The Stork: Helping Couples Conceive #TheStork

*This post is sponsored by The Motherhood and The Stork. All opinions are my own. The Stork Helping Families conceive naturally

Approximately 7.3 Million Couples In The U.S. Have Difficulty Conceiving. Wow. That is ONE in SIX couples! Crazy to think about :/ But I know it all too well! It took me almost 3 years to conceive my third baby. It was painstakingly tiring and depressing…

EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH. Staring at that dang pregnancy test and nada. Ya, that was HARD. So hard on me 🙁 We had many IUI’s to no avail, I even starting injecting myself and taking pills (Clomid) to help with ovulating just perfectly so I could have that IUI. We traveled about an hour and 1/2 away and almost all the times, it was with our other two kids in tow. The wait was not fun for any of us (which was usually about 2-3 hours tops) and it was EXPENSIVE.

Man, if we could have totally not done the IUI’s, that would have been nice. But we did and that is that! We did, however (obviously), conceive our third baby on the month we took off, go figure…

The Stork

Had we been able to just stay home and have better services/products available to us to use at home, that would have been so much easier and less stressful for us! With The Stork, you CAN. Oh this would have been such a wonderful option for us!!!!

What Is The Stork???

The Stork uses cervical cap insemination for at-home insemination. Physicians have used cervical cap insemination as a treatment for infertility since the 1950’s. The Stork allows for you to use this same process in the privacy of your home.

The product, which includes a cervical cap in a condom-like silicone sheath, is used to collect semen into a cervical cap and then delivers the cap to the outside of the cervix as an aid to conception. The cervical cap is used to place the semen near the cervical os for 4-6 hours (the cervical os is the passage between the vaginal cavity and the uterus) where it then enters and travels through the uterus to the fallopian tubes where fertilization occurs. The cervical cap allows for the female to return to her normal activities right after placement.

The Stork Features Trying To Conceive

This is something we DEFINITELY would have considered using! The Stork is priced at only $210.00 a cycle as opposed to the $1,000-5,000 on the IUI or $12,400-20,000 a cycle on IVF! That is HUGE for those of us that are trying SO hard to conceive, but just can’t 🙁

 Because The Stork is more affordable than the other options, many physicians are prescribing couples to do this process three times during the woman’s most fertile time.

 Benefits of The Stork:

• Proven technique: Physician technique now available for use in the privacy of home
• Safe: FDA Authorized prescription product. Non-­‐reusable device
• Natural: Drug-­‐free product that requires no drugs
• Non-­‐invasive: Requires no injections or surgery
• Easy–to-­‐Use: Condom-­‐like in collection, tampon-­‐like in delivery
• Cost-­‐effective: Compared to “next-­‐step” treatment options

Purchasing The Stork is quite simple. You just contact your healthcare provider for a prescription (doctor, midwife or nurse practitioner), purchase The Stork from the website, choose from one device or a one-month-supply of three individually packaged Stork devices. They are only $79.99 for ONE or $210 for the one month supply.  Then submit the copy of the prescription through email, fax or mail for verification and then once verified, The Stork is shipped directly to your doorstep via their two shipping options: overnight or ground. That is it. So much simpler (and LESS expensive!!!!) than dragging two busy kids down to the doctors and sitting in the waiting room for hours! Ugh.

Now though insurance does NOT cover the cost of The Stork today, The Stork’s longterm goal is that this will be available to everyone over the counter and to remove the prescription process. So that is something to keep in mind! If your physician has never heard of The Stork, you can download a brochure to take to them! Makes it SO much easier!

  3. Thank the Lord I do not have to worry about having this problem anymore, I am in the hot flash stage of life now. But I did just find out that I am going to be a Grandmother again! We had our first grandchild last March. Last nights new news is suppose to be ( TWINS ) 🙂 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing about this sensitive topic. We have never struggled to conceive, but I know other couples who have/are. There needs to be more awareness and discussion especially of products like these!

  5. This is a really interesting product. Great for anyone that needs it.

  6. Tracie Trump says:

    I love this product concept and the fact that its non invasive!

  7. This looks both ingenious and interesting! I too had a difficult time trying to conceive (kids number one and three are Clomid babies) and now that our family is complete, I have a few friends going through this pain and struggle. I am going to share this post with them!

  8. I can’t imagine the journey to try and conceive and nada. I’m so glad you had your beautiful baby boy though. It is great there are other more affordable options out there now.

  9. Anything that is cost effective and private is a great thing, since I know couples struggling with infertility go through so much and the cost is huge.
