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 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.
