Well, in Stata you could use "ivreg2" - http://www.repec.org/bocode/i/ivreg2.html

If you have further questions on that, the Stata user's forum is the place to go. But finding a valid instrument for fertility won't be easy - there is a paper that uses maternal infertility as an instrument: https://www.aeaweb.org/annual_mtg_papers/2008/2008_606.pdf
