Process versus outcome

As an IVF specialist I am acutely aware of the fact that medical technology has lots of limitations; and that no matter how hard I work and how good my services, I can never be certain whether a particular patient will get pregnant in any given cycle. This keeps me humble - and I always tell my patients to focus on the process ( which can be improved and controlleld) rather than the outcome ( which will always be uncertain).

This way, irrespective of whether the treatment results in a baby or not, you have peace of mind you did your best - and this can be invaluable !
