Emily Grossman


My name is Dr. Emily Grossman and I live in London. I’m an expert in molecular biology and genetics, with a Double First in Natural Sciences from Queens’ College Cambridge and a PhD in cancer research. I also trained and worked as an actress and I now combine my skills and passions as a science broadcaster, writer and educator. At 38 years old, I decided to freeze my eggs to give myself more options to become a parent in the future. I learned about egg freezing in my mid 30s when I attended a talk at the Cheltenham Science Festival called, “The Fertility Time Bomb” in which fertility experts expressed their concerns about the increasing number of women leaving it later to have kids. From the age of about 36, the pressure I felt to have a child began to get really intense, along with the fear that I wouldn’t meet the right person in time. On advice from my doctor, I decided to do the whole cycle three times, to get as many eggs as possible. I’m really proud of what I’ve done and feel a sense of empowerment and relief, and an accompanying decrease in stress levels. Thanks to modern science we have the opportunity to take a look at our biological clocks and side-step them for long enough to give ourselves a chance of motherhood that otherwise might not have been possible.
