We are Dr Punam Krishan & Dr Stephanie Ooi. We're both GPs and mums and both recently had our youngest babies during lockdown. This podcast has been born out of the realisation that it’s tough being pregnant or a new parent at the moment. We want to bring you some guidance, support and positivity, throwing in our experiences of parenthood too.
You may think that being GPs means we have it all figured out but it couldn’t be further from the truth!
We are going to be with you every Sunday - grab a cup of tea or even pop us on in the background.

    Ep 9. Self Care During Lockdown: What does this actually look like?

    Ep 9. Self Care During Lockdown: What does this actually look like?

    Self care is so important and something that is spoken about a lot but with so much put onto parents at the moment, potentially risking parental burnout. But in a pandemic and lockdown loops, what does self-care actually look like? This week we speak honestly about how we try to squeeze in a bit of self care ourselves (and the varying levels of success!). We also go through a short guided meditation at the end which we hope you enjoy.
