Erin McCollough, Founder FHY
Erin McCollough is the Founder of Fertile Hope Yoga®, the world’s first online fertility yoga studio allowing women to practice from the comfort of their living room floor.
For the last 15 years, Erin has been leading the industry with her mind & body fertility programs that she started at CNY Fertility Center owned by Dr. Robert Kiltz. She’s the Co-Creator of The Fertile Secret book and has helped thousands of women reach out and hold their baby after they had been told they could never get pregnant.
She calls upon her 20 years of training and practice in the healing arts: yoga teacher trainings, licensed massage therapy, Reiki certified, Doula trained, myofascial release, Arvigo Therapy certified to name a few and uses the modalities to change how women approach motherhood. Erin is also a certified coach, NLP & EFT practitioner and hypnotherapist.
When she’s not actively helping women become pregnant or traveling to educate at fertility conferences, you’ll find her hiking or at a softball field watching her daughter play.
Yoga Saved My Life And Why It Matters For Your Fertility…
You might be surprised to hear I suffered through a significant depression in my early 20s and was hospitalized. My body was disconnected from my mind and I needed something to save me. That’s when I truly committed to yoga to get me through that crippling time.
Then I was blessed with a baby. EVERYTHING CHANGED.
Any part of me that was not aligned with who I was and my purpose on this earth had to be rewritten. I quit my job in finance and headed back to what I knew was right for me — my work as a healer, a massage therapist, yoga teacher, doula, and energy worker. 20 years later, I’m still using all the knowledge that I gained from every modality I’ve learned.
When my path crossed with Dr. Robert Kiltz of CNY Fertility Center, I knew the second we met that our passion and work in this life was aligned. I immediately joined his team and have been working with him ever since. Fertile Hope Yoga was born with the birth of my daughter.
Motherhood became my catalyst for sharing the power and potential of a yoga practice with women like you.
I didn’t have the tribe or resources like fertility yoga and specific tools I craved as someone dedicated to wellness. So I decided to create it.
Now, I’m grateful to God for everything. From the life crisis that awakened me to my yoga path to the incredibly joyful experiences I share with thousands of moms when they reach out and hold their baby for the first time. It’s my deepest honor and pleasure to witness and be chosen to support any woman on their fertility journey. It’s beyond inspiring and I get to surround myself with the most courageous and fiercest women on the planet!

Emily Landry, Birth Doula
Hi! I'm Emily Landry.
I am an experienced toLabor-certified Birth Doula, a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), a Licensed Massage Therapist, and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. I love helping people prepare for a personal, satisfying birth experience, and I've spent the last 10 years doing so!
I want you to welcome your new baby into the world feeling knowledgeable and empowered - and beyond that, I have no agenda for how you do so! I believe that each of us can make our own best life choices given the opportunity and that there are no stupid questions when it comes to birth, breast/chestfeeding, and our bodies. I am passionate about demystifying pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, and postpartum body stuff, especially for folks who haven't experienced it yet!
When I'm not attending births or teaching childbirth classes, you might find me working to improve our local community, coloring in quirky coloring books, playing games with friends, reading the newest book about birth, or running errands around town with my wife Emily (yep, we have the same first name!)
Brooke Olejniczak, Community Support
Hi! I’m Brooke Olejniczak.
I am so excited to be a part of the Fertile Hope Yoga® community, as I know how difficult this fertility journey can be mentally, physically, and emotionally.
I understand how important it is to have an amazing support system. I have been on my own fertility journey for many years and am still trying to conceive at 40 years old.
You can find me providing encouragement and support to the members of our community Facebook group. I also work behind the scenes to make sure FHY operates smoothly and members have everything they need each month to succeed.
I'm Nicole Weathers.
I am a Registered Nurse (RN), Master's level Maternal-Child Public Health Nurse (MS), and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Over the past 10+ years in my nursing career, I have been witness to the healing power of the Mind-Body connection and the importance of having a strong social support network.
As a member of the Fertile Hope Yoga team, I'm so thrilled to help you utilize all the FHY practices and provide you support during your fertility journey! Specifically, I can help you connect with other members in smaller and more intimate Affinity Groups to promote a deeper connection and an invaluable level of support.
My own struggles with endometriosis and infertility have informed my career and led me to FHY. This community has provided me with the support, healing, and strength I needed to now continue my fertility journey via surrogacy. I want to help you enjoy the journey as you learn about yourself and grow to become the best parent you can be!
