Worried the Pediatrician will think you are an Anxious New Mom?: An Interview with The PediPals: Dr. Ana and Dr. Sami
Are you worried that your child's pediatrician office is going to label you an "anxious mom"? Or that they will dismiss your concerns because you're "just an anxious new mom"? In previous episodes, I have shared that I was always concerned about this! I still go back and forth in my head if I have to call the pediatrician to ask a question, thinking "they are gonna think I'm nuts for calling about this...or they are going to think I'm nuts because I should have called immediately after a bump or bruise, etc."
Well, listen in on my interview with the PediPals, Dr. Ana and Dr. Sami because you’ll hear how these pediatricians reassure us that they are here to help and not judge! These wonderful pediatricians have taken to social media and host their own podcast to help give parents trusted information…and take the anxiety out of parenting.
In 2019, Drs. Ana and Sami launched their new company the PediPals after meeting during residency. With PediPals, they aim to educate parents about common pediatric questions, ailments and recommendations, and discuss the issues that require attention but may not be able to be addressed at routine pediatric checkups.
