spending time with my family

a few of my favorite things

I am a licensed physician, blogger, wife, and mother. I have two precious sons and one sweet daughter. I am so blessed to have a career that allows me to combine my love for children and fascination of medicine. After several years practicing at a pediatric office, I have expanded my education and am becoming an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) as well. As a mother and doctor I understand better than most the challenges faced by new parents. So during my first pregnancy I started the website AskDoctorMommy.com with the purpose of giving parents a physician’s insight on raising children.

"The natural power of breastfeeding is one of the greatest wonders of the world. It is about real love. It is about caring and celebrating the wondrous joy of nurturing a new life."

"Dr. Patricia not only gave me the support and guidance I needed as a first time mom navigating the realities, joys, and challenges of breastfeeding but also the friendship that helped me survive the experience of postpartum. She answered any and ALL my questions no matter how weird or the time. Having an experienced companionate expert that I felt truly cared and listened to me was, and is, the difference between surviving and thriving. With Dr. Patricia's holistic approach my children and I are thriving."

She was able to help me give the best to my little girl
