how to mitigate the transport risks, and uncovers key details behind the scenes inside the fertility labs.

NY Times bestselling author, ghostwriter, blogger on website AdventuresWithTwins.com, and Forbes contributor MeiMei Fox tells her story about what happened when she was ready to use her frozen eggs. After moving to Los Angeles with the love of her life and attempting to naturally get pregnant but with no success, they finally decided it was time to use the 18 eggs she had frozen in 2009. She submitted a request to prepare transporting her eggs from the lab facility outside of San Francisco to her new clinic in Los Angeles. MeiMei goes on to explain how she became a mother to twins, what exactly happened to her eggs along the way, and what she wishes she would have known now looking back.

    I have been following the news updates about these fertility tank failures. Is this a normal thing to be worried about or is this really a rare occurrence? Thank you for your podcast. It is an amazing resource talking about the exact things in my head.

  2. Megan says:

    This is truly useful, thanks. I’ve been binge listening now non-stop.

  3. Mary says:

    How do we know if our lab will be safe and not mix up our eggs? How risky is it to move them and where is the best place to have the eggs stored?

    Woah! I’m really digging this pod site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it is very hard to get that “perfect balance” between personal and professional goals. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. Thank you for inspiring me. I learned so much and now feel better about moving my embryos/eggs.

    This podcast is incredible! You certainly know how to keep information amusing. Between your wit and your videos and these shows I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say and more than that how you presented it.
    Too cool!
