Spring is upon us—well, at least those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. And what is spring if not a time of new life and beginnings? Soon, fauna and flora alike will begin making their happy appearance in woodlands, meadows, mountains, and even town and city. Plants and trees will rouse from their sleep to sprout flowers and leaves; animals of many kinds will bear their young; birds will return to sing their merry song; and the sun will begin to cast off its hibernal shroud.
But why this talk of spring you ask? IVF we say! For IVF encapsulates much of what the season represents—in its fruits may be found new life, joy, and warmth. Often has its brightness pierced the darkness of those who, in seeming barrenness, had found themselves thrust into the winter of their own despair. But that is the miracle of IVF—it can be a bringer of hope, a deliverer of the unexpected, and a comfort to the weary and disheartened.
Of course, IVF knows no seasonal bounds. Even so, if you’ve battled long and hard for a child of your own, if you’re now grasping for an open door where others have closed, when is a better time than now to try? For whilst there are no certainties, the fact remains that IVF can work and has worked for many. Perhaps it could do the same for you.
Born in 1955, Dr. Mrázek is a graduate of the Faculty of Medicine at the esteemed Charles University of Prague.
