  • How soon can I book my Trigger Shot?

    We suggest at least a 7-day "heads-up" advanced email notice for all trigger shots, as many times, you will not know the exact date and time of your injection until the day before or morning of your trigger shot notification. You can email our office by clicking HERE. However, you will not be allowed to officially confirm book your Trigger Shot until you have a confirmed date and time.

    *Trigger shot only service visits are not insurance billable eligible.

    Note: We generally keep a few open slots each day for last-minute trigger shot requests. However, current clients will have priority booking.

     

    You will need to have your provider's order with the name of medication, dosage, administration route, date and time of injection ready to upload on the intake form. You can obtain this by uploading a picture or pdf copy of your Trigger Shot prescription (usually found on your pharmacy medication list) and a copy of the email from your clinic with the required medication info. You can also have your provider or provider's nurse type up a order with the provider's dated signature and email that document to our office.

     

    My Trigger Shot is today, but I won't know my exact time until after I receive my blood draw results this morning or afternoon. What should I do?

     

    We know that many times clients will not know their exact injection date/time until the morning or afternoon of their blood draw. If you did not give us an advanced notice, then you should contact our office immediately to see if we can accommodate your request. Because trigger shots have to be given at an exact time, we take a limited number of trigger shot-only clients and current/prior clients are given priority booking. To avoid your Trigger Shot service request being rejected, it is best to contact our office as soon as possible.

  • Our CNS HELPS (Home Evaluation & Learning Postpartum Service) aka MommyCare is delivered via our signature SocioMaternal nursing care model designed to help your successfully transition from the the hospital / birth center to home. Our 10-point nurse-led care model covers the entire spectrum of your family's postpartum care needs. While our program relies heavy on the care of mom (hence, MommyCare) from tending to the care of mom / birthing parent's physical and emotional health needs, it also teaches best practices on how to best care for baby at home, according to your family's cultural preferences and beliefs. This includes lactation and feeding support, along with baby care, safety, and development. We work with the entire family to develop and execute a plan that will allow the entire family (even, Fido) to thrive with the new bundle of joy(s).

Booking

    • In a 2021 Fertility & Sterility conducted in university hospitals evaluating the effectiveness of the use of apps to help clients manage medications during IVF, it showed that not only did apps not help in decreasing medication errors but the estimated medication waste cost in both control and case groups undergoing IVF averaged a $2,566 lost per cycle!

    • For full-cycle clients, you will be enrolled in our signature CNS Med Check™ program. Our program is specifically designed to help clients decrease medication wastage, extend current supply and eliminate over-purchasing medications. Additionally, your trained CNS Storks completely handle your medications from correct med identification to reconstitution to accurate dosing to skilled technique administration. With inexperienced hands, you can receive inaccurate dosing and administration resulting in medication errors that can produce poor or suboptimal treatment responses. Your experienced CNS storks eliminate this variable down to the last drop of very costly medications.

  • All clients are required to sit or lay down during injection visits (as a preventive measure against any possible vasovagal syncope symptoms, fainting and rapid heart beat during injections).

     

    Most clients choose their front room sofa, comfortable mat on the living room floor, or bedroom. Your CNS Stork will adjust to any place of your choosing, so select an area that is most comfortable for you to lay and relax.

     

    Additionally, provide a cleared, cleaned hard surface for your nurse to place medical equipment and injection supplies near your place of injection. The surface should be about 3 feet long. Ideal furniture is something like a coffee table, small dining table, ottoman with hard surface, or bedside table.

  • In response to the recent Covid-19 pandemic and because of the serious consequences that a Covid-19 infection could cause (such as IVF cycle cancellations or possible health consequences to unborn fetus), currently, you will see your Childress Nursing Services' Storks and direct healthcare professionals wearing a facemask while in your home. Also, all of our CNS Storks are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

     

    Unless medically exempted, all clients and household members present in the room during injection visits are required to wear a face covering throughout the visit.

  • Postpartum doulas are a non-medical companions, meaning they are not medically licensed to provide care. They can provide limited physical and emotional support after delivery. Some have special education, some do not.

     

    Postpartum nurses are college-trained healthcare professionals, who are medically licensed to provide and coordinate postpartum patient care, health care educators with nutritional support experience, while providing advice and emotional support to patients.

     

    Why a postpartum nurse?

    According to this article from Yale, maternal mortality rates in the US are increasing.

    Maternal mortality refers to the death of woman during pregnancy and up to 1 year after delivery. Numerous studies have also shown that many of the deaths are preventable with the highest rates of death occurring within the first 14 days postpartum and start to peak back up after the famous "6-week" check-up, when women are discharged from their OB/GYN and back to their primary care physician.

    So, what are some ways in which we can adequately address this deadly problem?

    At CNS, we think we are losing our moms because of the lack of a licensed healthcare professional in the home trained in identifying and addressing maternal mortality risk factors. This is why we developed our comprehensive SocioMaternal CNS HELPS aka MommyCare program. CNS HELPS provides trained, medically licensed nurses to care for you at home from 0 to 12 months postpartum.

  • Each CNS client is assigned to a nursing team. We try to limit the number of nurses who will be administering your injections; however, we need to make sure that we have adequate coverage, as it gets pretty tough to ask one nurse to work several weeks in a row without a day off. As a result, you can be assigned several nurses to your nursing team.
