ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Karin Thayer is the Founder/CEO of Fertility Planit. Originally from San Francisco, she earned her BA at Smith College and her MFA at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Her work as a TV producer has taken her all over the world, working with clients such as the BBC, Discovery, PBS and Oxygen Media. Her award winning films have screened at festivals including Sundance, Telluride and the Berlinale.
During a long and challenging journey with trying to have a child, Karin decided to "fly solo" into motherhood. She experienced multiple IVF and IUI treatments, years of acupuncture and mind-body-spirit therapies, and failed pregnancies. Throughout her experience she yearned for a comprehensive online resource which she could customize. Fertility Planit is the resource Karin couldn't find. It's a one-stop shop for people who want to have children and create a family, and for all services that support them. In 2011 Fertility Planit became an Astia Silicon Valley portfolio client.
In 2010, after being told by specialists she would never conceive, Karin got pregnant naturally with a known donor. Her healthy baby boy was born in April 2011. She now wants to help make the path lighter for others.
Karin is an experienced TV producer and can speak openly about her own fertility journey as well as the business and tradeshow she started to help make the path lighter for all people who wish to create a family. For further information , please contact: [email protected].
