About Berman Innovations

Berman Innovations, LLC was founded in Boston, MA in 2012.  Berman Innovations is a woman owned and operated LGBT friendly company that is dedicated to the advancement of products designed for women.  Berman Innovations has a specific interest in helping women that are planning alternative families, whether they are single or partnered, Berman Innovations goals are to educate, create and design the highest quality and best technology in products.  Berman Innovations recognized the number of women planning alternative families and the lack of products available that allow women to try and achieve pregnancy in the privacy of their own home and have fun in the process all at an affordable price.  Women and lesbians are surrounded by heterosexual couples and their ease of being able to have intercourse on demand to try and achieve pregnancy.  Berman Innovations felt it was important for single women and lesbian couples to have that same opportunity to have intercourse and try and achieve pregnancy any time they wish while allowing a very authentic and fun experience. 


Owner, President and Creator of The Semenette®, Stephanie Berman has been in the women’s reproductive health industry since 2003.  As co-owner and Vice President of her family business, Sepal Reproductive International, Stephanie has extensive knowledge and understanding of the women’s reproductive health market.  In 2009, Stephanie was working on creating a home insemination kit for women to use at home.  This kit was highly clinical and required FDA approval.  While this kit was being tested on the market, Stephanie saw much success with clients that used the kit and was receiving recognition from major publications such as Curve Magazine.  After her positive feedback and high demand for a product of this kind, it has been a dream of Stephanie’s to create a product that uses the highest technology in home insemination but does not require a doctor.  Her idea for The Semenette™ was the perfect marriage of those two concepts, allowing women and couples access to an amazing product and giving them the opportunity to try and get pregnant in the privacy of their own home and have fun in the process. 

As a lesbian woman, Stephanie knows first-hand what it is like to want to be able to get your partner pregnant but not have access to any product that will allow for an authentic and natural experience.  When Stephanie and her wife were in the process of trying to conceive it was their experiences with trying to get pregnant that sparked her desire to make a product of this kind available to women.  Stephanie is extremely happy to share that her and her wife were able to use The Semenette to try and conceive and have success.  They were blessed with a beautiful baby girl!  Stephanie hopes to revolutionize the way the women and lesbians make babies and hopes to continue to help bring the miracle of a family to women all over the world.
