Emma Slater, the Dancing with the Stars pro, recently opened up about her decision to freeze her eggs
Amid her divorce from Sasha Farber, Slater explained that freezing her eggs is about taking control of her future and preserving her options. She shared her journey on Instagram, attending the OVA Egg Freezing Specialty Center in Chicago to prepare for the procedure.
Slater expressed her support for women who choose to freeze their eggs, emphasizing the importance of respecting each person’s reasoning and choices. She acknowledged that it takes a lot of thought, courage, and consideration, but ultimately, freezing her eggs provides her with peace of mind.
Initially, Slater had concerns about sharing her story and feared judgment
However, she overcame her fears and decided to openly and honestly talk about this important topic. She believes that discussing egg freezing should be encouraged and normalized.
On the day before her scheduled procedure, Slater thanked the staff at the OVA clinic for their kindness, thoughtfulness, and support throughout her journey. She expressed gratitude for their clear explanations, caring phone calls, reminder texts, and full communication.
Slater‘s decision to freeze her eggs was influenced by her recent appearance on Nick Viall’s Viall Files podcast
She discussed how the timing of having children played a significant role in her divorce from Farber. She explained that they were potentially at different places in their lives regarding starting a family. Slater wants to have children but doesn’t want to delay Farber’s path to parenthood. She emphasized that this decision was not about Farber but rather about the desire to have kids.
Slater and Farber got married in 2018 after years of dating
While their separation became public in August 2022, the legal date of separation was confirmed to be April 1, 2022. However, despite their divorce, Slater mentioned that she and Farber still remain close, with no animosity between them.
Overall, Slater‘s decision to freeze her eggs reflects her desire to take control of her future and ensure that she has options available to her. She hopes that by sharing her story, she can support and encourage other women who may be considering the same path.
