In this 118th episode which we are publishing a few days before Mother’s Day, 2019, I welcome Dr. Gillian Isaac to the show to discuss the challenges of being a mother and a trainee and some important advice for how to make it through and feel supported. Happy Mother’s Day and Thank you to all you amazing mother’s out there!

One thing that didn’t come up in this episode that affects new moms a lot is the length of maternity leave. I had a baby last fall as a CA-1 and took 5 weeks which was ok for me… but then I had no vacation for over a year. Many of the females in my residency were excited to hear of the new policy effective July 1, 2019 that will help! http://www.theaba.org/ABOUT/Policies-BOI
Neat to see that the ABA cares about this.
Thanks Rachel and congratulations on your kid! I agree, the new policy is a step in the right direction to support residents who are new parents.
