Bachelor's Whitney Bischoff opens up about her fertility decision (VIDEO)
The Bachelor's leading lady Whitney Bischoff has found her perfect man in Chris Soules, and she has ensured that if the couple ever wants to have kids, it's going to be a possibility.
During Bischoff's recent interview with Good Morning America, she opened up about something very personal — her decision to freeze her eggs.
Referring to her decision as an "insurance policy," Bischoff explained why she made the decision, although she hopes she'll never have to use it.
"Well, I mean, the hope is that you don't have to use them. You know?" she said. "I mean, that's the whole point of an insurance policy. You don't ever want to have to use it. But if you need it, that's when, it's there."
Bischoff certainly knows a thing or two about fertility. She works at aParent IVF laboratory in Chicago, Illinois, where she is part of a fertility team that helps with the conception of more than 30,000 babies that have been conceived using the latest egg freezing techniques.
Speaking of the decision she made two years ago, Bischoff said, "I just felt it would be silly of me not to take the opportunity when it was handed to me."
She also knows that as she ages, so do her eggs, and after seeing people's disappointment firsthand, she made sure she would not take any chances.
"You're seeing it every single day firsthand, and you hear patients say, 'I wish I would have known. I wish someone would have told me,'" she added.
Could this mean there will be little Whitneys and Chrises running around in the near future? It's definitely an option.
