Is there any way to successfully communicate my child's needs to a medical professional that helps me get results? Big question!

Navigating our children’s special needs on a daily basis is hard. But what makes the journey even harder is feeling unheard and unseen in a medical or therapeutic provider’s office. We’ve all had that figurative (or maybe literal) door slammed in our face. We’ve felt dismissed, disregarded, and just plain stupid.

What if we told you there was an effective, and practical, way to successfully communicate your child’s needs to providers that got results?

There is. That’s why we’re excited to welcome Maureen Peterson to The Honestly Adoption Podcast. She’s a medical professional but also the parent of a child with chronic illness. She knows the ins and outs of communication from both the professional and parental side of things. And she’s here today to share her expertise with us!

A Little More About Maureen…

In her own words… “As a general pediatrician and allergist/immunologist, I have spent my career caring for patients with a variety of acute and chronic health problems. I am a military veteran and mother of three amazing children. I have first-hand experience with being a parent of a child with long-term health issues. Through my own journey, I have learned that to enjoy the life that I was given even if it wasn’t the life I had planned. I became a certified life coach to teach parents how to build self-confidence and decrease overwhelming emotions creating a calm, meaningful life.”

How To Connect With Maureen…
