• moms in need of a virtual hug.
The story is written from the infant's point of view. This journey from struggling to nurse to thriving is the story behind the story for the author. The author is an orthodontist on a mission to decrease the need for braces. The author, Dr. Catherine Murphy, is transforming her career. She views the crooked teeth as a symptom of an underlying cause, a cause that is often detectible early: mouth breathing. The pediatrician dismissed concerns regarding her son's inability to breathe through his nose. The pediatrician replied, "Some kids are just like that. You're a geriatric mom who worries too much. Go home and enjoy your child."
Catherine was at a crossroads. Rather than ignoring her maternal instinct, she decided to follow it and find some answers.
Dr. Murphy hopes to alleviate the stress and strain on new mommas by sharing her journey. She understands that seeking answers for the "WHY" behind the condition/concern can come with hurdles. Her desire is to empower mommas to follow their gut, trust their connection with their child and seek collaborative care for their health concerns. Dr. Murphy promotes life enhancing treatments, rather than short term solutions.
