The power of a good IVF doctor !


IVF doctors tend to underestimate the power which they have. The truth is that they have an enormous ability to help their patients and create a positive impact in their life, by helping them to have a deeply loved child. This is why IVF specialists command so much respect - people understand how much good they do.

The problem is that today's IVF doctors think of themselves primarily as being intellectual scientists, whose job is to order the right tests, make the right diagnosis, and provide the right treatment. However, in reality this is a very small part of what we do to help our patients get better - our important tasks are far more intangible , and we need to use our heart much more than our heads to do them well !

We can be the bedrock of support whom the patient can fall back on when she is going through a rough patch in her life - someone she can trust and depend on during her darkest hours. The way we talk, the way we smile, the way we hold our patient's hands, and the way we connect with her has a far greater impact on the patient's life than just providing the right diagnosis or the right treatment.

This is something which we underestimate. During times of crisis - and every IVF cycle can be filled with stress and loneliness and angst, a patient needs to know that there is someone she can depend on - someone who know her, cares for her - someone who will provide her a shoulder to cry on, and provide a human connection. This is the kind of support which a doctor is privileged to be able to provide, and we need to understand the significance of this role which we can play in our patient's lives, which far outweighs anything we can do as regards diagnosis and treatment.

We are far more than technicians , and while we cannot always give all our patients a baby, we can always provide support and succour! We are blessed to be in this privileged position, where we are privy to another human's innermost fears and desires - let's learn to wield this power with care and compassion
