Life is so hectic and I’m sure you feel it too! I mean literally sometimes the first time I get to sit down and chill is after 9pm. I’m zooming around the house doing things with Jake and Max, working and squeezing in all kinds of other stuff in between. I wouldn’t change a thing. Well, except for maybe a mandatory coffee and magazine break around 2pm every day!
I’ve definitely noticed that having two children in tow has made it even harder to get some of my more typical errands and things done easily. Doctors appointments are high on that list. It’s so hard to find childcare at the last minute when you need to schedule an appointment for yourself! Forget about feeling under the weather. Moms aren’t allowed to get sick. Haha! So, I’m so thrilled to have discovered Amwell.

Why You Should Use Amwell for an Urgent Care Visit
I was excited to try Amwell out when I was given the opportunity to recently. I thought I would be sitting at my computer ready to chat at the exact time I carved out in my schedule, but my family had other plans. Silly me. Bwah! We all overslept, then my kiddo threw a massive tantrum while getting ready for school.
Needless to say I looked and felt a little rough and was still in the preschool parking lot when I connected with my Amwell medical provider to talk about my sore throat. Luckily, Amwell is so flexible that I just took a deep breath and connected through my phone right from the school parking lot. I could easily see the doctor and she could see me! I, honestly, was so pleasantly surprised at how smooth it all went.
Thanks to the doctor’s tips for soothing my scratchy throat, I felt almost instantly better and could get back to the business of getting my life organized for the crazy busy holiday season that is headed my way. I know you fellow mamas know exactly what I’m talking about!
