About Bird&Be

The current fertility experience is broken, and we want your help fixing it. We grow families through at-home, personalized products that are science-backed to optimize fertility outcomes. With rising infertility rates, our kits will help educate our customers on their fertility health early, and help them take action with personalized supplements and products that will take them to and through parenthood. All of this will be done under a brand umbrella that resonates with our customer base. We see a future that is different from the current "family planning" aisle filled with blue and pink boxes, plastered with photos of babies. Our brand will reflect the modern millennial.
