Proudly wear green, have big celebration parties and flood social media with pictures of sperm-covered cupcakes and embryo-shaped treats! Share with your local news stations, newspapers, vendors and whatever other avenues to create awareness. And tell Louise Brown happy birthday!

Happy Early World Embryologist Day!
