3 way to support a mom during medical training

From my experience having my first child as a resident ?? Thankful to have had supportive coresidents and training program!⁣

1️⃣Help her in a pinch- her child is sick, daycare isn’t an option, be flexible in covering her clinic or call- she will endlessly thank you and do the same for you!⁣

2️⃣ Check in on her, not just her baby.⁣

3️⃣Schedule events (pot lucks, showers, residency graduation parties, grey’s anatomy viewing nights etc) around baby’s nap or early bedtime. When you become a parent, your schedule changes A LOT. Your “free” time is precious and usually comes in chunks around nap times and after their bed time.⁣

Other moms in medicine- what would you add to the list? How are ways you wish you had support? ??
