Hey 👋 We're Ingrid & Adrien, and we're so happy you're here!
We founded Storka in 2020 based on our own experience with preconception. With the support of leading researchers, health practitioners and wellness experts, and together with parents-to-be across the globe, we've built Storka: a unique, integrative Preconception Wellness Programme for both women and men on their journey toward parenthood.
When we began talking about having a baby, we were hustling in every aspect of our lives: fast-paced jobs, high-intensity workouts, picture-perfect meals, travel-heavy holidays. On the surface, it looked like we were taking care of ourselves—but inside, we felt a lack of purpose, and our bodies and souls were craving nourishment. Ingrid was struggling with hormonal issues and anxiety. Adrien slept poorly, felt exhausted and out of alignment. After an honest look at how we were living we realised: surely this is not the best time for our bodies to conceive.
As we started researching preconception health, it was hard to find trustworthy and easily accessible information and support for both women and men on how to rebalance their lives in preparation for pregnancy. We dove into scientific research and spoke to health & wellness experts with years of experience working with people who want to conceive. A holistic picture began to emerge, emphasising the importance of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing for fertility, pregnancy outcomes, and the health of a future child.
This was the final nudge we needed to make some major lifestyle changes that had been on our minds for awhile. We quit our jobs, moved closer to a network of supportive family and friends and started nourishing our bodies, adjusting our sleep patterns, and tending to our spiritual health. With this shift in mindset and behaviour patterns, we experienced amazing improvements in our energy, hormones and overall well-being.
Not everyone has to upend their lives quite like we did! But the core of this preconception experience stayed with us, and we knew we could help others with everything we learned along the way. Two years after we began rethinking our preconception wellness, our daughter was born. She’s the first Storka baby and a constant reminder of our purpose: to be present in her life and help other aspiring parents, just like we once were.

Frequently asked questions
How do I know if Storka’s preconception programme is for me/us?The Preconception Wellness Programme was created for any individual or couple that wants to conceive. Whether you’ve been struggling to conceive, are just beginning to think about starting a family or have already been pregnant, Storka is here to empower and guide you on that journey. We bring ease, joy and clarity as you take your steps towards parenthood.
We'd like to conceive sometime in the next year, when is a good time to start with preconception?The earlier the better — both research and our experts recommend an at least six-month dedicated preconception window to support your health and wellbeing before trying to conceive. We are very excited for you and happy that you're curious about how to be intentional about your conception journey. ❤️
I am/we are looking to conceive with assisted reproductive technology like IVF. Is the Storka programme still applicable?Yes! Taking time to intentionally prepare for conception and pregnancy, however you conceive, is important and can make a big difference. See if you can align the programme with your treatments.
When can I join the programme?Storka has recently launched and at the moment we are open to smaller, private groups. Keep an eye on our website to see when the next opening will be.
How does the programme work?The programme is entirely online, delivered via 10 perfectly curated modules over the course of twelve weeks. Each week focuses on a new theme, and the programme material is mainly delivered through bite-sized videos featuring our experts. The modules are released weekly, progressively building upon one another to give you the time and space needed to start integrating new routines into your lifestyle. The idea is not to overwhelm you with content but rather to make these concepts actionable by focusing on a few each week. You also have access to the material for six months after you finish the programme, so you have plenty of time to revisit the material for support. Alongside the digital material we also meet with you through mentorship, community chat and calls. We are in it together, we are a community. ❤️
How much time do I need to dedicate to Storka each week?The module content takes about one hour each week. We have divided each module into bite-sized pieces, so that you can either go through the content all at once, or consume our short videos throughout your week. You are in control, you decide! ❤️ Each week you get plenty of downloadable summaries, handouts, and infographics to help you remember all the most important points. Once you join the Storka programme, you can continue to access the course for six months after you finish. And, you will have life-long access to our private community.
Can I do the Storka programme together with my partner?YES—we even encourage you to do so. Our programme is built so that you can do it together as a couple. The health and wellbeing of both partners matter when it comes to preparing for a healthy conception and pregnancy. Also, Storka members have reported improvements to the well-being of their relationship when going through the programme together. If you are in a same-sex relationship and/or if you will be using donor eggs or sperm, both participants’ health and well-being still matter. Whatever the beautiful composition of your rainbow family is, you will all benefit from entering pregnancy and parenthood with a healthier mind, body and spirit.
What if my partner is not on board with doing the programme?The programme is designed to give both you and your partner information about supporting your preconception health, which will benefit your pregnancy journey. Both of you matter. If your partner isn’t on board right away, you can start the programme on your own. Find a time to show your partner some of the material you discover. Our experience is that they are likely to become motivated once they interact with the content, understand the science and start to engage with others walking a similar path. We have summaries and infographics provided for each module that you can also share with your partner. Sometimes, all it takes is to really talk about it. Take a deep breath and go for it. We believe in you! Equally, if you do not have a partner (or yours doesn’t choose to participate), the Storka programme can be done alone, and has many benefits for single parents-to-be.
What happens inside the Storka community?The community aspect is a major pillar of the Storka Preconception Wellness Programme. Our members say it’s one of our best features and the most transformational! You join a community of other like-minded, aspiring mamas and papas who have joined the programme alongside you. The community is 100% private and you can choose to be anonymous. We release bonus information in the community chat, where you can engage with other Storka members. We also organise community calls with Storka founders Ingrid and Adrien and our experts. Here, we connect on a deep and vulnerable level. ❤️
Does Storka’ programme replace seeing my medical doctor or other medical care?NO. We are not giving medical advice in the programme. The information provided is intended to support people who are looking to start a family and are interested in impacting their well-being through lifestyle factors. The programme is not intended to replace the advice or guidance of your healthcare provider. We recommend consulting with a licensed medical professional before making any significant changes to your health routine.
I have known conditions that affect my fertility, can Storka still help me?Our programme covers important universal concepts that apply to everyone. Our approach covers the most important aspects of preconception wellness, which can set you up for improved chances of conception and a healthier pregnancy whilst also giving your baby a healthy start to life, no matter what you’ve experienced up to this point. However, it’s important to note that taking our programme is not a guarantee of pregnancy, nor is it intended to be used as a substitute for medical assessment, diagnosis or treatment for any condition in lieu of the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider familiar with your personal situation and health. Even though our programme features experts, we are not YOUR personal doctor.
Do you have a refund policy?Due to its educational nature and downloadable content, this programme is unfortunately non-refundable.
