A quick housekeeping note: I've consolidated your two posts and shared this one in Asks and Health & Wellness as well! In the future you can always post across communities at the time of writing the post.

Hey there Meeta - thanks for being open about your experience with miscarriage. I'm inspired that you've taken that experience and used it to help define your purpose. Some companies that come to mind are: - Ro (specifically their Modern Fertility section): The Pill Club: Adyn: also lived in SF for a number of years and love the city. Wishing you a happy transition!

Hi @meetamcd, thanks for sharing your story on here. I don't have a connection to femtech, but can offer a process to help you get started. Here's what I would do:1. Create a list of top 20 companies in femtech, you can find plenty through google and linkedin and on here, Instagram can be a place to look at as well2. Research the Strategy/Ops people in each of the company, that can be Chief of Staff, COO, etc.3. Create a short intro pitch, which includes your interest in the mission of the company and your ask for an exploratory conversation about working in the femtech industry4. Message the people you find on Linkedin, Elpha and other platforms to setup a informational interview callThis can start to give you an idea of what the roles are about and what the culture of companies are like. I think you can also make quite a few connection on Elpha as well ;)
