    Dr. Sonal's Page: The Pediatrician-Mom on a Mission

    Dr. Sonal's Page: The Pediatrician-Mom on a Mission

    As a pediatrician and a mom, there are very few times that we are out of character.

    This week's guest embodies the mom, physician, empath, life-saver all in one.

    She is a neonatologist on a mission to save moms from the sometimes traumatic events that follow childbirth, that sometimes culminate in self-harm or suicide.

    Did you know that many moms take their own lives around 9 to 10 months postpartum? I had no idea it was a thing even though after my last baby, I myself had a health scare at exactly 10 months postpartum!

    Quotables:

    "Invest in your health, ask for that in your registry"

    "Expect it: the first month sucks"

    "Find a support system, reach out"

    "It's ok to include your partner in your child's care"



    Where to find: www.nayacare.org: for telehealth and free consults for moms and their babies.



    Are you a parent struggling with your child who just came out as gay?

    Check out our brand new website! I am so proud of it, and can't wait to share it with you, especially the resources page.

    Our first guest this week is a sister, a friend, a fellow African, a coach, and a fellow mom of an LGBTQ+ kid!

    We met and clicked right away as was discussed in the show, and our bond and sisterhood have continued to soar! As a coach of parents of LGBTQ+ kids, I am so happy to present her episode to you!

    I am so proud of her and the strength she exudes during this episode. She allowed the deepest level of vulnerability and is such an inspiration!

    She shares about her unique position as a Black, African mother of a transwoman, and what it took for her to get to her current position being able to share with no restrictions about her child who is a trans-woman, all while living in Africa!

    Her story is so inspiring that she will be returning for part 2 of her interview!

    See you in part 2!
