On the Cutting Edge

Resilience – the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

Every day I get to see resilient women in the battle of their life to build their family. For some it involves many cycles of disappointment, for others it occurs more quickly. But for all it is a challenge. But we women are resilient.

In this issue we met Kristine whose fertility battles began with the realization that she had so many fibroids, that there may not be any normal uterus left. She endured followed by two rounds of in vitro fertilization and major surgery to remove her fibroids. Then a first embryo transfer did not result in implantation before finally getting pregnant! Kristine and her family embody the importance of being resilient during this process!

I hope that her story was able to provide inspiration to our readers. Thank you Kristine!
