Apple and Facebook wrong to offer 'egg freezing', says UK fertility expert
About the author: 

Apple and Facebook are offering to pay for female employees to have their eggs frozen - but it's a procedure that results in a live birth in just 8 per cent of cases, says the UK's leading fertility expert, Lord Robert Winston

Apple and Facebook are offering to pay for female employees to have their eggs frozen - but it's a procedure that results in a live birth in just 8 per cent of cases, says the UK's leading fertility expert, Lord Robert Winston.

The two technology giants are playing into the hands of commercial interests that are 'grossly overselling' techniques that have very little practical chance of producing a baby, he told a Birmingham University seminar recently.

He criticised the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority for being too lenient on the providers, who were over-promising the likely outcome. In fact, just 8 per cent of births result from fertility treatments from frozen eggs.
