Organic Conceptions began with founders Erin and Marc Sherman’s personal struggle in trying to conceive for nearly a decade. In partnership with Ph.D Kate Webster they used proven scientific practices to dig deep into stories from couples like them who unexpectedly overcame infertility (i.e Adopted then conceived, and other such stories). Each individual story offers insight, but when woven together, they provide a road map that can guide others on their personal journey to parenthood.
** This program is not about "letting go", "just relaxing" or "giving up" on your quest to become parents. It's an evidence based program designed to optimize your emotional health for conception.
"I have finished the audio program and it has been immensely helpful. I feel like I have come out of a dark cave I didn’t know I was in. Your program made me realize how much I had taken the role of “struggling with infertility” and internalized it. I honestly didn’t remember what is was like to NOT have this cloud of infertility hanging over me. Now that I’ve taken the course I feel like I’m free. Your program has brought me back to a place of peace. It made me realize I need to take care of my whole self when previously we were just focusing on what could be physically wrong, but I need to pay attention to my heart and mind; they also need care! Thank you so much for all the work you and Dr. Kate, your wife Erin and anyone else on your team did. I am truly grateful!"
My wife and I struggled trying to conceive for close to a decade. The emotional journey was nothing like we ever experienced ranging from doubt, fear, panic, anger and jealousy.
Like everyone else, Erin and I had always heard stories about people who, after years of trying, miraculously conceived. But we never thought that would be our path. Imagine our total shock when it happened to us not just once, but twice!
With Ph.D. Kate Webster leadership, we set out and examined hundreds of people's stories to find greater patterns, insights, and commonalities. What we uncovered in this multi-year study was not just that -- YES-- there are predictable behavior patterns and trends but that you can use those patterns to empower yourself on your journey to parenthood and beyond!
"I really ate it up because I had never heard my infertility addressed and described in such specific ways. I have pages of journal notes from it, so many things starred and underlined. After getting through the program I was on cloud nine because it helped me so much! My husband and I are going to go through it again together. Thank you so much for this incredible program. "
"This program has served as a great coping tool and reminder that whatever fertility struggle you may be battling, it simply is not bigger than life itself. I've been consumed by my own problems, fears and worries with my fertility. This program helped me to look at the big picture and a reminder that the more power I give to those negative feelings, the less I’m giving to my own healing and self-worth. "
"I just wanted to say that we've been finding it really powerful. It has been so helpful being able to understand what has been happening the last few years. It has been so valuable to be able to identify why we are reacting the way we are and to be able to identify with so much. It has really helped me to stop being so fearful. I was so close to starting antidepressants when it was suggested that I start this program."
"Until this program, I hadn't realized I was carrying so much resentment (to the doctors, my husband, my family, the world). I am terrible at showing my emotions, stoic at all times, never letting my guard down. Anyway, I was amazed at how I poured out all my emotions on to paper. I feel better already. Thank you and Erin for doing this, for trying to help other couples. Amazing!"

"Marc & Kate's evidence based program brilliantly combines audio discussions with journaling and practical exercises to help those trying to conceive identify pivotal moments along their journey, gain clarity, and ultimately regain their personal power. "
"The Organic Conception's Journey to Parenthood audio program and workbook is an invaluable resource and adjunct to patients treatment to help address the often overlooked emotional obstacles that go hand in hand with infertility"
"After finishing the program I noticed my client was visibly different. Her demeanor had changed from one of anxiety and desperation to one of peace and optimism. She said she gained valuable life skills from the program!"
A recent global meta data analysis concluded that psychological interventions had a "Significant effect on pregnancy rates".
The reality, however is that many couples do not seek professional help for many reasons (appointment fatigue, costs, etc). In addition, couples become so fixated on the pure "mechanics" and the physical aspects of treatment that they don't make space for their emotional health and well-being.
Our unique cognitive behavioral program can be completed at your own pace in the privacy of your own home.
