We start by asking Dr. Tomi Mitchell what a Board Certified Family Physician is. She explains she's done over and above the necessary to practice. Dr. Tomi is certified in two provinces in Canada. She also explains that you are required to continue with the education yearly, and she has done so for the past ten years.
Dr. Tomi went through a near-death experience and shares this story with us. After giving birth to her second child, her daughter stopped breathing, and Dr. Tomi required resuscitating her and taking her to the hospital. They told her it was just reflux, however, Dr. Tomi did not take that as an answer. Eventually, they did put her daughter in ICU. After doing so, she was relieved, however, she went to the washroom and began hemorrhaging very badly.
That was the first of five hemorrhages. The last one was so painful, and at this point, Dr. Tomi was losing faith. She said that it was a strange feeling to feel the pain for her toddler, and her feelings for her newborn were different because she hadn't had the chance to truly connect since birth. Very compelling story.
We also spoke to Dr. Tomi's Mental Health and Wellness Coaching business, and how this part of her life is fulfilling, knowing the changes she's making in other people's lives.
