Meet Mom Doc

Kendra Whittle

The word I use to describe motherhood is a gift. Becoming a mom in July 2017 opened my eyes to what love – real, unadulterated love – is all about. My daughter, Harper Joy, is now steamrolling her way through toddlerhood – I’ve predicted more than once that she’ll eventually be President of the United States. I’m also expecting my second in June – and am both delighted and terrified at the thought of having two under the age of two! My husband, Stephen and I are high school sweethearts and enjoy all things football, taking family walks with our dogs, and traveling (ask him some time about waterfall rappelling in Costa Rica). I think of MomTalks as an extension of my ‘mom tribe.’ The baby and toddler years can be scary – they seem so tiny and breakable (hint: they’re not!) and sometimes it’s a guessing game about what’s wrong. I’m looking forward to coming alongside young moms like myself and learning together about important topics for this particular stage – babyproofing, safe sleep, car seat safety and more – from the doctors and nurses here at St. Louis Children’s Hospital who have literally seen it all!
