Couple Afraid Of FedEx Damaging Their Embryos Decide To Transport Them Themselves, Hilarity Ensues


There’s only so much to do with your little ones when they aren’t even born yet, but this couple have probably done it all. Samantha and Mickey Clark have had a special opportunity to spend quality family time with their embryos, and they hilariously went all in.

The Clarks went through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in order to get pregnant. “We knew I was going to have problems getting pregnant before we were married,” Samantha told Scary Mommy. “I was diagnosed with PCOS, endometriosis and had a few other health issues. So we chose not to have an expensive wedding ceremony and started actively pursuing adoption, foster care and infertility treatments.”

Fast forward some time, and the Clarks have to transport their embryos to a new clinic after moving. “They were going to mail our embryos via FedEx to a clinic closer to us. We had just watched several viral videos of FedEx drivers throwing packages over fences… so I said NO WAY!”

They started researching other possibilities. “Our embryologist said most couples take them themselves, so that’s what we chose.” However, instead of simply driving them to the new clinic, the Clarks made a few pit stops. “We were driving to pick them up and we started talking about how we should take photos with the embryos. We were laughing so hard we were crying. So when we picked them up, we just said okay let’s do it!”

Scroll down to check out what happened next, and don’t worry about the well-being of the embryos. Their embryologist assured the couple that the tank was safe for at least two days, and the Clarks took only 4 hours to transfer it.

Can you spot something unusual about this family photoshoot?
