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? ??
