The Medic Mum Podcast

It’s tough being pregnant or a new parent at the moment so we want to bring you some guidance, support and positivity, throwing in our experiences of parenthood too -- We are Dr Punam Krishan and Dr Stephanie Ooi, we're both GPs and mums and both recently had our youngest babies during lockdown.

We are going to be with you every week - grab a cup of tea or even pop us on in the background!
