As Seattle Mama Doc settles into her new home in Wisconsin, all of us at Seattle Children’s thank her for her many years of tireless work to help you do what’s right for your kids. Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson recognized a need to demystify some of today’s most complex and controversial medical issues. We at Seattle Children’s remain committed to that charge, supporting you with advice on child health, safety and parenting.

Please watch this space as we build upon the foundation set by Dr. Swanson. In the meantime, we invite you to engage with us in these ways:

  • Sign up to receive my Good Growing, a free e-newsletter filled with health and safety information for parents and caregivers , delivered six times each year.
  • Subscribe to On the Pulse, our blog that offers the latest news from inside Seattle Children’s, including patient stories and research advancements.
  • Check out our Health & Safety section, filled with advice on how you can help your kids live healthy and safe lives.

Our mission is to provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible, and that includes the kids who’ll never be our patients. Thank you for trusting us as a source for reliable information. We’re excited to share more soon!
