When Rita Ora announced she was freezing her eggs at the age of 26, saying: ‘Why not put them away and then you never have to worry about it again?’, many were shocked by her brutally matter-of-fact approach to motherhood.
But she was merely taking advantage of modern reproductive techniques. Indeed, this week, fertility experts confirmed the practical wisdom of the singer’s actions.

These findings contradict the impression given by fertility clinics which don’t necessarily tell older women about the low chances of conceiving.
