The Big Lie -Time is Not on Your Side

October 25, 2015

The Big Lie-Time is Not on your side from Toni Williams on Vimeo.

“Thinking you can have kids when you are ready is a flawed belief with devastating consequences,” says Tanya Selvaratnam on this episode of Brooklyn Savvy where we explore Advanced Reproductive Technologies.

The Big Lie author and advocate Tanya Selvaratnam examines the biological clock women face. Your chances of having children later in life are far less controllable than you are made to believe, Selvaratnam says. In a candid discussion with the Brooklyn Savvy women, age, fertility questions, and the modern day woman’s perception of childbearing are analyzed. Selvaratnam insists that the odds far outweigh the successes in medically facilitated pregnancies via IVF. So how reasonable is waiting till “sometime before 40”? How accurate are fertility company claims? Where is the place of government and insurance in all this? Find out more on this episode of Brooklyn Savvy.
