Egg Freezing

Have you been hearing all about egg freezing lately?

Apple is doing it for their employees and so are facebook. There is so much publicity now about social egg freezing! But what does it all really mean?

Hello! I’m Dr. Sonya Jessup and I work here at Demeter as gynaecologist and IVF specialist. I’m from New Zealand and did all my study over there before moving to Australia to practice and start my family. But currently my “baby” so to speak is all about egg freezing. I’m so excited about what Demeter can offer and look forward to moving forward with this program!

Until only recently, the ability of scientists to freeze and thaw eggs to make babies was quite limited. Today, using “snap freezing” we are able to safely freeze and thaw eggs with excellent survival rates, which means more embryos and more babies.





















Dr Jessup is incredibly interested in egg freezing

Here at Demeter our scientists have a great deal of experience with thawing eggs created by patients and egg donors, and are very confident in our ability to get great outcomes.

Demeter boasts significantly cheaper costs for incredibly experienced staff and depending on a number of factors you may be entitled to Medicare rebate. These factors include some of the following:

  • Medical reasons for freezing
  • Local anesthetic
  • Private insurance

When we thaw frozen eggs from egg donors in their 20’s, we are constantly amazed at the high quality of the resulting embryos and the extremely high pregnancy rates. There certainly is a lot to be said for using young eggs!

If you have any questions I would love to see you in either of my offices, Hurstville or Liverpool.
