Insemination Services that Feel like Home

Mountain Midwifery Center is pleased to offer insemination services to families who desire a home-like environment and experience.  These services include midwifery support for both the preconception period and during the insemination itself if appropriate and desired – to provide a balance between clinical support and a home-like environment.

What sorts of insemination services does Mountain Midwifery Center offer?

Mountain Midwifery offers both ICI (intracervical insemination using known donor sperm) and IUI (intrauterine insemination using unknown donor sperm).  These services are available to folks interested in using donor sperm and insemination in the hopes of becoming pregnant.  This service is not appropriate for those who are working with infertility.

What is the process to obtain these services at MMC?

To create optimal timing for insemination, there are several steps:

  1. A preconception Gyn appointment is required for insemination services. A good medical history and a conversation about the next phase of fertility tracking are essential. This appointment will also address informed consent and the type of sperm sample to be used
  2. Clients will be expected to track their fertility using the Fertility Awareness Method for at least 3 months (we recommend Flowers Fertility for excellent information, guidance and support). This information will be reviewed at a second appointment (a 20-minute consult) and the next plan will be made. This plan will either include additional fertility tracking or a plan for insemination.
  3. At the appropriate time, clients will be inseminated twice in a 24-hour window. **Clients are responsible for obtaining and bringing their own sperm sample to the insemination** Inseminations will take place in the birth center – you are welcome to bring elements from your life to help make our center feel like home to you.
  4. Typically, no follow-up is necessary unless dictated by the medical history of the client. A well-timed home pregnancy test is adequate for most families. However, if you think you are pregnant, following up with a prenatal provider for pregnancy verification would be the next step.

How much does it cost?

Only the first appointment can be billed to insurance; the other visits must be paid for in full at the 20-minute clinic consult.  One cycle includes both a consult ($75) and the insemination itself ($350).  If the first cycle does not result in pregnancy, additional cycles will include both consult and insemination costs as well.

How do I get started?

Simply dial 303-788-0600 to make a Gyn preconception appointment.  It is very helpful for us to have previous Gyn records before this first visit.
