My name is Alison Fyfe. I’ve always known I’ve wanted to be a mother. When people asked me growing up, what do you want to be, I consistently answered with whichever profession was inspiring me at the time, but quickly added, “…and a great mom.”
Driven by experiences, I’ve lived in different cities, worked at great companies and challenged myself with post-graduate studies. But dating and relationships have always been equally as important as those adventures… and I’ve had some amazing boyfriends along the way.
I realized I was starting to jump into relationships and automatically skip ten steps ahead trying to map out our life plan. Rather than relishing in the moments of getting to know someone new, I found myself caught up in a timeline. I decided to focus on what I could control and decided to freeze my eggs knowing that one day, whether I find that partner or don’t, I can pursue my dream of having children.
The experience became so much more than just a weight lifted off my shoulders. I felt empowered. I was also inspired to share my story with others to help bring a stronger (and louder) voice to the broader topic of women’s fertility health and the options we have today. To read more about my story and check out my blog called Frozen Please.

My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different web address and I’m so glad I found you. Thought I might check things out. I like what I see so I am just following you. Look forward to checking out your web page repeatedly. Love these stories and interviews of women. Nice place to support each other.
Ah Eva I am so thrilled you’re loving these interviews and I was able to be a part of it. Absolutely a community that is much needed and a topic that needs to be discussed a lot more often.
This site was just so relevant!! Exactly what I am dealing with. Finally something which helped me. Appreciate it!
Of course Renee! I’d love to hear your story and please, let me know if I can support at all!
I really like what you have to say. I have learned significantly from these women testimonials. This can be really a tremendous website.
So glad you think so! We look forward to hearing more from you and thank you for being a part of the conversation!
Have you considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have your blog centered on the same information. I would really love to get you share some stories/information. I realize my audience would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, you may want to shoot me an e-mail.
I would be totally open to that! Feel free to reach out to me! [email protected]
I enjoy looking through a post that may make people think. Also, many thanks for making it possible for me to comment! Please keep interviewing other women. I like hearing their stories.
You are my inspiration, I have blogged only occasionally but love your videos and writing on this site … I like this quote :). “He who controls the past, commands the future. He who commands the future, conquers the past.” by George Orwell. Ali you are very inspiring.
Hello, i always take the time to check your blog posts here in the early hours, a break in my day, or because i like to find out more and more info about freezing my eggs. I’m just scared to move forward right now and wonder who I should talk to help me. Can you help me with that?
Hey! I plan to share your blog with my zynga group. There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please keep posting more stories as I love watching them. Many thanks.
I’ve recently found your website and the info and resources you offer have helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work.
Followed your blog awhile ago and loved it. I’ll be starting my cycle in July and have already used your wisdom inn part of my process. I’m 45, so we have some differences, but feel good that I can have some control over my fertility. I’ve also used your insight to educate my 23 and 21 year old, career minded daughters about egg preservation.
