I also posted this in the family-parenting forum . . .
Hi, I am new to the mom md forums and was just wondering if there is any place on the website specifically for those of us who are staying at home with the kids full-time for a while. I am a preventive medicine physician (did a year of internal med, an MPH, and a preventive med residency, board certification, etc.) and have taken time off at various points during my training to be at home full-time. I've been working part-time for the last four years post-residency and decided to stay at home full-time for a while a couple of months ago. I am looking to connect with other mom md's who have made this choice, whether temporarily or permanently but am not sure how to find them. I've started my own blog (http://doconbreak.blogspot.com/
) and have found a couple of other blogs of SAHM-mds, but that aren't necessarily focused on helping the new SAHM-md make the transition to staying home.
I don't even know how many of us there are. Although I haven't been an active forum participant on mom md, I have used the website as a resource for several years and I've noticed that more moms seem to be saying that they are taking a break from working-- based on my scattered reading of the posts. Still, I am not sure if I'm one of ten in the country or if there is actually a significant number of us in the country.
Anyway, if anyone has any info on a particular place here or elsewhere on the web that is dedicated to us SAHM-MDs, please let me know!
I love this website and am so thankful it exists.
