Hey everyone...since no one had posted yet I thought I'd throw a question out there! What type of medicine do you practice? I'm a small animal veterinarian.

My doctorate is in clinical psychology. I completed a five year post-doc in NYC where I am now in private practice and loving it! I have a wonderful teenage daughter.

Hi! I just joined. I am in Family Practice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I'm about > 6 years out of residency. My husband is a high school teacher. I work 4 full days a week about 10 hrs a day and I do OB. I have 3 beautiful children, a 4 1/2 yr old girl, a 2 1/2 yr old boy and a 6 month old boy. I've breastfed each until after their 12 month birthday, except the 6 month old of course, we'll see how long he goes... Things are hectic but I love my babies!

Hi Doctor Moms! I'm double boarded in Family Medicine and Occupational Medicine in Chicago. I work 5 nights (42 hrs) a week, which leaves me free during the day to be around my 3 year old little girl. We have a private nanny to help watch our daughter while I snooze during the day. My husband is a judge by day, and a baby sitter by night. This works out pretty well. It gives me plenty of morning, afternoon, and evening time to be with my daughter. I'm so grateful to have night shifts available at my medical center!!!

Hi everyone! I'm currently an internal medicine intern but will do an endocrinology fellowship when I'm done (medicine is just a means to an end). I had 2 babies during medical school. Definitely tough but also definitely worth it! I'm hoping the program I picked is as family friendly as it seemed. :-)

I'm a neonatology fellow in the army. I had my first just as I started my second year of peds residency and my second during my first year of fellowship. But it has been great. Wouldn't change a thing.

Hi all. I just found this group. I am a full time hospitalist (internal medicine trained). My group has not (yet) gone to shift work. So I work 40-60 hours per week, longest shifts being 16 hours. My husband is a work from home realtor that is the primary caregiver for our 8 month old son, Declan. I am still breastfeeding, but have found hospitalist work to be pretty conducive to pumping.

Hi everyone. I'm a Family Medicine trained doc, working in the Urgent Care setting. Just graduated residency in July 2008 (while pregnant) and Elliott was born in October. So, I now have a 3 1/2 month old and am working 2-3 12 hour shifts a week. Breastfeeding and pumping is an adventure but we're doing okay so far.

Hello, I'm new to the group, and i'm a 3rd year medicine resident with a 3 month old! It's nice to find a group of mommy docs! Having a baby in the middle of residency was tough, but we are doing great. I love my job and I love my baby, I don't think I would have it any other way...

I'm so glad to hear from all of you! I have been a veterinarian for over 7 years now. After my son, Jack, was born I dropped to part time and I love it! I work about 3 1/2 days a week. My husband works full time, so when I'm at work we're lucky enough to have his mother watching Jack. Jack's 16 months old...he too talks like crazy...we never thought we'd have to watch what we say at this age!



So do each of you feel you chose the best career path? I love my job...it's challenging and rewarding although sometimes frustrating!
