I created this page for you – parents and anyone with an interest in child health – and for me!

 

As a practicing pediatrician and mom to two girls, I have seen firsthand how important it is to have access to valid, high quality medical information.

 

Parents want to do the best they can for their children, but the plethora of information available and the wide variety of sources of information (friends, family members, social media) can make anyone feel overwhelmed.

 

It also becomes increasingly difficult to separate valid, helpful information from content that is anxiety-provoking and/or inaccurate and dangerous.

I wholeheartedly understand why people turn to “Dr Google” and social media with their questions – it can be difficult to reach a healthcare provider in a timely manner and, when it comes to what’s best for our children’s health and wellbeing – we will go looking for the answers and support we need.

Furthermore, parenting goes far beyond the strictly medical aspects of child health – it’s about eating & sleeping, learning & socializing, loving and growing as a person and family in the context of society.

I hope you find this information helpful. Follow me on Instagram to learn more about me and interact with my posts. I love hearing from you and tailoring my message to your needs!
