Robyn Potter is a pseudonym for a pediatric anesthesiologist working in an academic center in Canada. She is married to another physician (Pyschiatrist named Tim) and they are parents to 3 young children: Micah, Ariel, and Kirby (ages 7, 4, 2). Following the birth of her first baby, it became apparent that managing “marriage, motherhood, and medicine” was a hot topic. After many passionate and inspiring discussions of this topic with her mentors, residents, medical students, and non-medical friends, she decided to start this blog!
Occasionally, Robyn writes about medical cases and patients. All identifying information is changed to protect the people she works with and cares for. Any medical information written here is merely in the context of Robyn’s own musings and should not be taken for medical fact as it would pertain to an individual’s own medical situation.
