Most memorable moment: Every day spent working with kids is memorable. From assisting first-time moms in establishing exclusive breastfeeding through constant lactation counseling, to sending kids with status asthmatics and active seizures home happily with full recovery, each interaction is equally unforgettable.
Most challenging moment: To create these memorable moments, every step is challenging. Assuaging parents' apprehension and anxiety, and answering their queries regarding their child's health, even when we know the child is doing fine, can be the most challenging situation. Listening to the parents is of utmost importance for the overall treatment of the baby.
