WAKEFIELD, R.I., April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To shed light on National Infertility Awareness Week, Organic Conceptions, a holistic health-focused company dedicated to helping couples on a path-to-parenthood, today announced the global availability of its online audio program and couples’ guide. The Journey to Parenthood and Beyond is the first research-based program to map the psychological lifecycle from initial fertility challenges through successful conception and everything in between. It walks couples through the stress and uncertainty associated with trying to conceive a child and provides the tools and skills needed to overcome these emotional challenges.
The Organic Conceptions online program, the first of its kind, is designed to help couples get to the source of the thoughts and emotions that can wreak havoc on their quality of life, relationships and overall reproductive health. Research has shown that the journey from struggling to conceive, to a successful conception follows predictable emotional stages. These stages now serve as a guide to help couples break through the emotional barriers and stress that can negatively affect their fertility.
“We have all heard the stories of people experiencing difficulty having a baby, going through years of treatments, and ultimately giving up or changing direction, then shockingly they find themselves pregnant,” said founder, Marc Sherman. “After this happened to us twice, my wife and I decided to conduct research on the mind-body connection during conception. Together with Kate Webster, PhD, experimental psychologist, and multivariate statistician, we found compelling insight and commonalities that are changing people’s lives.”
The Organic Conceptions Philosophy
In just a few short months of unsuccessful conception, women report high levels of worry and anxiety that can quickly morph into fear and panic. The month-to-month disappointment of not getting pregnant causes stress which can convert progesterone to cortisol - the stress hormone. High cortisol levels lead to a hormone imbalance that can reduce chances of successful conception.
Organic Conceptions was founded on a simple philosophy—short term stress release is not enough. What is needed is lasting change through understanding, and getting to the very core of the stressors involved in conceiving a child. The company’s unique program, combined with its support and mentor community, can normalize a couple’s experience, validate the extreme emotions they face, and empower them on their personal path-to-parenthood, all in the privacy of their own home.
“Marc and Kate’s evidence-based program brilliantly combines audio discussions with journaling and practical exercises to help patients gain clarity and regain personal power. It is a wonderful complement to traditional Chinese medicine. I am delighted to recommend this program to my patients,” said Diane M. Lowry, HealthFocus Acupuncture.
“One of the challenges of an infertility practice is finding a way to communicate and relate to patients beyond the medicine and physiology of the issues they are experiencing,” said Dr. Paul Carpentier, MD, Gianna Center of Long Island for Women’s Health and Fertility. “The Organic Conceptions program helps to unravel and shed light into the emotional factors and other dynamics that can dramatically affect fertility. I highly recommend it to my patients and to anyone looking to better understand and overcome obstacles on a path to parenthood.”
