Chalfont, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2014 -- Companies like Facebook and Apple always seem to be at the forefront of not only their respected industries, but also at the forefront of new business practices. In their latest workplace revolution, these companies are now covering cryopreservation for women, a service conducted at Pennsylvania Reproductive Specialists. This coverage has created a controversy between those in support of it and those who see it as a way of encouraging women to put off pregnancy.
While egg freezing does allow women to save healthy eggs until later in life, it does seem like a stretch to say companies are offering the coverage with the intent of getting extended value from female employees. Is it such a radical idea that big business cares about the overall well-being of its employees? The doctors at Pennsylvania Reproductive Specialists, a leader in fertility clinics in Philadelphia, think not.
For many women, the procedure on average will cost $10,000-$12,000 and be too expensive for them to afford. With companies' healthcare covering the costs, more women would be interested in working for a business that has all aspects of women's health in mind.
There are a variety of reasons a woman may want or require egg freezing such as cancer treatment that may damage the egg supply or they want to find the right partner to join them in raising a child. Whatever the reason, it is a more than generous offering from these companies. It has the potential to become an industry standard if it can withstand the backlash from those who find it to be insulting to women.
For those interested in cryopreservation and would like to consult a fertility doctor near Philadelphia, visit Pennsylvania Reproductive Specialists online or call 215-822-8400 today.
