The other day, I was reading about a successful woman doctor, where she talks about her struggle between her work and her newborn baby. I know it is not easy because I see it daily with every client who calls me and tell me their stories.

I watched a prenatal class that taught lactation techniques and about the process of giving birth. I was preparing for the greatest test of my life and felt confident that I had it handled. After all, I am now a cardiology fellow who is juggling fellowship, research, graduate school and studying for the internal medicine boards. I know how to prepare, so I thought…
