    Egg Freezing in the Modern World

    Egg Freezing in the Modern World

    This week, Colton sits down with Lauren Makler, Co-Founder and CEO of Cofertility, a company that gives women the opportunity to freeze their eggs for free when they donate half of the eggs retrieved to a family who can’t otherwise conceive.
    After founding Uber Health and following a rare disease diagnosis, Lauren's personal fertility journey inspired her to create Cofertility, a human-first fertility ecosystem rewriting the egg freezing and egg donation experience. Cofertility’s Freeze by Co platform makes egg freezing more accessible while its Family by Co platform provides intended parents seeking donor eggs with a value-aligned alternative without cash compensation.

Colton helped me Come Out

So excited for this podcast! Colton’s journey certainly hasn’t been a traditional, mundane one but rather a tumultuous inspiring one that reflects so much of mine. I didn’t watch The Bachelor or know who Colton was until his documentary came out on Netflix. His journey helped me to find the courage to come out at the age of 31. It’s been a crazy journey since and I too want kids with my partner one day. So inspired by Colton’s self-aware journey and excited to see this next chapter!

Disappointing

I was intrigued and was excited to hear different perspectives on the journey to parenthood but so far have been disappointed in these episodes. So far it is mostly just interviews with companies who are trying to sell you a service. Glimpses of insight and science, but mostly long ads and sometime straight up “wellness” myths.

Show Plays Into Trans-Erasing Binaries

Colton I hope you read this and are open to the feedback because I loved that you mentioned you’re still learning. This is someone in your community who is trying to educate you so you can use your platform well.

My review is that I love Colton. I know he’s got a sketchy history but being extremely closeted does create mental health issues and anyone saying he hasn’t owned up to that hasn’t payed attention. Having said that, despite his genuine authenticity - which I love - he doesn’t seem to have made any growth towards decolonizing his heteronormative ways of thinking about family. Gus Kenworthy explained to Colton on Coming Out Colton what cisgender meant, and yet Colton continues to talk about biological parenting as being about “men” or “women.” The trans and non-binary community have quite a lot to say about gender-less parenting as well as gender identity and body parts so I’m just not interested in someone’s platform who can’t navigate both fields. Even in the first episode the trivia game was based off gender stereotypes of who’s going to change more diapers, who’s going to do what. That stuff is navigated situationally between two people based on capacity and energy and has nothing to do with one or the other. Like, it’s a fun game to play based off excitement about the future, but it’s red flags to me that the show has got nothing to do with parenting style etc. How to navigate a homophobic, cisgender privileged system as a queer couple who wants kids. To wit, what about adoption? Adoption isn’t even on the table? So many queer people face inordinate challenges through adoption. Also the font for the social media account of Daddyhood has “captioning” that is not at all focused on what visually impaired folx need. It’s too big and it’s too flashy and it’s too quick.
