Show Notes

Dr. Susan Landers had it all. A brilliant career in neonatology in the NICU unit, a supportive husband, also a doctor, and three children. It was wonderful, and sometimes, it was far too much.
Today, Susan is the author of So Many Babies: My Life Balancing a Busy Medical Career and Motherhood.

You will learn:

  • Attempting to give 150% to parenting and your profession will lead to burnout 
  • Work- life balance is a myth when in a full time demanding profession while parenting a young family, according to Susan. At best, it’s a challenging juggling act. 
  • Pushing back against perfectionism is key to having a healthy life.
