The Story of MedicMum101
I wanted to start this blog some time back but I always felt I was too busy to get started. Often it’s that initial hurdle that feels the highest, right? I am a London-based doctor in Paediatrics and step-mum and mum to 4 children. I created this blog to share experiences, ideas, and hopefully help anyone that may relate to them along the way.
