In a March 21, 2016 interview with the Toronto Star, Rachel Lehmann-Haupt discusses In Her Own Sweet Time: Egg Freezing and the New Frontiers of Family.
A lot of people were telling me, “You should really put an update out.” Mostly because I made a big decision when I turned 40 — I decided to have a baby on my own as a single mom by choice.
