Apple and Facebook will pay female employees up to $20,000 to help cover the cost of freezing their eggs.
The goal is to enable women who want to continue focusing on their careers without sacrificing their chance to have children later on.
Facebook recently began its program and that Apple will start paying employees who want to freeze their eggs in January.
Known as oocyte cryopreservation, egg freezing is a process by which a woman extracts and stores her eggs so that they can be reinserted into her uterus at a later date, allowing her to have children at a time when she might otherwise be infertile.
