Diana Hayden used her frozen eggs and delivered Arya Hayden Dick last year. You'll be amazed to see what this miracle baby looks like now!

In 2005, former Miss World Diana Hayden made a decision that would change her life forever. She froze her eggs after doctors diagnosed her with endometriosis (a medical condition that deterred her from becoming a mother).

Hayden first froze her eggs in 2005 when she was 32, then repeated the process with Dr Nandita Palshetkar, between October 2007 and March 2008, freezing close to 16 eggs.

But in 2014, she married Collin Dick and just two years later, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Arya Hayden Dick. Today, Arya is a healthy one-year-old and a living testimony that egg freezing not only benefits the mum, but also does no harm to the baby.

“Delivering a baby at 42 is something amazing”

Following the delivery, Hayden’s gyneacologist, Dr Nandita Palshetkar, reportedly said, “It was a concept being adopted very rarely by working or professional women who do not want to be mother at the age of 30 or something. But delivering a baby at 42 (years of age) is something amazing and we feel extremely excited.”

“Birth of Hayden’s daughter would be a big boost to working women that egg freezing really works and could be of help to them, especially to Indian women who often juggle between career and the ticking biological clock,” she added.

And now after one year, it is clear that the doctors were absolutely right. Technology enabled Diana Hayden to deliver a super healthy girl who has become a source of happiness to her parents. Here’s proof!

Of course, this decision not only helped Hayden enjoy motherhood at the time she wanted, but also gave her a window to pursue her professional dreams.

A career woman need not think about her biological clock

Speaking to a leading media daily, Hayden says, “A career woman need not think about her biological clock and get pressurized into getting married earlier than she wants to or have a baby when she isn’t ready.”

As we mentioned earlier, in opting for this procedure, Hayden joined the league of many Indian women who are now opting for frozen embryo transfer for lifestyle reasons and not medical conditions.

Let’s not forget that the process of egg freezing is fast gaining popularity with urban couples in India, given its cost-efficiency and a positive result graph.

Here’s why you should consider freezing eggs at 30

Dr Shobha Gupta, medical director and IVF specialist at Mother’s Lap IVF Centre, Delhi, spoke to theIndusparent and explains that freezing eggs at the age of 30 is a novel idea and one that can reap great results.

“While at the age of 40, there is no guarantee that a woman will become pregnant even with IVF as her eggs are of far poorer quality. On the other hand, if she freezes her eggs at the age of 30 and then has them re-inserted ten years later, the chances of a baby are three to five times greater,” Dr Gupta points out.

As for the cost, egg freezing could cost anything between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000.
