Even the most experienced parents admit they don’t have all the answers. But it’s nice to have a mom, who’s also a pediatrician, offer her perspectives on child health and well-being.

The Childrens Mom Docs are all pediatricians with St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. They work in the emergency room, the newborn intensive care unit, on the psychology team and more. They are also moms. These are more than professional opinions.
