How to handle family and parenting stress as a physician [PODCAST]

“Being a parent in the middle of a pandemic is not easy. Sheltering in place with canceled daycare, school, and college, while also being a doctor or other healthcare worker, working in high-risk, high-intensity situations, presents many challenges.  It also presents many opportunities.

It is possible to choose thoughts about being a physician and a parent during the COVID-19 situation that can help it feel more like an opportunity and less like a struggle.”

Jessie Mahoney is a pediatrician and can be reached at Pause & Presence Coaching.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “How parenting in a pandemic is an unexpected opportunity.”
