Hear From Dr. Playforth on “The Pediatrician Mom”

As a mother of three young children, I’m right there in the trenches with you. I have a messy house, I fight mom-guilt regularly, and I vent about my children sometimes.

And I am passionate about sharing not just evidence-based information, but also reality. Parenting can be isolating and humbling and messy, but it is also deeply and uniquely rewarding.

The Pediatrician Mom was inspired by the families I have cared for as a physician, and has been a passion project aimed at providing what we all deserve: nuanced, compassionate advice paired with medical expertise to help you become a more confident, empowered parent.

Many websites prey upon our natural fears as parents, fear-mongering and causing us to spiral. I hope to help you avoid the rabbit-hole.
