The patient made a rapid recovery.
At the time of the pandemic, Dr. Amaka Nnamani, a 38-year-old pediatrician from Hershey, Pennsylvania, was expecting her third child. She already had two little kids, who were eight and six years old. She and her spouse both went back to their prior work outside the home in October. Due to their inability to obtain a daycare facility during the epidemic, the couple experienced neglect. She stated that she would soon be unable to handle it. She never stopped caring about her patients. Although they could not remain together, she still loved them. Nnamani is currently a freelance writer, lactation educator, and consultant.
Of course, owning your own business offers many advantages. But the truth hides a horrific story. Like Nnamani, several women who chose to leave their regular jobs appeared to be doing so more out of necessity than choice. Self-employment is seen more as a necessity than a desire.
