Over 355,000 doctors in the United States are female. Throughout the United States, these doctors balance a variety of tasks: working 60 hour weeks, being a wife, caring for patients, working nights, maintaining a fitness routine, advocating for the needs of others, creating and changing policy, being an entrepreneur -- and some do all of this while being a mother, too.
We recently heard from Dads Married to Doctors, a support group serving thousands of men married to doctors, how being married to a doctor positively affects their lives everyday. These women spend their days caring for others and come home to act as a wife and mother and care for their families, too. Many of the men in the group explained why they are in awe of their wife and everything she has accomplished.
For Mother’s Day, we wanted to take the chance to show these doctors how appreciated and loved they are by their family. Happy Mother’s Day to these amazing doctors.
