The DIY guide to the birth of a child: single mother becomes viral with the TikTok video and shows EXACTLY how you can carry out your own fertilization "without a man or a doctor" with donor sperm in the mail order business
- Single mother Dani Morin from Newport Beach, California shared a TikTok video
- Reveals how women can get donor sperm at home
- It was explained that it was about finding a sperm bank and using a syringe at home
A pregnant mother has gone viral on TiKTok. A video shows women exactly how to inseminate at home.
California-based Dani Morin, who used the method herself, said that women can use the house insemination procedure with mail order sperm from a donor bank, syringe, and menstrual disc that they bought at a local drug store.
The video, which was shared last month, was viewed more than eight million times and received more than 1.2 million likes. The majority of viewers praised Dani for sharing her story and said she was "inspiring" and "really helpful".
Viral sensation: Pregnant Dani Morin shared a video on TikTok, explaining how women can get semen from a donor bank's mail order at home
Dani from California said a sperm bottle cost $ 800 plus $ 200 to ship. The sperm was released in a cryotank on the right, in which frozen biological material is stored
However, medical experts have warned that complications can occur if fertilization is done at home and not in a fertility clinic.
This includes less accurate tracking of the ovulation cycle and possible problems with the sperm.
In the video titled DIY Making A Baby, Dani recommended taking fertility supplements first and checking with a financial advisor whether you are definitely able to have a baby.
Then she found a sperm bank. A vial costs around $ 800 and postage costs $ 200, although prices vary from state to state and vary significantly in the UK. For example, sperm from the London Sperm Bank costs around £ 950.

The sperm was delivered to Dani in a cryotank, which stores frozen biological material.
She advised women to follow their ovulation every three hours and to start the insemination process 12 hours after receiving the first positive result.
The sperm is transferred to a syringe that is inserted into the body like a tampon.
Dani explained that she lay on her back with her feet in the air for 30 minutes to relax before inserting a menstrual disk, as this helps to keep the sperm near the entrance to the uterus for longer.
A menstrual disc is similar to a menstrual cup, but sits higher where the vaginal canal meets the cervix.
What is intrauterine insemination?
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment in which sperm is introduced directly into a woman's womb. It can be done with the sperm of a partner or a donor. This information describes the process that a specialist will perform in a fertility clinic or similar facility.
Who can use IUI
People who may want to use IUI include:
- Couples in same-sex relationships
- Those who cannot have vaginal sex – for example, because of a physical disability or a psychosexual problem
- Those who have an illness means that you need special help to receive. For example, if one of you has HIV and it is not safe to have unprotected sex
To increase your chances of success, an IUI cycle should be performed immediately after ovulation. Ovulation usually occurs 12 to 16 days before your next period. This can vary if you have an irregular menstrual cycle.
Chances of success depend on many different factors, including:
- the cause of infertility
- the age of the woman
- Male sperm count and sperm quality (using fresh sperm leads to higher conception rates than using frozen sperm)
- whether fertility drugs are used to stimulate ovulation (this may increase your chances of success)
Some women have mild cramps similar to menstrual pain, but otherwise the risks associated with IUI are minimal. The medical advice broadly agrees that the procedure is safest when performed in a fertility clinic or the like.
Women can have a positive pregnancy test carried out just two weeks later.
While the process in Dani's video sounds simple, medical experts have warned that women need to take risks into account.
The Human Fertilization and Empbryology Authority warned that performing the procedure in a clinic is the safest way to ensure that the sperm has been properly checked.
There can also be legal consequences regarding the parental responsibility of the sperm donor.
Just two weeks later, women can have a positive pregnancy test done, as shown above
