“Moms will do anything for their child,” Adrienne of @PostpartumVA tells us. “They won’t miss pediatric appmnts, and they make sure to look OK. But pediatricians need to know when something is wrong, bc how mom is doing directly impacts baby. In that way, the mom is the patient.”

Families dealing w/ #CDKL5 are our biggest inspiration. Read this brother's words to see why: "We have learned so many new things about not just my sister, but about ourselves. She won’t ever be what people say is ‘normal,’ but that’s OK. We will forever love her for who she is"

Dr. Kendall-Tackett of @PraeclarusPress :“I spoke with one pediatric resident who said, ‘I don’t see what #PPD has to do with pediatrics.’ The @AmerAcadPeds would disagree – it considers #PPD within its purview. As the provider new moms see most, pediatricians should be ready.”
