Meet our passionate and dedicated team here to serve you
at every step in your journey to parenthood!
Organic Conceptions leverages the latest research in cognitive behavioral therapy methods to help couples achieve balance in their minds & bodies to improve chances for conception.
Organic Conceptions was founded by Marc and Erin Sherman after they struggled with infertility, decided to adopt and then unexpectedly found themselves pregnant. Realizing that this phenomenon occurs regularly, they decided to conduct the first-ever research project to better understand the insights, patterns, and commonalities from similar stories. Organic Conceptions is the first organization to map and bring to life the emotional stages that are common among couples who overcome fertility challenges. From their research, Marc & Erin developed a comprehensive program to help move couples through these stages to achieve improved reproductive health and better outcomes for couples.
All of us at Organic Conceptions believe deeply in our purpose and our program—to help couples realize their dream of parenthood. Many of us have been there ourselves, or have seen loved ones struggle with trying to conceive. We understand, and we are here to help.
Marc Sherman, Founder
Organic Conceptions began with founders Erin and Marc Sherman’s personal struggle in trying to conceive for close to a decade. Using both qualitative and quantitative research practices, they dug deep into stories from couples like them who unexpectedly overcame infertility. Every story individually holds a massive amount of insight, however when weaved together, they provide a road map that can guide others on their journey to parenthood and beyond.
Kate Webster, PhD. Chief Researcher
Kate makes meaning of the stories we have collected. Her background in Multivariate Statistics combined with a PhD in Psychology makes her the perfect partner. Her philosophy is simple—to understand, at the very core, the sorrows and joys and scientifically map the similarities among them. This mapping can enable us to pinpoint moments of transition and triggers that can weaken not only our quality of life but also damage our reproductive health.
