The Fourth Trimester

av The Medic Mum Podcast | Publicerades 12/6/2020

What is the fourth trimester, how does it impact new parents and more importantly what can be done to make that immediate postpartum journey less isolating? Rarely discussed, but every new mother goes through it. In this episode Dr Punam and Dr Steph share both their personal experiences as well as what the medical guidance is. They discuss everything from baby blues, the crying baby, postpartum healing to mum comparisons and dealing with everyone else’s opinions! They leave you with tips on how to manage the transition as well as how to be kinder to yourself.Connect with us: Dr Punam Krishan - Stephanie Ooi - - This is a Pure Creation Media Production (recorded in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic)DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Om Podcasten

We are Dr Punam Krishan & Dr Stephanie Ooi. We're both GPs and mums and both recently had our youngest babies during lockdown. This podcast has been born out of the realisation that it’s tough being pregnant or a new parent at the moment. We want to bring you some guidance, support and positivity, throwing in our experiences of parenthood too. You may think that being GPs means we have it all figured out but it couldn’t be further from the truth! We are going to be with you every Sunday - grab a cup of tea or even pop us on in the background.
