Planning an iui/ici with Coyote Midwifery?

We know that navigating the world of assisted fertility can be incredibly overwhelming and confusing. We want to do as much as we can to alleviate some of that stress. Below is a general outline of what you can expect with Coyote Fertility Care. We tailor our care to the individual, so remember this is just a guideline to give you an idea. 

​First, let's go over the basic steps:  

​1. choose the route you want to take. 

Before moving forward with insemination you must do an initial visit. Check out our offerings and pick the one that feels right for you. 

Comprehensive Consult

90-minute 1:1 Deep Dive

You’re ready. Let’s jump in. We want you to leave this visit feeling empowered and confident in interpreting your body’s signs of peak fertility. During our 1:1 Comprehensive Fertility Consult, you’ll work with a midwife to craft an individualized fertility plan based on your life and goals.

This is for you, if:

  • You (or your surrogate) have a uterus
  • You intend to use a sperm bank
  • You intend to use a known donor
  • You intend to inseminate with or without midwife assistance

Just Give Me My IUI

30-minute chat about logistics

Do you feel solid in your charting and cycle awareness? Maybe you’ve done this before? If you want to get straight to logistics and skip all the extra stuff, this appointment is for you. We will do a quick review of your health history before your visit but otherwise will stick to timing, sperm acquisition within your fertile window, and what to expect for your insemination.

This is for you, if:

  • You (or your surrogate) have a uterus
  • You have confirmed access to sperm
  • You do not desire fertility counseling

2. Request a spot in our calendar 

We offer insemination services 7 days a week and want to make sure we are at the ready when you call. In order to ensure our availability, we charge an on-call fee that covers your estimated ovulation window. This fee is non-refundable and must be paid at the start of each cycle.

3. Schedule your insemination

The actual IUI process is a simple procedure that can be done in our clinic or your home. We provide time for a detailed explanation of everything before it happens and ask that you let us know how we can make you feel safe and comfortable. You are always in charge!

4. Follow-ups & communication

Understanding bodies and fertility in the context of our busy lives is a dynamic process. This is why it can be important to touch base along the way to make sure we are doing everything we can to support you in building your family. ​​We offer ala carte follow-up visits with 15-min, 30-min, ​and 60-min options, and/or packages that include unlimited monthly messaging.
