Hi there, I’m Issa! I am a medical doctor by profession. I have been in medicine for more than a decade, a wife for a little over a year, and a mother for about four and a half months. What a crazy, happy year it has been! Through this journey I have been helped by many mothers- among them doctors like me. Mothers in healthcare are in a league of their own, from juggling work and life balance to deciding to leave work and stay at home (a very hard decision). I hope to share my story with all mothers and to tell you: you are not alone!

To all the Mamas out there: I hope you are enjoying motherhood as much as I am! Let’s learn from each other, yes? The choices are going to be tough, but the answer will always be clear: Always a mother first! 🙂
