    I am still in high school but I am very interested in becoming a doctor. I am however very concerned on the impact this will have on my personal life, I want to have a family and to be able to see my children grow up. I also want to specialise in an area that I won’t find boring. I have a few questions, when is the best time to have kids as a doctor? What speciality is best for a mother?

    Well, there will be mothers in a wide variety of different specialties.

    I guess GP is possibly the most flexible?

    As above, you can work in specialties with more regular hours e.g. GP, certain medical specialties, radiology, pathology, psychiatry etc. And you can train and work less than full time.

    There are several female doctors on this forum who are working and also have children - it's doable :yes:

    Something I've learned through my extensive education at med school is that it actually takes two people to produce a baby, and that there are this thing called fathers who sometimes care about their kids too. Just FYI.
