Mother Of Invention: Mompreneur Ericka Perry Creates OB-GYN-Approved Prenatal Subscription Service


Here’s a splendid report on The Stork Bag from Madame Noir.

I have pulled out some of the more interesting bits below.

How much does the subscription service cost?

We have a lot of different options. Our prepaid Stork Bag subscriptions are $145 if our customers choose to order all three bags. They can also do an installment subscription for $40 per bag plus $10 flat rate shipping. Lastly, customers can purchase Stork Bags a la carte – forgoing a subscription – for $45 each plus shipping and the Post Bump Bag for $59 plus shipping.

Your business is OB-GYN-approved. What does that certification mean?

When we got that certification from the OB-GYN it was huge. We were actually approved by the head of Pediatric and Obstetrician Care in New Jersey. OB-GYN certified basically means that when our customers shop with us they can be confident in knowing that each one of the products in our bags and the bag itself has been reviewed by an OB-GYN.

Here’s some interesting advice from Ericka Perry

What advice would you give to women who have a good item for a company, but are afraid or don’t know how to start?

Thoughts become things is like the affirmation that I live by. My advice for women and especially women of color is just to do it. If you know you have a great idea, then put it out there. Even if the reception is not good at first. That just means that you have to go back and tweak it. Until you put it out there, you’ll never know what it can become.
