Overview

Mama Doc Medicine: Finding Calm and Confidence in Parenting, Child Health, and Work-Life Balance by Wendy Sue Swanson

“Parents want to do what’s right,” explains Mama Doc blogger and physician Wendy Sue Swanson. Yet many parents find that defining what’s right can sometimes be elusive, so Dr. Swanson has created this innovative guide to help.
Pediatrician, mother and blogger Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson helps decipher today’s conflicting medical opinions, offers helpful online resources, and shares what she’s learned over many years from her patients, friends and family in this enlightening guide to parenting.

Based on the popular SeattleMamaDoc blog, Mama Doc Medicine is a timely collection of almost 100 entries grouped under the following headings:
1. Prevention for Infants and Toddlers
2. Social-Emotional Support
3. Immunizations
4. Work-Life Balance/Mothering

Using Dr. Swanson’s experience as a mother and physician, this book provides simple answers to the “how,” “what,” “why,” and “who” questions of parenting.

Good information for new parents. I wish I had had this when I was raising children and my daughter who has three already was thrilled for the help. Good stuff from a pediatrician who is also a mother herself. Also bought one for my son and wife who just had their first baby 2 months ago and they also like the good info. And they are planning on following her blog.
