Description:  Marc and his wife Erin struggled with infertility for years, then unexpectedly found themselves pregnant after arranging to adopt.  Having heard many similar stories, he ended up researching factors that affect the emotional and psychological health of couples who struggle to conceive. From the research, he developed a roadmap to help them improve their chances to overcome infertility, but more importantly to live happier and healthier marriages.

Presenter:   Marc Sherman

Bio: Marc Sherman founded Organic Conceptions after a 20-year career in corporate America. The idea came after he and his wife Erin 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.

They partnered with Ph.D. Kate Webster and conducted a multi-year study that uncovered 9 key emotional transitions that were common across these stories.  The research has been turned into an online cognitive based program for women and couples designed to optimize their emotional health and well-being for conception.

They are the first organization to research, map and bring to life the emotional stages critical for conception. Their online program, The Journey to Parenthood & Beyond, helps couples identify, name, address, and overcome the suffering involved when struggling to conceive, resulting in healthier patients and better outcomes.

Marc, now a father of 3 children, Maxwell (14), Emerson (8) and Kennedy (6), dedicates himself to Organic Conceptions and is an advocate for couples to ensure they are being cared for both physically and emotionally.
