#136: The Importance of Support Systems for Working Mothers BS Free MD with Drs. May and Tim Hindmarsh

    • Medicine

In this episode of BS Free MD, Dr. Susan Landers, a retired neonatologist with over 35 years of experience, talks about her career and her book "So Many Babies". May, Tim and Dr. Landers discuss the challenges of burnout and overwhelm faced by women in the workplace, not just physicians. Dr. Landers shares her experience of getting to retirement and the struggle with burnout. She also talks about the rewarding aspects of practicing neonatology, and how she got to know patients and their families very well. After retiring, Dr. Landers wrote a book based on her NICU stories, "So Many Babies". About Susan Landers: Dr. Landers is a retired neonatologist who practiced in the NICU for thirty-four years. When she joined a practice of nine males in 1997 she slowly brought them into the modern medical world by changing schedules to be more family friendly, talking about coping with sick children, and proved the benefits of hiring other women physicians. Dr. Landers volunteered for the AAP and served on the Section on Breastfeeding’s executive committee for six years. She took a slight detour in her career and worked as the medical director of the Mother’s Milk Bank at Austin and joined the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. After she retired she wrote a memoir, “So Many Babies.” Are there any specific questions/talking points you would like to include?: What is a family friendly medical practice? How do women physicians accommodate breastfeeding after return to work? How do women physicians handle the demands of medical practice and burnout differently from men? Links!
