Hi, I'm Erin. I’m so glad you’re here!

If I could reach out from behind the screen right now and hug you,
I WOULD.
Let's pause for a moment and set an intention.

Let go of:
...the jealousy ...relationship strains ...overwhelm ...the doubt of
"am I doing enough?" ...the weariness & emotional exhaustion

Soften around:
...hurtful remarks, even if well-intended ...feeling like your life is on pause ...the financial stress ...the pain of feeling alone

Take a deep breath.
If you're teary-eyed and overwhelmed, know this:

I'm here for you.

You're Not Alone, Too Old, Or Broken...

1 in 6 families grapple with (in)fertility challenges.

Having spent nearly two decades in a fertility clinic, I've seen firsthand that while assisted reproductive technology is promising, it's more art than precise science.

Surprisingly, many fertility clinics don't provide psychosocial support, even though fertility treatments can lead to stress, anxiety, depression, or PTSD. Studies indicate that half of the women labeled infertile might be diagnosed as depressed. In fact, navigating (in)fertility can be as taxing as confronting a cancer diagnosis.

And we know that stress can influence reproductive health and pregnancy outcomes.

The Solution

Take charge by focusing on what you CAN control, which is more than you might think. Prioritize your mental and emotional well-being, and make lifestyle choices to enhance your fertility.

Doing so isn't just a suggestion—it's vital. It can save you heartache, time, and money.

 Your fertility's foundation rests on your mental health, emotions, and lifestyle.

Including mind/body practices in your fertility medical treatment shows 175%
increase in pregnancy rates.

This study by a Harvard researcher, Dr. Alice Domar, found that those in a 10-week mind-body program, encompassing yoga, meditation, and group activities, conceived at triple the usual rate.

During my fertility journey, I lacked resources beyond conventional western medicine. Deep down, I felt the importance of these alternative supports.

So, drawing from my experience as a healer and women's health specialist, I forged a place where every woman could find the tools for success.

Fertile Hope is designed not just to help women navigate fertility challenges but to truly flourish throughout the journey.

Imagine This...

Waking up in the morning...

Imagine waking up in the morning feeling strong, happy, and empowered, ready to take on anything that comes your way on this journey (and life). Gone are the days of feeling stuck in the fog and wondering how you'll make it through another day. Instead, you feel confident in your ability to tackle whatever challenges may arise.

No more feeling like fear, anxiety, worry...

No more feeling like fear, anxiety, worry, and rage are all piling up inside you, like an irritating broken record with no one to turn to for support. With the opportunity to connect with someone who not only understands but can also guide you through it, you can find relief from these overwhelming emotions.

Reignite love...

Gone are the days of feeling disconnected from your partner, leading to mutual struggles and a downward spiral of emotions. Instead, you can reignite the love, closeness, and passion you once shared, and find new ways to communicate and work together like a powerful team in your journey to conception.

Feel a sense of peace, confidence and happiness...

No longer will life feel like it's slipping away from you. Instead, you'll feel a sense of peace, confidence, and happiness, equipped with a powerful toolkit, strategies, and resources to manage any future stress or hardship. You'll have clarity on your goals, how to achieve them, and how to bounce back when life throws a curveball. With this newfound resilience, you can face whatever challenges come your way and emerge stronger than ever.

Say goodbye to the anxiety and hopelessness...

Say goodbye to the anxiety and hopelessness that often comes during the TWW. Instead, you'll coast through with a sense of peace and hope, feeling confident and calm as you wait for the next chapter of your journey to unfold.

What Is Possible For You

The challenges you face today are shaping you into the exceptional mom your child needs. Moms who've navigated a challenging fertility journey truly stand out.

Every fertility story is unique, and I'm here to help you embrace yours.

So when you look back you'll...

Fertile Hope is a Safe Space

In the beginning my life was all doctor appointments and shots! After finding Fertile Hope Yoga, I had a set of tools to help me at anytime. Plus, I developed friendships with other women and we all support each other as parents now!

Fertile Hope Yoga is a safe space to share my experiences with women who had a similar journey and together we learn how to treat our bodies right.

I realized my strength and ability to keep going while expanding my family

The yoga for fertility program is a vital lifeline for navigating the fertility world when struggling to begin or add to your family. When I first joined, I was so inspired by the FHY community that I ended up sharing way more than I anticipated (for a shy first timer) and walked away with a renewed sense of hope and a feeling of belonging.

After losing my first pregnancy at 19 weeks, I wasn’t sure how to pick my life back up. I joined FHY just 3 weeks after my loss and through many tears I was able to share my story out loud.

The compassion and support I received was incredible. I left realizing that I was way stronger than I ever thought and felt that I would be to be able to push through and continue on my journey to creating the family I so desperately wanted.

Sarah Gordon | Rochester, NY
IUI Success Story + Fertile Hope Yoga Graduate

I learned I was strong and could survive things I thought would kill me

Fertile Hope yoga was a life saver for me. The support was incredible. Being able to share my innermost feelings helped lessen the pain I was feeling. And the focus on gratitude helped me keep perspective on a journey that can easily swallow you whole and consume your identity at times.

I learned that I was strong and could survive things that I used to think would kill me. While strength is inherent in this process it’s equally important to welcome fear, sorrow and whatever else comes up… feeling the grief and being vulnerable (not always feeling positive or strong) is essential in welcoming and inviting miracles and keeping hope alive. Often when you’re at rock bottom and ready to give up a miracle appears.

Knowing I was not alone and witnessing the strength and determination of my fellow womb warriors multiplied my power and helped me carry on.

Mother and Child

From ashamed and depressed to hopeful

My husband and I felt alone, ashamed and defeated after experiencing multiple pregnancy losses. After starting yoga, I felt hopeful again. I was able to function and didn’t feel depressed anymore. I also learned so much about having options and choices. I felt empowered to advocate for myself and make an appointment with a fertility clinic. It was the best choice I ever made.

In case we haven't already met...

Hi there, I'm Erin, the heart and story behind Fertile Hope.

In my 20s, a severe bout of depression brought me to a pivotal point. Yoga became my lifeline, pulling me out of that darkness and serendipitously paving my path to motherhood, reshaping my entire worldview. This transformative power of yoga wasn't just a personal awakening. It compelled me to shift my career from finance to embrace my genuine calling: as a healer, massage therapist, yoga instructor, doula, and energy worker.

My journey over the last two decades in the holistic healing realm has blessed me with a vast toolkit—from yoga and massage therapy to Reiki and Arvigo Therapy. As a certified life coach, I deftly weave in techniques like NLP, EFT, and hypnotherapy, ensuring a holistic approach to fertility wellness.

Having pioneered fertility wellness for over 15 years, I had the privilege of launching some of the pioneering mind-body fertility programs at the renowned CNY Fertility Center alongside the esteemed Dr. Robert Kiltz. This collaboration not only deepened my passion but also birthed Fertile Hope, inspired by the joyous arrival of my daughter.

Today, Fertile Hope stands as a cozy corner of the internet where we dive deep into the magic of mind-body medicine. It's a place to find support, healing, and a community amidst fertility challenges. I've been honored to guide thousands of women like you, into the embrace of motherhood.

My personal joy includes hiking, playing with my French Bulldog, and cheering on my daughter at her softball games.

Are you Ready?

If you can say YES to any of the following, joining Fertile Hope
could be the best decision you have made yet...

You're poised to break free from the fatigue of trying to conceive, seeking a guiding hand to offer grounded, evidence-backed strategies for your journey.

You aspire to lead a joyful and healthy life, regardless of what the future holds.

You're set for solutions grounded in science, paired with actionable strategies that deliver results.

You want to move forward with a sense of empowerment, serenity, and balance.

You want real advice from real people are are tired of the Google rabbit hole.

You want to feel confident in what you can control and be able to let go of the rest.

You desire to be proactive and take a more holistic approach to navigating your fertility journey.

What Members are Saying

I didn't know how badly I needed the Community at FHY

I didn’t know how badly I needed the community aspect of the program, but I had a sense I could use some support so wanted to join IGNITE. At the time I joined I was just about to start IVF. I had been doing acupuncture for a while but figured adding the opportunity to do a yoga program designed for where I was in my fertility journey could not hurt!

To those on the fertility journey I would say, this journey is hard, and even harder on your own. This program supports you every step of the way and provides a community of people who understand what you are going through. They cheer you on when you have success and lift you up when you are feeling low.

From disappointed to feeling more connected

In June of 2017 we tried to use our one remaining frozen embryo, but it did not take. This was an emotional disappointment given the success of our first cycle in 2015. We took the summer off to focus on our son and summer fun, and in October of 2017 completed our second full IVF cycle, complete with egg retrieval, etc.

I am now pregnant with a son, due in July 2018! The fertility process has led to an incredible appreciation for my mind-body connection, a new approach to health, and an incredible circle of friends.

It also led to a better understanding of healthy personal boundaries, some unhealthy relationships and family dynamics that needed “house cleaning” and a fierce desire to help other women who are trying to become parents.

Get More Questions? I've got answers

What exactly is this program and how does it help me?

Fertile Hope offers a self-paced, mind/body medicine online membership that includes yoga for fertility, hypnosis, and meditations (all curated to meet you exactly where you are and no matter where you are in your fertility and no matter how you are trying to conceive). It is a membership program and a community dedicated to supporting women who are navigating infertility and/or loss.

The mission of Fertile Hope is to provide emotional and mental coping strategies, holistic movement to optimize fertility, education, and a supportive network that enables women to find inner peace and resilience to face any setbacks. Fertile Hope members can make significant progress in reclaiming their lives, rediscovering joy, and increasing their chances of pregnancy. 

I'm nervous about spending money when I have to pay for fertility treatments and meds too.

This is definitely a valid concern. What we know is that no matter what the price of a service, the decision to join really ISN'T ABOUT THE MONEY. It's about making choices. If you say yes to joining FHY, you are choosing to invest in your health, your family's health, and your future babies' health (generational health is also a thing in addition to generational wealth).

You are choosing to invest in YOU and all the things you can control in this process that also happen to make the biggest impact toward success.

If you're at rock bottom now, consider how much more of the emotional toll you can take, and how much time you have on your side. It might be that NOW is the time to take a leap of faith.

What if I don't like the program?

I want this program to work for you. In the rare case that it's simply not a good fit, I offer a full 2-week refund guarantee. That means you have 2 weeks from the day you enroll to try it out with zero risk and I will give you a full refund for any reason during that time.

When should I join Fertile Hope?

You can join anytime and feel confident the practices will align with exactly where you are at any stage in your fertility journey process. It does take about 90 days to experience changes at the cellular level in your body if you are looking to improve egg quality.
 
Now, I do think NOW is a great time to join!

You may worry that participating in an (in)fertility program will worsen your feelings, and it can seem like just acknowledging your struggles could be overwhelming.

However, avoiding the processing and exploration of complex emotions can lead to feeling stuck. Rest assured that this program will not dwell on challenges but rather help you build a fulfilling life, boosting confidence, strength, and joy. As a result, you will no longer feel triggered by addressing what you are going through.

Will this program really work for me?

90% of women who join FHY graduate! Yep! That means 90% of women who have come through this program have achieved pregnancy. You can read their success stories HERE.

At FHY, we believe it not only takes a village to raise a child but also to create one. We believe this because this is what we have seen over and over within a decade of offering this program. IT MATTERS how you are supported during your fertility journey. The mind-body connection is something you can control and have a huge impact on your success.

Plus, Harvard research shows that infertility patients who participated in a mind-body program for a 10-week period (which included yoga and meditation) conceived 3 times more often. That means you increase your chances of getting pregnant by 175%!!

Are there any clinical studies that show that the mind/body programs offered at Fertile Hope actually help improve fertility and success rates?

Yes! There is so much science backing the benefits of a mind-body program for fertility enhancement. 

Fertility Study: Harvard research shows that patients who participated in a mind body program for a 10-week period (which included yoga and meditation) conceived 3 times more often. (1) 

IVF Study: Mind body techniques such as yoga have also been shown to improve in vitro fertilization success rates by lowering stress hormones. In a behavioral study of 151 women undergoing IVF, birth rates were 93% higher for women with the lowest stress and depression levels. (2) 

Anxiety Study: Participation in a two-month yoga class can lead to significant reduction in perceived levels of anxiety in women who suffer from anxiety disorders. This study suggests that yoga can be considered as a complementary therapy or an alternative method for medical therapy in the treatment of anxiety disorders. (3) 

PCOS Study: Ninety adolescent (15-18 years) girls from a residential college in Andhra Pradesh, who satisfied the Rotterdam criteria, were randomized into two groups. The study concluded twelve weeks of a holistic yoga program in adolescents with polycystic ovarian syndrome is significantly better than physical exercise program in reducing anxiety symptoms. (4) 

Stress Study: We aimed to evaluate potential effects of Iyengar Hatha yoga on perceived stress and associated psychological outcomes in mentally distressed women. Women suffering from mental distress participating in a 3-month Iyengar yoga class show significant improvements on measures of stress and psychological outcomes. Further investigation of yoga with respect to prevention and treatment of stress-related disease and of underlying mechanism is warranted. (5) 

Pregnancy Study: This study examined the effects of a yoga program during pregnancy, on maternal comfort, labor pain, and birth outcomes. The experimental group was found to have higher levels of maternal comfort during labor and 2 hours post-labor, and experienced less subject evaluated labor pain than the control group. The experimental group was found to have a shorter duration of the first stage of labor, as well as the total time of labor. (6)

How much time will I need to commit?

FHY members spend anywhere between 1-3 hours per week practicing although this is highly customizable to your needs in any given week. But ultimately, that's up to you :-) There's a LOT there for you to dive into and you may join for one or two elements, or you may be here for all of it and want to dive in. It's up to you how and how much you consume (you certainly don't need to look, act or implement everything, and certainly not all at once).

What happens if I get pregnant?

That would be amazing and actually happens often.  FHY offers an entire on-demand library of pregnancy yoga, pregnancy meditations, and pregnancy hypnosis tracks for all trimesters of pregnancy. There is also a special peer affinity group you can participate in for all things pregnancy. 

Again and again, I see women assuming that the stress of infertility disappears once a positive pregnancy test is received. However, this is not the case for everyone and may even lead to increased anxiety especially if a woman has previously experienced a miscarriage.

Research indicates that women who have faced infertility are about four times more likely to experience postpartum depression. Investing in a program like Fertile Hope can help you fully enjoy the pregnancy you have longed for while receiving support and keeping you healthy.

Do I have to be doing IVF to join?

Nope! You can be at any stage of trying to conceive or pregnancy loss. Whether you've been trying for 6 months or 6 years, whether you’re 26 or 46, whether you’ve suffered loss or haven’t, all are welcome!

I have more questions. How can I get them answered?

Simply email support@fertilehopeyoga.com and you will get an answer within 24 hours.
