On the Joys & Challenges of Maternity Leave

Just came across this post in the Mothers in Medicine Blog about the mixed emotions that come with leaving work, for a time, to have a baby.

If you’re a woman in medicine with children, or, thinking about it in the future, this blog is definitely worth a look.  Though, so far as I can tell, the physician-mothers who contribute regularly do not find faith central to their lives, they give a very honest, up-close look at the challenges and joys of balancing family and work.

On my personal website (bryanstoudt.com), I help Christians follow Jesus in a noisy, broken world. I also have the privilege of helping Philadelphia's healthcare students and professionals do this as Area Director for the Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA).

In my spare time, I enjoy roasting coffee, running, reading and learning foreign languages.
