Feel happy for her, but it has negative consequences . . .

Response to Mom at 66 in Switzerland

 

I've read critics who would cheerfully cut off access to IVF (OE or DE) at ages 40, 45, and 50. I wouldn't bet that Olivier Irion, chief doctor at Geneva's University Hospital, quoted in the article, isn't one of them. Clinics treating women over 60 really stokes that public sentiment. I've mentioned that I've effectively lost access to my frosties b/c the Czech Republic imposed an upper age limit of 49 on fertility treatment. I seriously wonder whether the negative publicity in the wake of the NY Magazine article on older motherhood didn't contribute to that. Maggie (in VA)
