This week on MD for Moms, I'll be interviewing Anne Malavé, Ph.D. about family expansion in the face of fertility struggles. The show, entitled Family Formation, Fertility and Fitting In will address the options available to couples to have children, potential barriers they may face in the process and ways to cope throughout the journey. Parenthood is not always a certain or an easy path, but this show will help by discussing the options in a clear, targeted but empathetic way.

Focus on your child's focus
Dr. Carly Snyder and Dr. Alberto Escallon discuss how to identify and help a child who may be struggling with focus issues and/or anxiety; children do not always express how they are feeling, so we as parents need to know signs that indicate there may be a problem, and Dr. Escallon is going to review these signs and discuss when to get your child help and what treatment options exist.
