A Doctor is just a video call away – Literally with Amwell #momsloveamwell


Let’s face it – in ‘doing it all,’ moms neglect an important person: themselves. Almost all moms will agree that the overwhelming joys of parenthood can be matched with equally intense feelings of worry, doubt, helplessness and anxiety. That’s why, when it comes to their health and the health of their family, more and more moms are choosing Amwell as their go-to healthcare option.

Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dieticians and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop.

Lately I have been feeling extremely drained. Being a mother to four young children is a  lot of work. I spend my early mornings nursing a baby, then having to get my two older kids up for school. Right as I have a moment to breathe my three year old is up and in my face for the rest of the day. Every few minutes she is asking me questions, wanting to play, needing a snack, wants to color and I still have to handle my eight month old baby. Right when things start to get quiet here come my older kids from school. Then for the remainder of the evening I am driving from one activity to the next. On Monday and Wednesday;s we are not home until 7:30pm…. oh and I have to figure out dinner somewhere in there.

So let me ask you, when do I find time for myself? I desperately am feeling overwhelmed so I was beyond ready to take Amwell for a spin and talk to a physician on my time. Getting started with Amwell was super easy.

I didn’t have to wait long for my session to start. Less than 10 minutes and I was chatting with a Psychologist. It took quite a few minutes to talk about everything I wanted to go over and Shelby kept wanting to talk too. At the end of the session I decided I definitely wanted to talk more. As an extremely busy mom I realize that while I am putting all of my family before me I am running on fumes and she even said finding time for myself is important. I need to recharge myself so I can be there in the right mind for my family. I look forward to our next session.

    I can relate to your story about being so busy mothering your children, preparing meals, organizing your kids’ schedules, etc., etc., that you don’t have time for yourself. I think this is true about most Moms everywhere. I know my daughter has this problem too as she has days where she feels overwhelmed as a busy, devoted mother & wife. I like this idea of doing a video call with doctors who are available 24/7. It is a very appealing solution to insuring your good health.

  2. Kim James says:

    This is a wonderful thing for busy parents esp. when it is urgent but not life threatening after hours.

    Oh this is so neat! I love that its available 24 hours a day 7 days a week! As busy parents, alot of days its not until the kids go to bed that you have time!
