Here’s the deal, I have seven children and when one of them get sick I often have to load up and take ALL of my kids to the doctor. Not only is that a complete pain and flat out struggle, but I’m taking 6 healthy children where all the other sick kids are. This is a no go. Wouldn’t it be nice to meet with a doctor in your own home?! Could that even be possible?
A couple of weeks ago my family FINALLY took a break from all that’s going on in our crazy, busy lives and went on a vacation. On man were we excited; it was going to be a week of fun, relaxation, and uninterrupted family time. Or so we thought. The first morning we woke at our destination Penelope woke up sick. At first we didn’t think it was a big deal, but when her temperature shot up and she started shaking because she was so cold, we knew a trip to the doctor was in store.
But where? This wasn’t our town, we had no clue where to go. We ended up wasting half a day to pay an arm and a leg in order to meet with a stranger. That’s when I knew there had to be a better way. And wouldn’t you know, there is.

Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are dedicated to keeping you healthy — all from the comfort of your home.
Once I found out about Amwell there was only one thing left to do- try them out! And truth be told, it’s pretty simple and super convenient. All I had to do was head to the Amwell website, log in, and I was well on my way to meeting with a doctor. And this is no joke. You get to actually see and talk to a LIVE doctor through your computer. So there is no guessing as to what’s been ailing you. Nope, they can see for themselves and find the proper course to treat you.
Is that not amazing?! No more sick trips to the doctor, instead I’ll just stay in my pajamas. Because honestly when you’re sick that’s all you really want to do anyways, ha!
Here’s the best part friends, you can try out Amwell with your first visit FREE! Just use code MOMSQUAD! Not too shabby right?! Oh and did I mention that Amwell also has an app so to use on the go?! Now that’s just cool!
