    Working moms deal with a lot of pressure inside the home and in the office. That’s why Dr. Meg thought it would be great to tackle this issue of finding a really healthy work-life balance. Since comparison games an “mommy shaming” are so easy to be distracted by with social media these days, Dr. Meg wanted to have a conversation with Christy Wright and Rachel Cruze of Ramsey Solutions. Christy and Rahcel are world-class speakers, best-selling authors, working professionals, wives to their husbands, and also mothers. They have great advice for moms who feel called to work, but also do not want to neglect their husbands and children. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg gives you her points to ponder to begin using right away, and she answers a question from a mom who has an almost two-year-old that seems to have extreme separation anxiety problems. Do you have a question for Dr. Meg? If so, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and she could answer your question in an upcoming episode!
