“Done is better than perfect.” Know when “good” is “good enough” by asking yourself, “What’s the marginal benefit of spending more time on this task or project?” If the answer is very little, stop where U R and be done with it. Boundaries!

Please feel free to keep introducing yourselves while we get started with Q1: Some people know they want children, while for others it's less clear. What are some factors that go into the decision of whether or not to have children?

Astute ideas everybody, now it's time for Q3: Up to 1 in 4 female physicians will experience infertility, compared to 1 in 8 in the general population. What family planning advice would you give someone in healthcare who hopes to have children?

I had my first medical staff meeting today and the medical director introduced me as the new attending and (with my permission) also told the other doctors that I’m pregnant. (1/4)

A2. Speaking as someone who may not be able to have kids (despite IVF) - it is SO challenging as a woman to constantly hear “so when are you having kids?” “Theres more to life than work!” “Family is the most important thing!” - sorry but most men dont face this

One of my fellow students is interested in surgery. So far almost every male surgeon she has spoken to about it says she should only do it if she doesn't want a family. 🤦‍♀️ Now she feels like maybe she shouldn't do surgery.

1/ Yesterday I was told I was in the top20 physician influencers on social media per Medscape. I cringed. I didn’t set out to be a voice on SoMe, I set out to encourage who were struggling as I had/do. I gulped.

Dr. Sonia Anand tells us that sex matters! Tailor the histories, tailor the therapy, and tailor our approach to ensuring access to therapy. Great talk on CV medicine in women and ethnic groups!

'No matter how well I performed as a surgeon, my choice of motherhood was seen as a shortcoming. I was advised to pursue more family-friendly fields since my “priorities had changed.” But remained my dream.'

A2. For those who want to have kids and are unable, it can be challenging to hear others talk about their pregnancies and young children. While happy for others, it can be painful when you want something so badly!

The University of Arizona has an amazing guide to avoid gender bias when writing letters of recommendation. LORs for women are 7x more likely to mention their personal life which is irrelevant.
