Seattle Mama Doc helps parents find calm and confidence

Ever wondered when and why a baby’s soft spot closes, exactly how much crying is normal for a 1-month-old, how to foster generosity in kids or are looking for ways to increase your family’s health? “Mama Doc Medicine: Finding Calm and Confidence in Child Health, Parenting, and Work-Life Balance,” the new book from Wendy Sue Swanson, MD, MBE, FAAP, better known as Seattle Mama Doc, officially launches today and is a great resource to help navigate those questions and much more in the parenting jungle.

“More than anything, I wrote Mama Doc Medicine to connect parents and families with science and story,” said Swanson, who is also executive director of digital health at Seattle Children’s Hospital. “The book has offered up a flurry of opportunity to talk about health and prevention, vaccine science, and my journey as a digital and public physician.”
