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.

“We both always wanted children,” the Clarks told Bored Panda. They 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 said. “I was diagnosed with PCOS, endometriosis and had a few other health issues” The couple chose not to have an expensive wedding and started actively pursuing adoption, foster care and infertility treatments. “We were prepared to open any door that God led us to.”

Fast forward some time, and the Clarks have to transport their embryos to a new clinic after moving across the state. “It is very common for couples to transport the embryos themselves, otherwise FedEx or UPS will deliver them. I didn’t trust the mail system after seeing several viral videos of packages being thrown over fences!”

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 to take a few amusing photos. “We did the photoshoot on a whim. It was something we were joking about on the way to pick them up. Like, ‘How funny would that be…’ Then it just took off!”

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. “The box was perfectly still for every shot! It wasn’t ever just pushed down a slide, haha.” The couple said that coming up with ideas was actually really easy. “It’s literally the image you have in your head when you think about parenting. We even had some potty training ones but they somehow got lost! They were SOOO funny!”

Can you spot something unusual about this family photoshoot?
